Cutie patootie

Tonight our friends Marie-Emmanuelle and Patrick were driving by on the highway, so they pulled off and met up with us at Bourdeau's Restaurant (excellent poutine!) in Lancaster. And they brought....



...the world's cutest godson! I haven't seen Ben since January. He is growing like the proverbial weed.



Auntie Natalie is a little whacky sometimes, Ben.



Proud papa, proud godpapa and the happiest baby I have ever known!


Ben sampled my finger but was dinstinctly unimpressed!



He was a big hit with the staff at Bourdeau's. I really like them down there. They are so friendly and welcoming.



I think Marie-Emmanuelle is the most relaxed Maman I have ever met.



Little...


cutie....


...patootie!

Ben is so relaxed and happy every time we see him. You just know his parents are doing a fantastic job with him. It was so nice to get to spend a couple of hours with him this evening.



And on the drive home, the crescent moon and Venus were very pretty in the evening sky!

  6. These are great photos, Natalie. He would have me feeling pretty happy, too. He is so cute. I'm off for breakfast with Riley this morning. We get together once a week for our breakfast and book-store date. Gorgeous sky last night. Deb

    1. THey were passing by on the 401 and gave us a call, so it worked out well They live about two hours away from us, which isn't bad but I'd like to visit them more often than we do. :)

    1. I think he preferred the poutine gravy. His Maman wants to make sure he gets enough germs in him. I had at least washed my hands recently!

    Want to see some ducks all dressed up? I saw this article and thought of you and your ducks. Cute!
