More holiday pics

These are the Hollyhocks on Dwights Aunt Sheila and Uncle Earles farm. They, Sheila and Earle, were our hosts for the week we went northern, and what gracious hosts they were. To sum up the week in a few words: bon fires, poodles, fresh baked pies and afternoons by the pool. Sheila had some bee-utiful gardens with many perennials I've admired in seed catalogues. They quickly became a source of some nice snapshots. (a small reminder that there were over 600 photos to be downloaded after the holly-daying...sheesh.)

Miss Muffett surely enjoyed those evening bon fires, one guess as to what was her favourite part... :) (it certainly was not my camera in her face, lol)

You can see the pond in the background of this photo, it was also a favourite for the children. Uncle Earle took the kids to feed 'Scruffy' the duck and that sealed the deal for Ashlyn....Uncle Earle was now her favourite uncle.

This one was taken in the Museum we visited in Ottawa, the dinosaurs awed the children, who would stand with mouth agape just fathoming the life that once lived.

Although there wasn't much for Eden to enjoy at the museum, she sure didn't mind being held in Daddys arms while roaming the floors...sure looks like Daddy didn't mind either :)
