Goodbye to these three..missing them all already.


We dropped off Anna in St. Catharines, where springtime had landed…We’ll miss her too!


..then went to help Julie with hanging her up-coming art show at a lovely winery, 13th Street Winery, St. Catherine’s. Her pieces are lovely too! (juliesniderart).  Fun to time a visit with this. Julie and I had children at about the same time, decades back, in this pretty city.

Frank became the official “baby holder” some years back. He really thrives in this role.


Cody applied some of his alchemy magic, and created oregano oil from the oregano in the garden.


Sisters..I tried to be make B. smile, but instead I was demoted in my job as child photographer. Love the photo though.


Eating outside..actually outside all day. Potter is under the table, and B. is in his high chair by Laura. You can just see the back of it, (it’s like the chairs that Frank made). We’ll be missing all these sweeties.

Anna joined us on our drive to Pennsylvania to see Laura, Cody and B…


B. was thrilled to see his auntie and thought Frank and I were not bad either.


Cody set into gardening on his return from work. Potter did the close up inspection..


..while some of us observed from the sidelines. Wonderful to spend time with the expanded family, and the fabulous weather was very appreciated too.

Ria’s kitchen table cover…so typically Dutch…always makes me think of my late in-laws…Good memories are created around a table.


The dining room table is a whole different animal…with a fabulous view.

RSCN0026 the rain and the wind. Makes it look so young. Is that the secret?


Man out of the rain..out of the wind…happy in the kitchen. Is that the secret to his youth?

Both the robin and the man look alike somehow…
