Family pictures

As a gift for Mom for mother's day, we hired a photographer to do our family pictures. We finally found a date that worked for all of us and went out one Saturday morning to get some updated pictures taken. We got them back a few weeks ago, and they are fabulous!  Here's a smattering of my favourites.

The animal farm

Sometime ago (September? August maybe?) we went to Happy Ralph's animal farm. We went there when we were kids, so it's fun to take my kid there now. A lot has changed with the accesibility of the animals - except the ducks. You can still get up close and personal with the ducks :)

We'll title this one "Bird lady"

What a difference a year makes

For Mike's first father's day (June 2013), I bought him a leaf's jersey and a matching on for Liam. As the weather turns colder, we put them back on.  The first two are from November 2014, and the third from June 2013.  What a difference one year makes!

Fall time

I'm not sure if you can tell, but we have the cutest child in the whole wide world!

'Helping' Mommy rake the leaves

Thanksgiving day we spent with the Heikoop's. We went to the craft show, and then hung out at mom and dad's house for dinner and then for a couple of hours of family time. We are blessed!

Also, Dylan celebrated his birthday on Thanksgiving :) Happy birthday bud!

The cottage, the fall edition

We spent an extended couple of days at the cottage. We went up to paint and work, but Mike, Liam and I went up a day early and enjoyed things like sleeping in, the fall colours, a boat ride, the leaves.  It was beautiful weather for the day that we were there, and then once everyone else joined us to work, it rained and was super cold!

Super early in the morning, but the sun was coming up, and the son was up, so we went out to enjoy it.

Liam LOVES dogs, so when Aunt Sandi and Uncle Al's dog came over from the next cottage, Liam was all smiles :)

Thank you kisses
