As previously mentioned, we went camping over the weekend at Algonquin Provincial Park. We stayed at Rock Lake and we had a really great time. The kids got a kick out of sleeping in the tents, especially Paige. She absolutely loves tents and didn’t want to come home.
This was a common scene for us. We saw many, many moose over the weekend. This particular one didn’t mind visitors coming in close for a photograph. The kids got very excited every time they saw a moose. They kept their eyes open to the sides of the roads on a constant vigil to see yet another.
Although cousins, you would never know it because they often act like siblings. They adore each other and love to play. They also enjoy posing with hugs or holding hands. It is really cute. That redness under Paige’s nose is the remnants of a cold. She rubs her nose roughly with tissues or her sleeve which leaves it rough and red.
I’m not going to be sharing as many photos as I normally do, despite the fact that we got quite a number of great shots. Sorry. Paige is now over her cold but I’m in the middle of my sickness and just don’t feel up to a lengthy post. I’ll close out this post with a few nature shots that my hubby took when they went on a hike (I stayed behind as I was feeling quite poorly so I rested in the tent).

We were on our way home from a camping trip (post and photos to come later) when we received notice that some dear and long-time friends of ours had a tragedy while we were away. Their beautiful little 5 year old son (the oldest of 3 siblings) was playing in his little sister’s bedroom when he somehow fell out of her 3rd-storey window and landed face first into the concrete below. The good news is that his spinal cord does not seem to be injured but he does have a little bleeding in the front of his brain and has shattered his face in more than 20 places, including his forehead, both eye sockets, his cheeks and his wee nose. He is still in the critical 48-72 hour window and can really use all the prayers and good thoughts that people can send. This poor little guy is going to have a long road to recovery as he will require extensive facial reconstruction.
If you can find it in your hearts, could you keep little Desmond in your thoughts and/or prayers as well as his parents and the rest of his family as they deal with this horrific accident. Thank you.
