We started our annual Christmas in August trip packing the van using all of our Tetris skills with Marley & Lindy as our centerpiece. Steven was nice enough to drive from Toronto to pick up Bruce & Jackie and bring them in his car.
This year’s theme was a baby shower, since baby Shelby was due shortly. On the Saturday afternoon we had a shower that included gifts and baby games organized by Uncle Lucas.

The weekend wouldn’t be complete without a visit to The Wedding Tent by Aaron, Luc, Melissa and me. The reason why that is funny is story that you will have to ask me in person!!!
