Stratford

We have just returned from a few special days spent with Uncle Gareth and Auntie Lindsay in the lovely little town of Stratford, Ontario. Of course we started the long 7-hour haul after dinner, so that Alice and Estelle could sleep along the way. But this time we had a hijacker in our midst... Auntie Katherine came along for the trip!

We arrived in the middle of the night to a lovely little apartment rented for us by Gareth and got a few hours sleep before the activities began the next morning. We spent lots of time strolling, playing in the parks and watching ducks along the river, but we also visited the incredible toy store, went to the legendary "English Shoppe" and ate some outstanding butter chicken (thank-you Raja - a highlight for Guy)

Thank-you Gareth and Lindsay for spending so much time with us as you recuperate and get some time off from work. We honestly wish that we were only a short walk away and that we could meet you at the park for swinging whenever we wanted to.

Waiting for the English Shop to open - we need Twiglets

Self explanatory

Gareth and Iggy stop for a rest

Our summer student came into the office to see what all the laughing about. He laughed at the Scary Guys photo too, even before I told him your name!
Glad you guys had such a great time with Gareth and Lindsay.
See you soon,
Janette

Looks like you're enjoying the camera! Great pics! The girls and I were out when Ani noticed a little girl that was wearing the same shirt that Alice had worn when we saw her this summer... she pointed it out to me immediately. Wish we could get our girls together more often!
Also loved the Scary guys pic!
