A great week

Robin and I are getting ready to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We've already had one surprise party this summer at my parents. Last weekend Emily stayed with the younger kids so that Robin and I could have a weekend away. We went up to the eastern shore of Nova Scotia which is a place neither one of us had been. We had great weather for most of it and had a nice relaxing time.

The area has several walking paths and so we chose one and set off. It was along the shore and we found some treasures along the way. Dumpster diving in Torbay. 

The wind was blowing but we had a great walk and saw some really interesting geologic features including a stretch of beach with smooth egg shaped rocks. 

On Monday my dad showed up for the night. He along with my aunt and cousin were in Cape Breton going around the Cabot Trail. So he spent the night with us before heading home. That was a nice treat. My mom sent up some books. Peter has been devouring the "Chicken Soup" books and was thrilled to get some more. He also enjoyed the paper airplane folding sheets and has tried quite a few of them.

Gaelle kind of monopolized Grampy and had him read to her.

Emily and Josh came over for supper so we had a nice time together.

Emily and Robin had some puppets sent to my parents so dad brought those up. So that brought some excitement and fun for all. Stay tuned to see how Robin, Peter and Emily will be using the puppets. There are big plans afoot!
