Weekend wandering

Well, since Marcel is so bound and determined to have a good attitude about all this, I guess I'll just have to quit sulking and move on. Yeesh - he takes all the fun out of my petulant mood. (Yes, for those who asked, there's always next year. But at 41, prolonging your education - and subsequent return to work - for an extra year just seems too long to wait.)

Instead of stewing in disappointment, though, I'll turn to lighter things and give you some of the pictures Michele requested. We had an exceedingly delightful walk along the lovely Seine River. Along the way, we saw lots of wildflowers, a couple of deer and even a fox. The evening was capped off with a fire in Michele's backyard. Ah, what a way to relax with a bunch of beautiful women.
On Sunday, while we waited for Marcel's grad to start, the girls and I did a little more wandering - through downtown Winnipeg. Our favourite part was a photo shoot by the fountain. Maddie was particularly delighted whenever the fountain went shooting up toward the ceiling. (I threw in that last picture because I love the way the light shines on her hair.)

Do you & Marcel have gorgeous girls or what? And you really have an eye for photographing your girls so stylishly! Thanks for sharing the images with us!

Beautiful pictures!

It sounds like your husband has a great attitude!

Linda said...

What lovely pictures! I too had a great time on Friday night.

Cuties!

I was going to say something I forgot in my last comment, Hubba-hubba was not initially accepted to law school, but he made a formal appeal and they took a second look.

Is there a similar process for you to pursue?

Dale said...

Maddie is adorable. I sure miss having a little girl like that.

Linda said...

BTW is the McNally sign in the background intentional or did it just happen?

Judy said...

I'm the youngest of three girls.

Your youngest seems to do the 'third girl' very well!

And, yours are very beautiful girls!

Heather said...

No, Linda, the McNally sign was pure coincidence. Seems like a happy coincidence, though :-)

Yeah, before I even read Linda's comment or your reply I was going to say: Of COURSE Maddie looks happy in that photo, McNally is right behind her. :-)
