more pictures to show of us.

me, Mom, Andrew in 1979

My Friends, Donna, Julie, Me, Mom at my birthday 1993

Me, Cinderella, Mom in 2008.  We had dinner with Cinderella to celebrate all of our birthdays.  Since I turned 40 that year, and was in the hospital on my birthday, I chose to celebrate it in Disney.

Andrew, Mom, Me in 1974 at Algonquin Park in Ontario.  Richard was on the trip too, but I think he took the picture.  Aren't I funny waving to him?

My favorite picture of Mom and I.  We have the same smile in this picture.  Mom always said I was her carbon copy.  It's kind of the family joke.  When I was younger, my brothers would always say, you aren't mom when I tried to tell them what to do.

Me, Richard, Mom around 1996 at Christmas 

Mom in Woodsleigh in Prince Edward Island.  Mom and I had a blast going to the land of Anne of Green Gables, my favorite series and the birthplace of Lucy Maud Montgomery, my favorite author.  We had so much fun on our two week trip.  I had always hope we would go back, but someday I will.

Mom and I in Mexico in 2003.  We went on a cruise to three ports on the west side of Mexico.  It was a really good trip.  Our trips usually were fun as we had so much in common.  When we went on vacation together you never know what would happen.

I started going on vacations with Mom when I came home from the 4th or 5th trip I went on with my friends and cried.  Most of the vacations I went with my friends, I cried when I got home.  My Mom asked if I would consider going on vacation with her.  I said okay, very skeptically.  The first one we went on to the Wisconsin Dells and the House on the Rock.  Mom had been there before and really wanted me to see the house on the rock.  It was the coolest thing ever.  The house was actually built on a rock.  It had the most amazing rooms as they were filled with instruments that were played automatically by robot type things.  It was just awesome.  It was the beginning of me getting sick, so walking was a bit hard as we had to walk up hill through out the house.  We were gone for about 10 days and I didn't cry once.  It was great.  We had a wonderful time.  We laughed so much and just talked about everything.  There wasn't anything I couldn't tell her.  She kept all my confidences too.  She never told a soul about anything I said.

I have more pictures that have been found that need to be scanned.  I will start this weekend after my cousin leaves to go home.  I plan to do more next week while I finish the paperwork that needs to be finished too.  I plan to finish the paperwork on Sunday so that I can make an appointment for next week to get this all taken care of.

I hope you had a good day.
