getting together

This was an unusual Remembrance Day-- Ususally the weather on Nov.11 is dreary, bleak, and overcast, ---much like the mood of the day--- but this year the sun was out, skies were blue, and Jason and his family stopped by!!
We walked the 2.5 km nature trail which borders Riverside Cemetery--- so we stopped by to include Chris. Even after three years, it's still a gut-wrenching!

We really enjoyed the afternoon--- except the stroller we started off with--- broke down----- and the "weakest link" ended up on my shoulders ---He (Austin) said his legs were broken!

Funny how they got fixed in a hurry when he saw the playground!!! and I turned into the weakest link!

Funny to think that my Autumn is long since passed... My outdoor frolics now require snow pants and a down parka, neck warmer, toque, leather/sheepskin mitts and a fur rimmed hood... LOL!!

Hope I get my new digital camera soon so I can post some recent pictures!
