Pictures as Promised

Ok.. as promised, here are some pictures from our weekend.
We had a great time. We showed up at our friends place at about 7:30 or so. The drive was good, only I thought I was getting a UTI because I had to pee so often and then when I would make Ange pull over at all the rest stops to let me, I would hardly go at all.
It turned out that I didn't have a UTI. Not sure what was up. I drank some organic cranberry juice just in case.
So, when we arrived, we dumped our bags in the front hall, totally unlike us, we usually put them in "our" room right away... but no. We must have been too excited to see our good friends to do that, and had to get right down to the hanging out and talking... We tried to stay up late, but it wasn't that successful. We went to bed around 1am. I guess we were all tired from our long days. When Angela and I finally got to "our" room, there was two chocolate bars and a card waiting for us on the bed. We have the most thoughtful friends in all the world.
The card was about mourning and loss etc. The commercial message in the card was beautiful, but what made me really cry, was the personal message they had written in. Again, I am so lucky to be so loved by my friends.

This is a picture of M, our good friend and the next one is Angela and I on our way to Leamington.

Once we were in Leamington, we were welcomed by my friends' family. They have to be some of the nicest people on earth. We hung around a while, then M and I went shopping for a few items, for the huge dinner that was planned for the holiday weekend.
We had a fantastic meal, and some wine, there was a plethera of desserts to choose from. Once the food was put away, we got prepared for the fireworks and a camp fire. It was fantastic. M and I ended up staying up until 4am that night because a freind of hers showed up just as we had all planned to go to bed. I joined the conversation with full intentions to just meet the fellow, and then go to bed, but the conversation was too good, and I got sucked right in. On my way down to the bedroom we were staying in, I ran into C (m's partner) who had decided that it wasn't possible to sleep in the same room as Angela and I because Angela snores too loud. I don't blame her, Angela does snore loud. I'm used to it.
Monday we packed up, and C and M drove us back to London, and Angela and I continued on our way home to St. Catharines.
But wait....
My story is not over. I saved the best part for last.
Saturday night we stayed in, had some dinner and some drinks and just sat around. We rented a couple of movies to watch and had a cozy night at home. Well M got talked into pulling out her "glamor shots" she had done when she was in high school. They were something else let me tell you. Gotta love glamor shots. But the best part was when C had had a little too much to drink, and decided to go upstairs, dress up, put on makeup and come back down to strut her stuff and show us her best glamor shot poses. I don't think I have laughed so much in my entire life. Here is glamorous C in all her glory. Simply Devine!
I just couldn't resist this picture of Cookie. she's so cute... caught with her tongue out.
