Just Another Blyth Bash

Wait, what happened to July?? August, I'm not ready for you yet!
Where has my summer gone? I guess we've been busy, and I really need to play catch up on my neglected little blog.

Well, a few weeks ago, we headed up to Sea-Town for cousin Josh and Susan's wedding. As usual, with any Blyth family reunion, it was a total blast. The kids got to play with their cousins and the adults spent most time drinking keg beer and sitting around the fire pit in Faline and Duncan's back yard. My kind of weekend! If only I had 3 extra hours to upload all of the photos I took...here are a few from the weekend.

Ava finally got to meet her cousin Acacia. These two were instant best friends.
