It's not everyday that I tell Chloe to put on her boots and go jump in that puddle. She kind of looked at me like maybe I had lost my mind. It had rained the night before and as usual there was a giant puddle in our driveway. She had a great time and I got some nice shots.

Patrick's annual family reunion was on Saturday. Unlike the past two years it was a beautiful hot day and we were there until the wee hours of the morning. Chloe made a new friend, Marie-Claude, who is about 5 or 6 years older than she is. She followed that poor girl around the whole day. At one point she lost her and came to me crying. Together we went in search of her new friend and when we found her Chloe made me stop so that she could wipe her face on my shirt. She did not want her new friend to think she was a baby because she had been crying. It was like being hit by a Mack truck because it showed me exactly how much she has grown up. It seem she finds a way to break my heart every day. I love that kid so much!

I took Chloe and Max to the park around Fort Chambly on Friday. The day was absolutly beautiful and I was hoping to get some great photos but I messed up the settings on my camera and only came home with a few good ones. It was still a great day. Chloe loves going on picnics and we had a great time spending the day together playing. We visited the fort and checked out the rapids on the Richelieu river. Chloe met a little squirrel who was not the least bit afraid and would eat out of our hands. I think she would have give him her entire lunch if I would have let her.

We took a short trip to Mont Tremblant this past weekend. We had a great weekend except for a little rain. The view from the chalet was beautiful and Chloe had an especially good time when we took the kids to a small amusement park. She got to meet Cinderella and Snow White who are two of her most favorite princesses.
