After eight years of marriage, Brendan and I really know how to party! Last year we celebrated with an awesome hike through Gatineau park with a small tub of ice cream. Our evening plans were curtailed though when Brendan got so many blackfly bites he had blood running freely down his legs, came down with a temperature and had to go to bed early.
This year Brendan was already sick with an ear infection and a bad cold that Elizabeth may be picking up, so we decided we needed to do something a bit less strenous. We celebrated by taking Elizabeth to Home Depot for the first time. We've decided that a new deck is probably in order after our stairs collapsed and a visitor innocently asked us whether the latest gap in our railing occurred as a result of someone falling through.
