11 Years

Our 11th anniversary was last week and Wilbert and I were able to spend a good chunk of the day together away from the farm and it was wonderful.

We decided to head to Point Prim to have lunch at the Point Prim Chowder House. But, our meandering back road trip we over shot the point, but ended up at Roma at Three Rivers instead, which was just as nice. It is a nice historical site with a lovely view on the water front and a nice little cafe with soup and bread. So we had lunch there instead and had the tour of the historic site.

Costumes was part the tour. It was a very warm day and these clothes were very hot. So we were thankful we don't have to wear things like this any more.
 After our lunch and tour of Roma at Three Rivers, we did head to Point Prim and climb to the top of the lighthouse.

A great view and a nice climb. We also stopped at Hannah's Bottle Village on the Point Prim Road. We decided we will come back another time for a meal at the Chowder House.

Then we headed to Charlottetown. We found three geocaches in town, which is always fun. We had supper a little Italian restaurant that we had never been to before. After that we listened to the band playing on Victoria Row and then headed to the Charlottetown Festival's production of The Million Dollar Quartet at the Confederation Centre. A great show that we highly recommend. Of course, we had a dessert after that and headed home to where our kids were all nicely in bed after spending the day with Oma, Opa and Oom Jander.

It was a lovely anniversary!

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.
