Weekend Recap

What a crazy weekend we had! The whole weekend revolved around festivities celebrating this great country that we live in.

On Saturday we went to Kathy and Joel's for a BBQ. We finally got to meet Bear. He's a lot bigger than he looks in his pictures but oh so cute! We also finally got to meet Doris as she and Miss Daisy made their way down the 401 to join us. Dan couldn't make it this time, hopefully next time we'll be able to get them both in the same room. What a riot Doris is! She gave us cute little curly hair clips (that I will take a picture of and post shortly) for the peanut. Shawn instantly fell in love with Daisy as he is seriously dog deprived right now (he's more of a dog person than I am).

Also in attendance were Catherine, Rhonda and Josh, Jill, Jaap and Adriana and we got to meet Laurie, Jamie and Sophie. The two girls got along so well and played very nicely with each other the whole day. Here are some highlights:

The tattoo sisters (Doris and Adriana).

Adriana and Sophie ready for a spin on Lake Ontario.

The cake that Rhonda and Josh brought over, kinda appropriate.

The whole gang (almost, guess who's missing).

On Sunday, Shawn and I made our way over to my best friend's place for another BBQ. Latila had just purchased a BBQ so we went over to break it in. Shawn helped out by taking over the BBQ and making lunch/dinner for everyone. We then went to a park when it got dark to go watch the fireworks and of course, they were spectacular as they always are. I love fireworks, they remind me of when we were little. Hannah, Latila's daughter was freaking out a bit during the fireworks but then she got excited about it, calmed down and enjoyed herself.

On Monday we went to Glen Eden Conservation Park with Shawn's friend and his family. Once again it was a great time. The area we were in was pretty secluded so weren't around too much noise. Guess what we ate...more BBQ! Needless to say we're all BBQ'ed out.

Back at work today, tired as anything but what a blast we had.

This is Bear. I do not appreciate the reference to my stature as "Bigger Than He Looks In Pictures". I am, what we in the feline world call "Big Boned".
What do you expect, anyway? I live with two crazy food fiends!!! Do you realize how much candy is in this house on any given day? A cat is ust lucky to break even on the BMI scale.
