Pre Wedding Celebrating

We are home in Canada for a little bit more than a week enjoying some time with our family. One of the main reason’s we came home again now when we are coming for Christmas and were already home in May is because our nephew is getting married!

Richard and Danielle’s wedding is on Saturday October 5th. Richard was ring bearer in our wedding when he was just two and a half and now it’s his turn. We just had to come home for this special day!

He was such a little cutie!!

Actually we would always LOVE to be able to attend all the the family events and weddings, now that all our kids are at that age…( Tim & Emily married last year, and Rachel and Gerald just got engaged as well as our son Andrew and Kristina) but living far away makes it so difficult sometimes.  We didn’t plan to come home in October. We tried to arrange it earlier in the year for October dates for Home Trip, and it wasn’t gonna work so we chose Christmas instead. BUT after we got to China we asked again, and with the week long holiday in China, this time we got the dates so that is why we are home! And really, when you think about it…I just couldn’t imagine sitting all the way across the pond while EVERYONE else in the Goode Family was home!

So TODAY is 1 week from the BIG Day and it’s time to let the Pre Wedding Celebrations begin!

For the Ladies…

A Wedding shower brunch at Danielle’s sister’s place this morning. Laura & I and David’s Mom scooted off to the city to join the party!

So much fun!!!

And For The Guys…

An afternoon of Paintball, dinner at Maxwell’s Plum and then a comedy club. David & his Dad didn’t go to paintball this afternoon but joined the fellas for dinner.

David obviously didn’t hear me when I said take a few pics. I know guys aren’t big in to pics at their parties, anyway… Sorry no pics!

I am sure it was a fun day for Richard and Danielle at their parties and NEXT Saturday…is the BIG day!!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
