Yesterday we did some running around during the day (I picked up the new Harry Potter book!) and we headed out to a housewarming party in the evening. Our friends Jean-Michel and Laurence bought a duplex with Jean-Michel's brother and they moved in last month. They did an enormous amount of work - cleaning, painting and laying their own floating hardwood floor! We were impressed to no end. We had a good time catching up with them and hanging out on their lovely backyard patio. The weather yesterday was PERFECT - clear, breezy, maybe 25 degrees. Today is the same so we are thinking that we might have to stop working on the baby room project and do something nice outside! We'll see...
Here are some photos from last night:
The sun was setting through the windows of this nearby Orthodox church so Stéphane took this photo from the patio.
Us with the proud homeowners!
This is Isabel - she and her husband Sylvain are expecting a baby girl on October 6th! We haven't seen them since we found out that they are also pregnant, so I was super excited to chat with Isabel and compare notes. They haven't finished their baby room either (phew!) but since they got married only two weeks ago (congratulations!) they've had a few other things to think about... Note that Isabel has a gorgeous round belly that I envy. I know no two bellies are alike, but I wish mine would get with the program and start to look like that... If that's all I have to complain about, that's pretty good!
Off to pack now for a my NYC-Vancouver pre-baby tour getting underway tomorrow... Can't wait to see everybody!
