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.

A smattering of photos taken from May to August 2014

Included in this window of time was a trip to Japan (Mel only, for a conference) and a family excursion to Gros Morne and L'anse aux Meadows.

Finished the first draft of my thesis thanks to countless hours at coffee shops.

For a school musical....made it with Aidan.

Studying for exams with rat company.

End of year concert for B.

Never. Just posing.

Aidan is taking stellar pics now. He's making his own book of photos...

Maya got a major award at the end of the school year. The Connie Carver Award - 1 male and 1 female student gets it a year to recognize people who exemplify kindness and inclusiveness.

In Japan.

Smartin came out for a visit:)

Our anniversary - celebrating 16 years.

We splurged. We went out for the most expensive supper yet. It was a stunning meal and I thoroughly enjoy it. We also got a window seat and watch an iceberg drift past the narrows.

Mel's Bday

Well, until shortly after my birthday, I was the main person that took pictures in my family. So, I couldn't find any bday pics of myself. This beautiful cake was made by a friend in my book club - it was delish!

In reality, there is probably some picture of me on my birthday on Scott's phone but those photos don't have a system for getting downloaded and added to our family computer.
