Oh Canada...

 I'm back in East Tennessee 
after spending (too short) five days in Canada
with my son and his family.
As those of you that have been following and reading my blog
may remember,
both of us have been through
some very difficult life situations
and it felt soooo good to see him again!
And my little darling boy,
my sweet grandson...gosh!, had I missed him!
And finally
I got to meet my daughter-in-law,
and she really is everything I expected!
A wonderful cook,
and a lovely person and wife and mom.
You might remember her from her blog,
now with a very nice new format. 
I also got to meet her mother, a sweet lady, I should say.
We deliberately planned this trip
to happen at the same time for both of us 
so we could meet and spend some time with the kids and grand baby
before they move to Europe
(which will happen a week from today).
As you can easily imagine,
it felt very good
but it also felt like time just flew by...
I had been in Canada before with J, my husband,
when K (grandson) was born,
almost 11 years ago.
Those are very sweet and precious memories,
and I am so thankful
to be able to have them.
Before I let you all go for now
I would like to wish you 
a wonderful Easter Sunday! 
Also, if you'd like to see it,
I'm sharing some pics 
from this trip of mine.
The Japanese Canadian Cultural Center

The Ontario Science Center

Royal Ontario Museum


Toronto Zoo,
wonderful, enormous space!
We visited the Tundra Trek,
the African Savanna, the Rain Forest
and the Great Barrier Reef, amongst others.


Some buildings in Toronto

Enjoy the rest of this day
and I'll see you all later!
