Bananas

A weekend of weather in the mid-20s (celcius), ice-cream, parks, playgrounds, Easter egg hunt, movies, games, conversation and a visit to  Jardin Botanique de Montréal with my family. A perfect long weekend…

I love that the botanical garden has real banana and papaya trees and mini-tropical waterfalls. The perfect sites to visit as summer arrives in Montreal.

waiting, waiting, waiting…

family arriving, any minute, my daughter with her husband and grandaughter in tow. Airplane was supposed to land 11 minutes ago, they were to call when they landed, and I guess they’re stumbling off plane, heading to baggage…

why am I not there to greet them? No car, of course! It hardly makes sense for me to cab it out there and then we all cab it back again, though right now as I wait, wait, wait, I’m wishing I had because then I’d see little Morgan all that much sooner! Isn’t she a cutie?

And on Friday, we’ll be joined by another next-generation Roy ….

and on Sunday, we’ll all Skype with these cousins in balmy California…

Wish you were here, Maliyah, Aris, and Gabrielle!
