We go waaaay back with this lovely family. They knew us before we even started dating, spending a summer together at Camp Q, and later at my church as youth leaders. Leanne and I have kept in touch sporatically over the years, and it has been the easiest thing to jump back into a friendship with her since our move to Victoria. They are the kind of friends that take your kids for the weekend (even though they have four of their own), that invite you over for delicious meals (I'm pretty sure they have a five loaves, two fishes thing going on in their house), that don't care if you're wearing makeup for your playdate, and that leave phone messages that make you giggle.
Needless to say, this session was a pleasure. We caught the last of our amazing extended summer, and timed the session so we would get the glowy golden light in Beacon Hill Park. The kids were amazingly well behaved, and I would like to think we had fun...right guys???
