Thoughts of Spring

We had a nice Easter and took a quick trip up to the Peace Country. We stopped in for a visit with my parents while we were there. Mom pulled out some boxes and we discovered some more old family pictures. She let me borrow the box to organize and scan, (almost like Christmas for me). Now just to find the time to get started. Seems like it's been busy around our house, the past couple weeks and it's also time to gather paperwork for the accountant too.

The Challenge over at Blush-n-Dusty this month, was to scrap your favorite thing about spring. The kit was Flora Fun and there were several quotes to choose from. The return of the Canada Geese, always signifies to me that spring is on it's way. It is such a beautiful sight to see them soaring across the sky in their "V" formations, honking as they go, looking for some open water.
I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully spring will be here to stay soon. Have a nice weekend!

Walk Down the Aisle

The weather was beautiful this weekend. Vern took today off and we had a nice relaxing day. Looks like we will probably have a busy week this week. Raquel has a couple of Riding lessons. And with both of our birthdays coming up this weekend, there is some party planning to be done.
I was pleasantly surprised this week, when My Valentine LO of Vern, won the challenge for February over at Blush-n-Dusty Yahoo Group. (If you want to look at the page, please see post for Feb 10, 2008.) Thanks to everyone that voted for me. :)
One of our nieces, Andrea got married to Dan, last summer. I have lots of lovely pictures from their wedding and I decided it was time to start putting some pages together for her. They are expecting a baby in June, and we are so happy for them. Andrea & Dan's wedding was held outside and this is a beautiful shot of her father, walking her down the aisle.

Brian's Scrapyard

We have some beautiful weather, so Ayden and I have been outside and I haven't been doing as much scrapbooking. This is the matching page to the last one I did of Raquel. While we were walking around I took a few pictures of some of the more interesting things we saw.
