Yesterday Gone & Today's Family Reunion

It has been a busy couple of days for both Rob and I, but then every day is usually busy one way or another for us.  Here it is with today almost gone with yesterday behind and today's Masterson Family Reunion now behind us again until next Year.

Rob and I had been over Meaford way to pick up our new Australian Shepherd Female Puppy, Portia, at 8 am.  She fit right in when we got her home like she was meant to be.

Our Paul, Liz, Josh, Chloe and Briar arrived in time for Dinner.  Aiden and Connor were not able to be with us this weekend, however we will have them the last week of August ... HOORAY !

After Dinner, after picking up our neighbour Pari, we headed on up to the Berford Lake Park for a bit.

The girls had fun, and Portia was getting LOTS of attention.

Paul & Josh through a line in the Lake.

The boys were not having any luck in the fishing department, so we thought we would head over to the Government Dock at Colpoy's Bay.

No fishing luck there either, however we had fun and Briar did with taking a few photos once she had figured out the camera.

Was the August Moon not spectacular last night ?  I absolutely loved it.

This morning we were all up very early as we were picking up my Mom from the Nursing Home at 10 am then heading down to the Masterson Family Reunion in Southampton.

Before we loaded up Portia and the girls in our vehicle, Josh had a little down time with Portia.

Not a really big turnout this Year, but just the same the company was wonderful & the food always excellent !

After the Pot Luck Lunch there were games for ALL ages, as Cousin Troy was enjoying the Bubbles, and new friends were also made.

Teams were made up and more fun was had by everyone who was game for water balloons.

It is always great to see everyone from one year to the next.  My father's family was a large family so there had been lots of first cousin growing up or getting together when they came back to Southampton to visit Grandma & Grandpa Masterson.

With Rob not getting in until 3:30 am, and back out at 6 am this morning, and I busy preparing and having family fun with the kids, we are pretty much both "done like dinner" right now.

Hopefully little Portia will sleep like she did last night from 9 pm til 6 am, and Rob and I will get a good night's rest this evening, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. Portia's such a cutie pie!

    We have a large family as well, and a yearly family reunion at one of the larger properties in the countryside. I didn't get to go this year, unfortunately.

  2. shame everyone couldn't make it. Great news about having the boys the last week of August though.......


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
