hello erin »

o canada. . .

This past weekend a family emergency took us to Canada. To the town of Oshawa; about an hour outside of Toronto- where my parents grew up. The passing of my babci (grandmother for those of you who don’t speak Polish), who lived a long and eventful 88 years was hard on all of us; but somehow being surrounded by family, friends, and the place where my family spent so many summers seemed right. And we managed to have a little bit of fun while we were up there.

Every summer since I can remember my parents carted all of us kids out to Oshawa to spend a little quality time with the Canadian relatives (yes, some kids got to travel to far off exotic places- while we visited “the shawa”- but we loved it).

who’s ready for lots and lots of boring family pictures (pretty sure everyone in my family just raised their hand).


look how cute my parents are. . .

and how well my brother and sister get along. . .

and how cute mike and i are. . .

yup. . still cute.

awe. . siblings.

siblings in birth order. . .


this is nicoles arch-nemisis. He and 30 of his buddies swooped in on her and knocked her sunglasses clear off her head. . . while we sat there laughing.


poutine = the greatest thing to come out of canada (besides the biebs of course). its fries, cheese, and gravy. and its D-licious.

everything in Oshawa is so so green. . . Shaun wanted to document all of it (for michelle, since she couldnt be there).

my dad and his baby brother. .

and i’ll end with another family picture. . . because we’re just all so cute .

    Sara - I LOVE THESE PICTURES!!!! And I especially love the terror of Nicole tensed up when Sean is carrying her (I can tell by her feet, of course.) And the picture of them holding you up – hilarious. These pictures are AMAZING, and I adore all of them.

    And the Disney family, of course.
