Part of our backyard. We're gathered in the shade.

More shade, and some food. Also some of our great next-door neighours.

party03


My sister-in-law Marcie ("mkk") made the trip from New Jersey. Our nephew Dave drove from western Massachusetts, met his mom at the Buffalo airport, and they drove up to our place together. We spent Saturday evening and part of Sunday with them, which was a really special treat.

party04


Our friends James (of wmtc commenter fame) and Lori.

party06


S&A, fellow US defectors. They moved to Canada three days before us - and found us through my Globe & Mail essay.

party07


Shane and his wife (not sure how to spell her name).

party09


A nice party photo. Someone showed up without a face.

Lori, Paul (Ellen's partner), and Dianne. Dianne and I met in an online community, long before I ever thought I'd move to Canada.

I'll get you my photos soon! Have to cull through them properly.

Claudia wants to see your pictures of Maggie. :)

James said...

I got lots of Maggie, since she was all over the place. Is it OK if I go ahead and post them to my Flickr site?

L-girl said...

Oh yeah! I told Claudia I'd send her the link after they were up.

Maggie is so cute, and you are a good photographer, so I am curious to see them, too.

James said...

They'll be up tomorrow. :) Got some nice ones of Cody too, but not so much action as with Maggie.

Great photos! Our visit certainly was a treat for Dave and me! Next time Marty will join me, too, and maybe someday, Jake and Eva.

oh wow L! so nice to see the pics you promised! It looks like a busy backyard, which by the way it looks very beautiful. is it the type that doesn't have fences connecting the other house behind yours? Very nice! guess I posted the book on the blog already... we'll have to get a copy of it! good day L!

L-girl said...

They're great!! I'm going to link to them in a separate post, and also send Claudia (Maggie's mom) the link. Thanks so much, James.
