It was a short but wonderful visit with  my folks. On Father's Day, right after Justin preached at WTBC, we loaded the kids into the car, hit the road for what turned out to be a beautiful drive, and arrived in Ottawa in time for the evening service. (It was great to see some faces of those we love and miss in the Ottawa RP church.) My Dad didn't know we were coming; it was a Father's Day surprise. I only wish my sisters could have been there at The Farm with us too...

Pool time with Nana!


'Basketball' time!

This tree is the "monkey climbing tree" that Jakson discovered. The boys loved it! In the picture below Josh is mid-monkey-sentence saying "ooo-ooo-aaa-aaa". Little monkey.

After years of Jake cooperating sweetly and beautifully for pictures, he's in a new phase where he finds great amusement in, just at the moment that I click, making a "hyena" face, or some other non-pleasant expression.   It's irritating, for sure. But kind of funny too.

Justin worked from Ottawa for two days, and the picture below is the scene that he looked out upon while he worked. We're both city people, he and I. But even so, he said this was such a peaceful and enjoyable scene to behold while he worked.
