Cairns Family Holiday – Final Installment

Tue 26 Aug, 2008 at 4:11 pm 3 comments

Well I did promise I’d post this final post back on the weekend, but here it is – a little delayed …

The first two pictures are for Tom and Sylvia (Nanny and Grandad).

On our way to the cottage, we passed a sign for Bloomfield Gardens – note that it says they’re “Luxury Town Homes”

Who am I to disagree?

(Actually they don’t look as bad in the picture as they did by the side of the road – but they’re teensy tiny pre-fab houses) – not the Bloomfield Gardens the Cairns’ family is used to.

Here’s the view of the lake from our screened in porch (a major plus when you’re in the woods – no bugs!)

We got Luke his own high chair on our way to the cottage too – for my Dad’s sake – we got it at the Great Canadian Superstore in Buffalo, NY (a.k.a. W_l_a_t)

He looks a little stunned in that picture – but he really enjoyed it!

Surprisingly – in neither of the two places we stayed (the Ramada and the cottage) was there a bathtub! And this after we decided against taking Luke’s baby tub because “of course there will be a tub!” Anyways – at least there was a little wash basin we used for Luke:

Here’s another shot of the lake:

Here’s a photo of Luke in post-bath bliss:

Here’s a shot of Tim and Luke enjoying kangaroo for breakfast:

“Look at me – a big boy in a big chair!!”

So that was the Cairns’ family holiday – we had a wonderful time relaxing – enjoying the Falls, the wineries in NY, the moon light over the lake and having time just the three of us before work started up again for everyone (other than Luke)

    The pictures are wonderful! Thanks for the memories of Bloomfield Gardens. Actually I was that way this evening (Bloomfield Gardens, Belfast)!

    I loved Luke and his bath time. VERY SERIOUS BUSINESS!!!
