Last Saturday was the annual girl cousin get together in Whitby. This is the Foster side of the family, my Dad's side. Originally my cousin Sandi hosted at her home in Pickering but has since moved to Vancouver Island so now her sister Lori hosts at her home in Whitby which is actually the home the girls grew up in.
4 generations my aunt Joan, her daughter Janice, her daughter Katelyn and 1 month old Maddox

this year the theme was pink!
Now there is a crazy order to these pics, I have been trying to rearrange them with no luck...I give up for now
We headed to the Port Hope/Peterborough area for the weekend to spend time with my parents, celebrate a 50th anniversary and visit with some good friends.
First stop the Whitby waterfront, this is where I grew up and spent so much of my childhood, the fries were delicious!
my parents home...well this is the garden shed
the herb garden
Sunday afternoon for my Aunt Rosemarie and Uncle Jerry's 50th wedding anniversary
At Rice Lake to visit our good friends Richard and Brenda, Brenda always has so many cool vignettes, always artistic, often with a sense of humour, I loved this "fish table"

our good freind Richard, in his newly acquired "living room" on wheels, he took us on a tour of the area, we were neighbours at one time, many fond memories of living there. This car is a 1995 Buick with 25,000 k on it, all you can do with this perfect older car is tour, it feels like you are floating and it is certainly a ""Richard" car
looking across at the house we built in 1984, many good memories of living there
