Lauren and Donna came to visit Ottawa. We went to parliament hill, the History museum and the aviation museum, as well as skating at the rink of dreams since the canal was closed (too snowy!). Uncle Dave, Karen, Xander, Isabelle and Theo, Grandma and Grandpa H, Heather and Andre, Uncle Mark and Grandma J all came for a roast beast (beef) feast complete with gf Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, squash roast and salad. Black forest cake for dessert. I even managed Janice-safe Yorkshire pudding.
The older four kids all slept together in the basement, which I'm told was the "bestest part". Well, that and playing with cousins, which is always popular.
