Here’s to the first weekend of Spring 2011 !

Here are my top 6 photos from the lovely weekend we had in La Conception, Quebec for my beautiful nephew Tom’s birthday :

They were pretty inseparable all weekend.

And though it is blurry, I absolutely love this shot. Katie and David, sharing laughs, which was pretty much a constant sweet noise in the background of our weekend.

*****************************

It was a very nice time with lovely family. I am so grateful for the love, understanding and laughter that we share every time we are together.

The only down side to the weekend is that we are nursing a sick Chica-dog. She has been throwing up and having the runs since Friday off and on, especially during the night. I thought she was better yesterday when we kept her on a bland diet for a few days but the vomiting started again last night. Off to the vet later today to see what else we need to do to help her feel better.

This afternoon I am guiding another art journaling afternoon at my friend Patti’s house.  It will be good to get lost in the color and the process for a while.

I hope your Tuesday is full of sweet moments, Beautiful Ones.

Big Love.

Fabulous photos of happy sunshiny people...just what you want when you spend time with those you love.

Sorry to hear that Chica has been ill...a trip to the vet will be just the ticket to get her back on her feet.

Enjoy your art journaling as you guide others through the creative process!! xo

Good luck Chica

It's blooming! Looks like a good time was had by all. Except perhaps Chica. She may have eaten something nasty, I hope your vet has straightened it out. Now, 8 is something I can relate to but it's kind of scary because it's just one away from 9 which is, in itself, one away from double digits. Yikes!

Kate said...

I hope Chica is feeling better soon. Loved all of you in that flower headband, even David.

Cinner said...
