Wedding Weekend 1

Well, the first of our two wedding this summer is over. Now that we are home and looking over our pictures, we quickly realized that having a 20 month old does not really help you to get a large amount of quality pictures. So, sorry for all of you just waiting to see the bride, you will have to wait a little longer because I currently do not have a single picture of her.

It was a fantastic weekend though. A bit crazy and full of things to do, but fun. Thursday the adults went river rafting which was a lot of fun. We were able to witness first hand the amazing strength of the tides in the Bay of Fundy. our boat was the only boat where almost everyone fell out. We proved that it is possible for the boat to be too full of water.

Friday was rehearsal and trying to get Joash to take a nap and get some sleep so he would be ready for the big show on Saturday. And Saturday was the wedding. 
 Here are some of the boys looking good in their outfits.
 The wedding location. This is called "The Peak" and it is Tiffany's favourite spot in the world. It was all trees last fall, but her family cleared the land, built a road and seeded grass. It turned out just lovely.
 Joash doing his job of taking the rings down and announcing the bride was coming.
All tired out after a big day. We are back at the hotel here and we took Joash out of the his car seat and started to take of his socks and shoes. He slept right though until we got to the diaper. A quick change and we got him into some pajama's and he was back to sleep in no time.

Now it is VBS next week and then we leave the following Wednesday for the next wedding. What a crazy summer!

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.
