What could be more summery than a family dinner on Canada Day?
My little cousin Sarah enjoys a hot dog, while my dog Xena supervises.
Xena is thrilled to have so much company. She shares a moment with my cousin Emily.
Our family usually has a family dinner once a month. But this year has gone by so quickly, none of us could believe we haven't had one since Christmas Day. My sister Michelle hangs out with our cousin Julianne, her husband Stephen, their daughter Laura and Auntie Noel.
Xena gets up close and personal with Stephen.
Uncle Charlie tells us about a TV project he's working on about an aboriginal healing circle and the continuing pain caused by the residential schools of decades past. My husband Brad, Julianne and Stephen listen in.
Brad and me, happily fed.
My sister Michelle and her sweetheart, Newt.
My cousin Charlie enjoys the cake.
Chatting in the kitchen - Laura, Julianne, Michelle, Charlie and his wife Heather.
My Mom - nothing makes her happier than putting on a family dinner.
Thanks, Sarah - great watering job!
