WHAT I DID ON MY SUMMER VACATION
We had several people boggle at us when we made the announcement that we had chosen Toronto for our BIG birthday trip. Even the border patrol goggled at my sister on her way into the Canada, when she answered the question about whether she was entering the country for business or leisure. "What the heck are you going to do in Toronto for a week?" he sputtered. Granted it wasn't our first choice, but it turned out to be a good one. We had a fantastic time, and I've got the photos to prove it!

Bryce and Karin at Canada's Wonderland...Bryce doesn't look so amused




I wasn't the only one celebrating a birthday; my mom had hers while we were there! Happy birthday to my great mom!


Best views from the Canada side, it's true!

Who cares about the group shot, look at that waterfall!

Beautiful necklace birthday present from Kathey & Russell!


Joke gift box got Russell! It was filled with books about ice cream (his hobby!) and Swedish gifflar cinnamon rolls


My sister's gift to me was packaged in a HUGE box, wrapped in black wrapping paper and carried, much to the bemusement of the staff and other guests, up the CN tower, through security and into the restaurant. It was filled with 50 balloons and in each one, was a uniquely folded 1 dollar bill. Crazy seester!

There are lots more photos from the week in Canada, but I have to stop somewhere!

What a brilliant collection of photos. You all look as though you are thoroughly enjoying yourselves. The family group one made me laugh, with Karin doing the cross eyes and funny hands behind you and another girl doing the bunny ears behind someone else. They are such typical things my family used to do (along with at least one of my brothers sticking out his tongue).

Lizardmom is looking wonderful - I swear that woman gets younger every year. Have you checked in the attic for an ageing portrait of her? And I can't get over how grown up your kids are - where is that little girl who proudly took Lambi for a walk around your neighbourhood?

Love your sister's present! Very creative and a lot of fun. Obviously the crazy gene rubbed off on all of the Slaughter children. And you look happy and relaxed, so it seems like Totonto was an unconventional but totally right choice for your 100th birthday (and you only look 70.....) *ducks* Even Barky is behaving and looking luxurious and sleek. Win all around I'd say.

Well, lizardmom IS painting again... can you do your own Dorian Gray? :D

We had a great time, and for sure the photos reflect it :)
