Yesterday we took a really lovely trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Our friends, Mel and Stephen, live there with their daughter, Eleanor. Mel is an actress in the Shaw Festival, so we popped down for a visit during the day. When we arrived, the kids went upstairs to Eleanor's bedroom. The girls were completely besotted with "the big girl", and Eleanor was happy to have two little minions who were content to do as she said.
Mel poked around in the fridge, and in ten minutes had set out the most beautiful spread of food, straight out of Martha Stewart:

One of my favourite moments was looking over and seeing Eleanor teaching Audrey how to make a fishy face:
Mel and I met in 2002, doing Anything Goes. Since then we have been wonderful friends, and although we don't see each other as much as we'd like, we have a blast when we do manage to get in the same room:

I knew the light was perfect to do a few shots of Mel and Stephen.
Stephen being a goofball:
Thanks for a great day, guys!
