I must say, I LOVE having my family here in Ottawa. Let me correct that, I love having a lot of my family here in Ottawa. I wish my Dad, Arlene and Sam lived here. I wish Jeff's parents lived here (really, who can actually say they wished their inlaws lived in the same city, don't most people wish their inlaws lived elsewhere?), I wish my goddaughter (err and of course, her parents!) and my nieces and nephews lived here. With me, it's the more the merrier. I would even house a family dinner every weekend.
But I digress.
I love that Carson is growing up with cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. He's a little shy at first (except with Grandma, she sometimes comes before me!) but then he gets right into it, chasing everyone around, playing with the cars (my sweet nephew Grant knows how much Carson loves cars and always takes out all his cars for him to play with), yelling, running, dancing and laughing with them all.
We all went over to Dino and Alexis' last night for a surprise birthday party for Nono. We had a great time. Carson was up past his bedtime and it was so worth it to not have to rush out of a party and he got so insanely funny it freaking hilarious. I was laughing at him, and then some, last night.
Anyways, here are a few pictures.
