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!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

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.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
