Well, this is awkward.

It's September.

My last post was in March, and I've got some catching up to do.

We went to Mexico.  It was awesome.

I hit the big five-oh.

There were growing up milestones.

Our youngest graduated elementary school.

Our oldest bought a house.

Another one of our boys bought himself a new truck.

It's been a gloriously hot and sunny summer.

 We did Niagara Falls.

Boldt Castle and a Thousand Islands Boat Cruise.

Toronto Zoo.

Camping at Killbear Provincial Park.


Our oldest son is now married, and it was a beautiful, wonderful, magical day.

Then another one of our boys went away to school.  That was hard.

And on the first day of school I realised that my youngest child is in high school.

I have been proud and happy and wistful and sad and nervous, sometimes all at once.

And now that everyone is settled, and the house is a little quieter, I'm feeling strangely adrift.

Time to get back on course!


  1. Whew! You packed a lot in those months. Happy belated birthday then. I miss those 1000 Island cruises so much! Aren't they amazing - my favourite is the sunset cruise. And Boldt Castle is definitely something to be experienced. The Zoo was the one thing we had planned this summer that we simple ran out of time and money to do.
    It looks like it was a lovely wedding.


    1. There never seems to be enough time and money! We soaked up as much as we could...and the wedding was definitely the highlight. Still hard to believe I'm a mom of grown-ups, lol.

      Have a great weekend!

  2. What beautiful photos and a great looking trip #pocolo

  3. Wow, you've had a busy, BUSY summer! And how your kids are growing up -- you must be very proud. Congrats on the Big Five Oh too.

  4. Wow - and welcome back - looks like there's been a lot going on! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo :)
