We had no plans for Canada Day and the girls were excited for a day at home. A few phonecalls were made and before noon a plan was in motion.
I was so happy that everything had come together on such short notice. I was thrilled that Joanna, Bert and Campbell hadn't left on vacation yet. I was anxious to see Heather, Graham and Logan and estatic that I was going to be able to give them all big hugs. Sometimes phonecalls and words over e-mail just aren't enough.
Everyone needed some hugs and it was time for a CHEO TRIO Reunion!!

|Logan is keeping his eyes on that pool water over there... so serious|

Look at this unbelievable woman. She is the picture of strength. I'm so happy that they decided to come and spend Canada Day with us after such a traumatic day the day before. I'm not sure I would have been ready to face people and smile. That's one of the best thing about getting together with the people who "get it" - you don't always have to smile, and even a tear or two seems to be the norm!
Moments after this picture was taken, Logan snapped a picture of me taking a picture of him. He was saying 'cheese' behind the camera but you couldn't see it! I had to choose this one to post since it's the only one where he was smiling. He may look like his Dad but he handles that camera just like his Mom!

Apparently Graham had something against our pink camouflage lawn chair. It broke after a couple hours, and then completely collapsed about an hour after that! Made for lots of laughs. Story goes that it must have been a cheap chair - hmph!!!

You're never too old for sparkler fun!!

|Logan's not so sure about the fireworks|
|Nope. He's sure. Doesn't like them!|
|Let me show you to the door|
I'm looking forward to many more impromptu get-togethers!!
