What a strange experience to not have to go to work - and yet to stay just as busy "playing house" and getting things ready! (which included submitting a request for maternity benefits)
The belly seemed to have a wriggly good time anyhow...
(In case you're thinking we're brave/crazy to be driving so far into the wilderness such a short time before the birth , not to worry... we had the hospital suitcase, and Guy was fully prepared to drive like Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights to get us there in time!)
Guy was a great sport and participated in the Cambior Olympiad (look out for the 5 man ski-train at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics)
Here they are again... our "camp counsellors"

Eric and Simonne prepare to devour the cake - will it be the trunk or the tail first?
Simonne is surrounded by gifts!
Pascale - proud mum!

Last night we headed to the Ste-Eustache drive-in to see "Bon Cop, Bad Cop", a quebecois movie that is getting good reviews, and stars Gareth's close personal friend, Colm Feore. Unfortunately it was "parked out", so instead we saw "Deux flics a Miami" (Miami Vice, dubbed in French)...
And what did we learn about the drive-in? As long as you have a radio that works, yummy snacks and a good friend to watch with, the movie isn't all that important! We had a fun time listening to Colin's Farrell's french-quebecois accent! That's some good acting...
A closet full of pretty (useful) things!
The beautiful quilt and matching bedskirt made by Wendy.
Some of the thoughtful shower cards we receivedAnd the itty-bitty cards!
Truth is, we needed a new bed, and the extra few inches (we're up to a queen size!) will be very welcome when we toss and turn at night worrying about what kind of friends our daughter is hanging out with and whether or not she really must wear such short skirts...
