Eleven years ago we paddled into White Otter Castle with our first and only (at the time) child. Eleven years later, and on the day of his twelfth birthday, we are anxiously waiting for him to return from a trip to the same place – along with his next brother, Dad, and some friends.
A big birthday supper is cooking, a no-refined-sugar cake is waiting (Maple Walnut Cake), homemade cards and drawings are piling up from younger siblings, and I have no idea what time they are set to arrive. But when they do we will be ready to celebrate! Or sleeping.
Here are pictures from 2001 and most likely to follow, photos from 2012. Z took a camera. I can hardly wait to hear all the stories and see the photos.
