One Wedding, One Christening and a few days in Paradise.

So we are back from our action packed jaunt to Montreal and Mont Tremblant. It was a great week filled with love, laughter, busy, festive times with wonderful family and friends as well as quiet down time enjoying the sights and sounds of nature for me and the hubby. Other than the crappy Summer of '08 weather, it was a perfect summer vacation !

Here are some photos highlights.

Andrea & James' Wedding - 08-09-08

The bride was beautiful, relaxed and radiant. The groom was handsome, oh so proud of his woman, and so obviously totally in love. A great time was had by all !

I love this shot of the first dance smooch ! And this is what was happening down below !

I hope this symbolizes their marriage for always - love and comfort from head to toe !

Kate's Christening - 08-10-08

Katherine Ainsley deBroin Monaghan was baptized in the same quaint Catholic church in Mont Tremblant where her parents John and Kristina were married. Proud Auntie Kim and Uncle David served as godparents.

Kate actually woke up just about 5 minutes before the actual water-on-the-head part of the ceremony which was perfect ! Welcome to the world, beautiful little one !

The "Lion King" moment !

Five Days at Lac Bibitte - 08-11 thru 08-16

David and I had a quiet time at the cottage. We read and slept a lot and spent a lot of time watching the beautiful loons feed their baby on the lake. The weather was kind of grey and kind of cool pretty much our whole time - except for the day we left of course !!!

We took care of Katie one morning so Kristina and 5 year old Thomas could have some mommy and son time. Isn't there something so beautiful about a scruffy, handsome man holding a baby ?

Or even better, a sleeping baby !

One handsome godfather you have there, Katie !

And as a finale, here is a photo of me in the beautiful dress that my friend Lois made for me to wear to the wedding. I didn't get a good shot of it from the wedding day so had to do a photo shoot, Lac Bibitte Style !

Cheers, all !

Glad to be home and anxious to catch up with everyone ! Happy Monday !
