Am amazing vacation...

We are back home and all had the most amazing time with our lovely friends and family in Canada as well as some exciting adventures in LA.  We took over 1600 photos....I know, a little over the top maybe, but don't worry I won't put them ALL on this blog. So, in no particular order here are some special moments captured........

Above: Sophie and Luc with cousin Justin at Memere and Pepere's house.

Luc...looking a bit cold straight out of the pool and feeling jet lagged after our huge journey in the sky.

Happy Canada Day.... Sophie with Aunty Ginette.....as soon as this picture was taken the cake then  fell to the ground..oops!

 A game of cards first thing in the morning with Pepere

My first Lobster roll on the trip...yes, the first of many!

Denis's holiday lunch almost everyday...

MORE lobster...you get the idea. It was so so good and cheap and Sophie loved it as well.

The kids spent hours searching for hermit crabs and letting the "tickle fish" into their homemade hermit crab pools. With friends Miriam and Genevieve.

cottages right on "the Bluff" at Parlee beach...lot's of sand banks today.

how lucky we were that the cottage we rented had this huge trampoline....the kids loved it and so did us parents as they were so busy.  There was a TV and DVD player in the cottage but not once in 2 weeks did the kids ask to watch TV...it was so nice, they were always too busy running around.


practising for the "family circus"

entry to the cottage...huge grassed area and fire pit to the far right

just loved this "sun room"...enclosed with fly screen all the way around. A great place for a coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon...great for anything really, ha ha!

the girls "face painted" Luc to look like a zombie!

Al, Sophie and Luc..good times
