This is us. We are not great (as our friends and family know) at keeping in regular touch and sending frequent photos. We hope to document big events and/or random good pics we though were worth sharing.

Iceberg in the Quidi Vidi gut today

 I took the first picture.
 Then a strange offered to take a picture of the four of us.
 Maya offered to carry Bertha part of the way...
 Eventually, it became clear that it was going to be too much of a challenge to walk out there with Bertha so I (Mel) sent Aidan ahead with my camera.  He took the picture above and below.

In the double digits today.

Today was warm enough to not wear a coat - I think it broke 10 degrees today.
I felt inspired to get the camera out to take some outdoor pics after camp today, while Scott made supper.
 D'you like the summery skirt with her winter boots? And BIG tissue flower in her hair!

 Aidan reading manga in the front yard....and nibbling on a cube of cheese.

 Maya with Jenna (the doll).

The most climber-friendly tree in our front yard...

Maya turned 11!

 Maya picked a Japanese restaurant to eat out at - on her real birthday.
 This is her - her present - the Anne of Green Gables outfit for her doll.
 Cupcakes after sushi.
 At her birthday party, we made a sleepover cake - to celebrate the 10 girls who came over for a sleepover bday party. Maya wanted each friend to "make their face" on this cake. This is what it looked like when it was finished. Below is a close-up of Maya's (cookie) face (see one on the left).
I didn't include pictures with friends because it's too complicated (getting permission and all).  They had a lot of fun though. Chocolate egg hunt; flashlight tag; pillow fight; etc.


There's a few blocks of ice that have broken off and drifted close to shore. These are pictures Aidan took two weeks ago. Our friend Marcelo is in the first picture.

Not very often... we take pictures of us together.  This was taken a few weeks ago.
