Happy Canada Day!!

Well, technically, I'm an hour late, so Happy Belated Birthday, Canada!

We had a great day today. Once we realized that we would be in town for my birthday, Gary called up my family and organized an impromptu birthday party at my sister's pool. We all swam, bbq'd and generally enjoyed each other's company, as we always do.

I took out my zoom lens and went to work! Got some great shots today. Here's a few:

Connor, getting a lift from Dad:

Aili and her adorable inner tube/tshirt! This is a Godsend around the pool! Especially for a little Miss Diva who LOVES the water!

My beautiful niece, Sarah - takes after her aunt, you know... ;) LOL!

My crazy nephew, Cory - I'm sure he gets that from the "other" side of the family... ;)

Aili (and her shoe fetish) in all their glory...

This sums up what we all felt like at the end of a hard day's play:

One photo opportunity that I missed - Connor learned how to dive today! Unfortunately, I was the one teaching and no one else thought to get the camera! :( It cost me $3.00, though... that boy drives a hard bargain! LOL! Money can be a highly motivating factor with him, I have found... I may just need to take out a second mortgage though - his negotiating skills are impressive! :)

Thanks for reading!
