Canadian family

A few photos of our Canadian family taken while they were over here. As I said before, we didn't take many photos at all - we were just enjoying being together again and catching up.
Owen is now 6 but lived in the UK when he was little. Shannon and I used to meet up quite regularly and go out and about around town with him. Shannon was hoping being here might jog his memory but I don't think he remembered anything :( We hadn't met Finton before they arrived, he's now 3 and was born in Canada after Ryan and Shannon left the UK. What a little cutie!!! He was just adorable - made you want to smother him in kisses (not that he would probably have enjoyed that!). I'm just so glad we got the chance to meet him at last.
Finton and Shannon :o)
I need to edit a few more photos soon so I can post them as well. These are really for the boys Mama (Grandma) Merle who didn't make it over from SA as we had hoped. Hopefully we'll see you next year Merle!

One month on ...

It's a month since we took Claire's first pregnancy photos - where she only had a little slope, not quite a bump. Well, yesterday it was time to take the second ones and there is more of a bump ;)
Claire is now 14.5 weeks pregnant and her next midwife's appointment is mid June. She's now thinking that she might find out what she's having at her 20 week scan at the beginning of July. I can understand why but it wouldn't have been for me, part of the "fun" of the birth was finding out whether the baby was a boy or a girl. There's still another 5 and a bit weeks before the scan, still time to change her mind again (perhaps a couple of times ;) ).
