Spring?

Once again, one special Grandma has gently reminded me that I am behind in photo updates of her grandkids so I am doing my duty and checking in. I actually take photos all the time but I just forget to post for a while. Sorry Mom!

Spring in Ottawa has been beautiful this year. It came a few weeks early which has given us fantastic weather for much longer than usual. Ottawa normally has a big tulip festival every year scheduled for about the second weekend of May but since the warm weather came so early the thousands of tulips around town were almost gone when the festival started, luckily I went out early and took some photos of the girls with some pretty flowers. For those of you who have never been to Ottawa I thought that it would be a good idea to show you some of our beautiful city. Ottawa is pretty small for a capital and the have done a fantastic job making it beautiful all the time. We have a big river that runs North of the city and then down through the Eastern side of the city as well as a canal that runs through the downtown. On both sides of these water ways are paved jogging/bike paths. This day we were taking a walk from the University where Adam goes down one of the canal paths. In no particular order.

PS. more photos are to come soon, we just got back from a little trip to Nova Scotia where I took a ton of photos but we are trying to buy a house this weekend soooooo I will have to do it later.
