Celebrating :: family

As previously posted, our daughter Ginette is home from New Brunswick for the long weekend. Yesterday she mentions that her and Luc had a special family activity organized for this afternoon (weather permitting) but they kept it a secret until 11 a.m. this morning.

For many, many years they have both heard me mention (almost beg) to have a new family picture. Our last one was taken 13 years ago. So they went ahead and got a photographer (their cousin Joelene) to meet us at one of our favorite spots in the world ''the ocean'' to have a few pictures taken. We had fun in the process...

Here is a sample of what we got (please note that the quality of the original pictures is much better then these posted versions) :

Did I ever mention how much I love these two wonderful human beings... !!!!!

In a few weeks, our son will be moving out of our home to take on a job in a town 3.5 hours away. This is hard for me to accept, but I know, I know... he has to fly with his own wings.

Everything happens for a reason - this updated family picture could'nt have come at a better time.

I think with this post, entitled ''Celebrating :: family'' I might start a series of ''Celebrating'' posts.
