Family Reunion in Belle River

July has been a pretty eventful month for Vin and me, I have all kinds of things to blog about. But it has also been a pretty busy work month, so it hasn't been too conducive to blogging. But before we finish out the month of July, I wanted to reflect back on our trip up to Belle River, Ontario earlier in the month. A family reunion was held at Vin's cousin Liz's house. This is the maternal side of Vin's family - Vin's Auntie Vera settled in Canada and we were happy to be included in the gathering. This was my first time meeting everyone other than Joanne, so forgive me if I make any mistakes naming all the family members! On the day itself, luckily we had name tags. :-)

We had a lovely time at Liz's place - it was a gorgeous sunny day and if we got too hot we could jump in the pool to cool off. Let's get to the pictures! Please mouse over the pictures for captions:

Thanks again for having us, Liz! We had a wonderful time, and if you are ever in Southwestern Ohio, do give us a call. :-)

Surprisingly, it is only about a 4-hour drive up to Ontario east of Detroit. Somehow I have it in my head that Canada is really far away, so given the relative ease of driving, we hope to see everyone again soon! Cheers!
