Vacation Part 3 - Far Away Friends

After a few days in Michigan, we headed out to Minnesota and Iowa to see some of our friends. We stayed with our best friends in Minnesota and had a great time.

On Saturday, we had lunch with the Buskers and I got to see my favorite five year old again. Both he and his sister thought Joash was really cool and he kept making faces at Joash and doing other things to get Joash to smile. It was great to see them again and get caught up on their lives and what was happening at school. Saturday evening one of Wilbert's roommates from college was married, so we saw many people that we haven't seen in a long time. Alas, I did not take any pictures since I was busy with a little boy. But the wedding was very nice and it was good to see so many people again.

Sunday we went to our old church in Edgerton and it was so much fun to see everyone. We were able to talk to just about everyone we wanted too, expect for one couple who was away for the weekend. There were four of us who were pregnant and all due around the same time at our church. We all had boys, and it was interesting to compare the boys. We stayed inside for the rest of Sunday because it was HOT outside. I know I have complained about the Island weather being cold, but I was so thankful for air conditioning. If you went outside your eyelids started to sweat. I am now enjoying the nice Island summer again with my windows open.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
