This past weekend, my mother celebrated her birthday. The kids and I (Erin was sick with strep throat) joined her and Grandpa Eric at the Boathouse in Guelph. For the occasion, Vivian wore a classic hat that had been a favourite of her great-grandmother Cora Pheifer.
Busy times, here. We’re preparing to leave for our annual summer trip to see the grandparents — a week in Des Moines, and another week in Fresno. We hope to hit the road in the afternoon and will drive to Des Moines. A week from now, we’ll be taking a plane to California. The trip should include a day-trip to San Francisco, and I’m looking forward to seeing the cable cars up close.
