So a few updates. I promised that I would show you what I made for Winslow's for father's day gift. I realize it is late, but that just seems to be how I am rolling these days. So for Winslow's gift, I made him a hard cover picture book using the iphoto application on my computer. It was really easy, just drag and click, and it was delivered right to our doorstep. I used all of my favourite photos that I have taken over the past year and titled it " First Year of Fatherhood".
So as you can see, this is how it turned out and he was very happy to receive it. Oh and as a separate gift, he chose out a new watch that he will need for when he is on the job up North.
On a totally different note, it was mentioned to me yesterday that I never told you what I received for Mother's Day. I know I had mentioned that I really wanted something from Lisa Leonard....and YES I got it! I didn't mention it at the time because it came almost a month after Mother's Day (they take a long time to ship to Canada). So here it is! And it is absolutely gorgeous. I love it and wear it everyday!
So Noah and I are now here in Ottawa until July 4th. Winslow joins us on the 30th, just in time for Canada Day!!! I can't wait to take Noah downtown for Canada Day and also can't wait to dress him up in red and white. Anyone who knows me, knows that I just go crazy for Canada Day...yes I do!
We have a lot of visiting to do with family and friends and I am really looking forward to doing a few of my favourite Ottawa-summer things like go to Meech Lake and eat gelato in the market!
I hope this update finds everyone enjoying the start to summer (or winter for my Australian and New Zealand friends). I'd love to see some of those summer to-do lists that people mentioned they'd try to do. Remember, fun things only!
