Baby Love

We were so glad to be in the neighbourhood when our new baby nephew was born. He is the sweetest little thing and he shares my hubby's July 1st birthday, so he will always have fireworks (Canada Day) on his birthday.

The flooding continues up here. The Red River came up very high this spring with the spring melt, but didn't quite get high enough to enter my parents' buildings in the city. Water levels went down a little and my fisherman son was able to fish from the bank. But over the last week the water has come up over the banks again with run runoff from North Dakota apparently. It feels pretty special to be able to sit out on the back deck and have ducks and geese cruising past within reach, but it can't be too good for the trees...
