Family Photos Alert : Easter Weekend with my Son
Lens: Pentax FA 50mm f/1.7 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: South Algonquin, Ontario 
Posted By: tessfully, 04-08-2013, 05:10 AM

Norman went to Alberta to visit his grandson and my son came up from Niagara Falls to visit me. We had a great time. Here is a photo journal of our weekend.


This is my son Rick. He is 29 and works in IT for the Provincial Government. He grew up in the country and canoed since he was born, but turned into a total city guy.





We went for many dog walks...




...received many dog kisses (I got Dreamer when Rick was15... they were inseparable till Rick left for University.)








Misty had a "thing" for Rick.






We decided instead of Turkey we'd make 2 home-made lasagnes so he could take one home.


The goods...



Prep











While the sauce cooked we played with the dogs...









Back to the kitchen, shredding cheese, cooking noodles...




Ready for the Oven




Voila








Time to eat





Time to say goodbye

A great record of the weekend, certainly looks like the dogs had fun too.

This B&W image for me is the most memorable and sticks in my mind for it's almost ghost like qualities, a cracking image, I'd be very pleased if it were mine, well done.

I agree on the B&W Tess. Great looking young man too. The lasagne looks great but I'm a little concerned about putting cheddar cheese in it. The Italians are probably turning in their graves about now.

What? Your son is 29? But you only look to be about 35 Tess. How is this possible?

Thanks Kerrowdown! The black and white was an accident that turned out kinda cool.

Thank you Susan! Re: Cheddar... I have had plenty of lectures about it, but I just agree and say good thing this is a Johnston lasagne!!

A fun series, Tess. I love visits with my Daughter who currently (along with her husband) is a postdoc at Stanford and lives in Mountain View, CA. She was with us for a short visit last week, and I always miss her when she returns to CA. We also enjoy our visits to her neck of the woods (I love the people in the Bay Area), but that will soon change. She just accepted a tenure-track assistant professorship state university in Massachusetts, so we'll be making frequent visits to the other side of the country henceforth. My wife and I lived in the Boston area during the early '70s, so we know our way around New England.

Jer that is just wonderful! Sounds like you are as proud of your daughter as I am of my son I went though my postdoc so I know how tough it is and how few tenure-track jobs there are, and even when one comes up the competition is a killer. Your daughter must be very bright and dedicated. Thank you for sharing!

Great! I know exactly how it feels to have a daughter how is in the education/tenure track. She made it a few years back. Talk about a Daddy's high!
