Holiday

Sorry I haven’t been ‘round lately, we’re just back from a wee holiday in Kingston with my lovely in-laws. It's wonderful there, except for the dial-up (I almost slit my wrists just trying to check my email). We did lots of lazing by the lake and sleeping in. I reread Wuthering Heights for one of my fall classes. McHotty played with his new iPod I surprised him with for his birthday/fathers’ day gift (thanks for all your help Jana and Niloc! He was thrilled.) Cakes had a blast with her grandparents and is now all about the ducks (bunnies are so last week). We ate and drank like kings (I think I’ve gained five pounds) and made it to the pub once. As always I took lots of photos:

That second photo is a dream! Where did you find that hat? And the last one with Dad, so very very *sigh*.

Cakes is positively cherubic! Seriously, have you dressed her up like an angel for Hallowe'en yet?

I'm always so wistful and jealous when you guys go up to Kingston. Sigh.

Sounds idyllic. I'm a smidge jealous...

But I lvoe how that first picture is a tiny bit smudgy and has taken on the look of an antique postcard with the chubby cherub cheeks and curls. Gorgy.
