Fall is officially here.
Goodbye warm sunny afternoons,
Hello rain and dreary days...
Please stay away snow, at least for another month!
At least I can make thick, warm comfort soups again!
And not worry about tan lines and shaving!
New shows are on TV again.
Oscar and Rupert aren't wondering as far these days either.
The girls will go to bed on time now that it's dark earlier.
The car won't be scorching and Rupert can come for drives again.

AARRRRGGG! Why do people make such a big deal out of something that should be so easy!

Being PAC Chair is getting frustrating. Why do people jump to conclusions, why do they insist their way is the best, why is there no room for compromise, why can't they sort things out between themselves....?

Why did I agree to this position? oh ya... for the children.... then why do Parents act worse then their children???

R & J's wedding

Lightening, Thunder, Pouring Rain...
All things a bride would hate to have the day of her wedding, specially an hour before the ceremony!
But it was true Albertain weather and the sky cleared 30 mins later and left us with this spectacular rainbow.
The Justice of the Peace, my handsome brother Rob and his Best Man and childhood friend Steven.
Little Cam and Bride's Mom, "Hey you forgot the pillow!)

Take two! Little Cam didn't want the pillow.
My girls, the beautiful flower girls.
Anna was very nervous but did a good job.
The bride's sister and Maid of Honor.
The Bride Jamie and her father.
The Kiss!!
Giving of roses, a unique and lovely ceremony, brought a tear to my eye.

Signing of documents! It's official now!

Where did Anna go?!
The Groom, Bride and their son, Happily together forever!
Girls being too cool
Aunt Kelly, baby Julia and Grandma. Julia loved Grandma's gold purse!
The Bride and her flower girls.
Just after the sunset

My silly Ivy.
Cutting of the cake, Bride's Step mom made it, she did awesome!
The first dance!
Rob dancing with our Mother.
Rob dancing with his little sister Jen, Mom dancing with her son James.
My Father dancing with his daughter Ruth.
Grandpa Hardy dancing with Anna, which surprised everyone as he has the rep of hating children but Anna seems to have turned him into a teddy bear!
Gr. Hardy and Grandma dancing.
Uncle Rob and Niece Anna!

The next morning we had to rush back home, 10 hour drive + stops.
Ivy took this shot of "a really cool tower mountain". I think she picked up my love of nature.
Every mountain is unique.
This one looked strange with the low cloud/fog.
I think this is the same one from a different angle.
One of many pit stops.
Anna and Mike looking for cool rocks in the glacier river.
Hoodoo Cliffs near Kimberly BC
I've been to 9 (I think) weddings in the last 8 eight years and every one has been different but each was special and I enjoyed being apart of each.
Congrats Rob and Jamie!!
