As usual, we headed up to the cottage to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. Holiday wise, it’s tied with Christmas for me. And if you know me, and how much I LOVE the Christmas season, you will know how much this weekend means to me. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the best weather, which kinda put a damper on things. We tried not to let that stop us from having a good time. Between the rain storms, we headed to Dorset Tower, had a campfire, went for walks, and had a mini family photo session. I took a million and one pictures, but here are a few of my favourites, starting with a view from the top of the tower.
The Bug made it to the top! With a little help from her dad. I would love to tell you that I took this picture of them, but for some reason my legs started to shake around the second level. Weird, because I have been to the top many times. Jose kept on truckin’ and asked a fellow brave climber to grab this photo on them. I stood at the second level
with an old lady who patted my ‘left by baby’ gut and told me to loose it by drinking some drink from a sketchy sounding website – thanks lady! i now feel terrible… and watched them.
We always head down to Gull River for a walk. Here are some photos from a sunnier day. The rain held off long enough, so we were able to grab some family photos. How cute is Bug in her boots?!
I grabbed a couple photos of my brother and his family as well. My niece turned 6 months a few days ago, so I grabbed a few of her to celebrate – you can see those here.
Here’s the fam!! I can’t believe we got one with everyone actually looking at the camera. Even the babies! I hope to make this a family tradition. It will be a nice way to see our family grow over the years.
We made a home video of the weekend too, check it out! Jose did an awesome job. Even added some fancy filters. He’s handy to have around.
