Holiday Weekend

We have been having a lovely holiday weekend.With some family visitors, it has been a great excuse to get out and do somethings with the family.

Last week Thursday we went to downtown Charlottetown and saw the Young Company show for the year at the Confederation Center. Since it is a free outdoor show, we had a picnic lunch during the show and it was very nice. Then, of course, we needed some Cows ice cream for dessert. It is so nice to eat some ice cream on water front.

Normally our church has a picnic at the beach on July 1st, Canada Day. However, the weather wasn't looking all that great, so the picnic was postponed to Monday.  There are lots of fun games and activities, we have lunch together and it is right on the beach! This year they had a contest for the most Canadian outfit or costume. Joash came up with a grand plan and spent sometime time writing and drawing. I helped him tape it to his clothes before we went to he picnic. And Joash won a prize for "most creative," so he was pretty pleased with his work.
Mataya wanted to join in too.
Happy Canada Day and Happy 4th of July!

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

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…

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"
