End of Summer Picnic

2020 was so hectic…I think most people can agree with that. The last 6 months flew by so quickly with working full time–adjusting to online teaching and balancing being a mum it was hard to find time just for me. This meant a lot of things ended up on the back burner– one of those things was editing photos. But I’m trying to have more balance in 2021 and make time for my creative and fun outlets–starting off right away I mean it’s only March. So bare with me as we go back to a few fun times that happened in 2020 as I document them here to remember in the future.

Let’s go back to the summer…it was a hot summer night. It was Friday, August 28th. We decided to go have a McDonald’s picnic at Scotsdale Farm and then had an impromptu photo shoot.

There was a filming that was going to start at Scotsdale Farm in the next few days so there was hay bales and some other props that had been brought in. It actually looked more like a working farm and was so much fun to see it in a new light.

She doesn’t have a poker face…I am always so amazed about how what she is feeling or thinking shines through so strong! I hope she never looses this trait.

Sisters! Darcy and Jordy had gone for a hair makeover earlier in the day… so to mark that occasion we decided to take some photos. Jordy was going to go to her new job in Windsor and Darcy was heading on her journey to get married and live in Texas.

They didn’t know when the next time they would see each other would be but they so know how to embrace the moment…and pack in a bunch of memories.

It was so much fun spending 2 weeks with both Jordy and Darcy. Watching them with Katie… reminded me of time I spent with them in Australia when they were 3 and 4!

1, 2, 3… swing!

Anything can become a stage when you are 2 1/2 years old and are wearing your favourite Dinosaur dress that twirls…

Darcy graciously snapped a few photos of Katie and I… reminding me I should be in front of the camera too!

“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defence attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.”
—Barbara Alpert

I’m so glad that 2020 brought us back together… and I got to spend time with you as adults.

Katie and I miss you. Katie still refers to the one side of the basement as “Darcy’s side” and the big bed as “Jordy’s bed”. But are excited you are off having your own adventures and we can’t wait for you to visit again at some point in the future.
