A few weeks ago now, I took a trip home to Ontario for a week before heading to Utah for my annual company meetup.

Highlights of my visit:

  • visiting my cat Sally who is staying with my sister Julie because we are only allowed one pet in this rental home that was provided by Jeff’s employer
  • spending time with Julie, having her take me shopping. It is still kinda weird that my little sister is all grown up and living on her own and has a full time job!
  • got a tour of Julie’s new condo building that she is soon moving into
  • had a girl’s night with my childhood pals Becky and Cathy with pizza
  • had pizza almost every day and ate at Mother’s Pizza with Dad and Julie
  • watched my nephew Eason’s skating practise
  • spent time with my niece and nephew
  • watched a lot of Blue Jays baseball with my brother, sister in law, and mother
  • attended my cousin Steven’s wedding at my old farm
  • spending time with my Grandma and my cousin Christine
  • meeting my cousin’s bird and catching up with Bernie & Dona
  • shopping with Mom and Grandma
  • seeing a 3D movie with Dad and Julie – The Martian – pretty good movie!
  • probably a bunch of other things that I am forgetting about

Here are a few photos, iPhone only, and completely out of order:
