Foto Friday

Blogger is being most uncooperative with regards to uploading photos, so I'm using the more cumbersome method of importing them from Flickr. The first is of the little guy who is obviously waving to his Buppa — clever fellow. Literally, he has gone bye bye for the weekend. Mom and Dad have taken him on a long journey to Sarnia to visit friends, one of whom is a new mother. we all feel that he'll cope with the trip very well, but that Nikki Dee wouldn't. So guess what?

Hi Buppa

She's staying home with us; that's what. It will be interesting to say the least. maybe we'll do some more work on her alphabet, which she knows surprisingly well by the way.

Learning Her Alphabet

She has trouble getting the shapes to fit, but she can call many of the letters out and will immediately take them to the right spot on the board. Oh, to be young ... and smart!

And to get really excited by finding the W in your hand.

But wait, there's more!

I have some photos that I took two weekends ago on the Maple Run Studio Tour. It was a gorgeous day, better than today for sure, and I topped it off with a double dip, waffle (dipped in Belgian chocolate if you please), Rolo ice cream cone. I am now on a diet. Anyway, these photos are taken at Chris Van Zanten's place. He's a glass blower up Pakenham way. There are more photos on my computer, but this is as far as I've got. I quite like some of them, but most are better when viewed large back on Flickr.

Those photos look very good to me. So will you and Cuppa will be organising an Easter egg hunt for Nikki Dee?

Nice pictures but that W one is cracking me up. W is a very fine letter, so I've heard.

Great Pics. I love them. But I love pics of rustic places.

Beautiful photos of Nikki Dee and also the glass blowing studio. What great shots of the glass. I enjoyed viewing them.

Enjoy your weekend and have lots of fun. Happy Easter to you and yours.
