a wee flashback

You've already seen the series of pictures I took this fall of the boys and their cousins on the red bench, but I've never shown all the others from our little walk-around-the-neighbourhood session.

In an abandoned lot... thankfully there were no needles on the ground (I'm not kidding),

At this point, most of them had had ENOUGH. Liam's eyes were bothering him from keeping them open in the bright light, Rowan had a terrible almost-constant cough, Andrew was having a meltdown, and Simon had a fever and -we would learn later that night- the beginnings of strep throat. Poor guys.

Here we are back at my sister and brother-in-law's place... I think I'd bribed them with cookies or jelly beans or similar to make them stay for a few more shots.

Since we only make it out to Regina once a year (if we're lucky... once we start getting three year postings, it will be even less frequently), I hope that we can repeat these little sessions... although our next planned trip isn't until this Christmas when there will not only be three new babies, but likely feet and feet of snow and ice... we might need to find some alternate locations!

(more flashbacks can be found over at Tia's and Alicia's)
