vacation photos

We've been in the Waterloo region now for a week - so I thought I'd share some of the things we have been doing...

we went to the Brier!!!

we visited with our neices, Evelynn (2 weeks old) and Sydney (19 months old)

we visited Great grandma Becker

we took a GO train to Whitby

we ate super large pancakes from Angies Kitchen for breakfast, and then apple fritters from the St. Jacobs market

I bought myself some new shoes
