This week in pictures: March Break and the arrival of Bella

If you’ve got a great new camera, it only makes sense to find something cute to take pictures of, right? And since I utterly lack adorable and patient photo subjects (not really), you can understand why I rushed out and got us a puppy, right? Cuz this week was all about two things: March Break and puppies.

In case you missed it, this is Bella:


And this was Bella’s first day with us:

There's a new girl in town!

I come by my love of dogs honestly, and Bella didn’t waste any time bonding with Granny and Papa Lou. Is this not a picture of doggy love? I think it’s my favourite of our first few days with Bella.

While the arrival of Bella pretty much torpedoed any out of the house activities we might have pursued in the last half of the March Break, we did manage to get out and have some fun before she joined us. The boys knew we were actively considering a new pet, and had been begging for a visit to the Ottawa Humane Society since they had been to a birthday party there earlier this year. So off we went to pet the kitties and look, just look, at the other animals. They didn’t have any young female dogs available, but there were three adorable baby Willies in one of the cat pens.

By the way, the birthday party at the Humane Society was excellent – this is definitely on our roster of ideas for the future!!

And we also paid a visit to one of our favourite March Break haunts, the Log Farm sugar bush off Cedarview.

My mother brought me these tulips last week when we all thought spring was actually on the way. (Clearly we were mistaken, it’s currently about -10C outside and apparently there’s 15 cm of snow in the forecast.) Anyway, I love how she brought them to me with a comment about knowing how much I’d enjoy taking pictures of them. She was right!


And way way way back to last weekend (seems like a month ago from here!) someone had a birthday party:

Tristan's birthday

Phew, considering we didn’t have anything formal planned beyond the birthday party, this was a hell of an exciting March Break!!
