Well here we are, just about one week on in our holiday back in Canada. It’s the first time in 6 years that I’ve been back home, and the first time ever for Emma to get over here. We’ve had a pretty good first week. Done a lot of shopping and a lot of driving. We arrived on Saturday May 29th and were met at the airport by my father, from there we went back to his place just outside of Kingston.
On the Sunday we went for a 90 min boat cruise around Kingston and Wolfe Island. Here’s a couple of photos from the boat with Emma and Lisa taking turns at the helm (before leaving port haha)
We’d stayed until Monday morning when we packed up the van and headed out for Burlington VT. We planned to stop here and shop, but clearly we made some wrong shopping choices as we didn’t find much in the way of bargains or much of any thing really. Here we are crossing the bridges at Cornwall Ontario heading for the US.
Here we are taking the ferry across Lake Champlain that separates New York state and Vermont.
After a good nights sleep, but a stupid early wake up for some reason (still a bit jet lagged I guess), we got an early start on the second leg of the journey to New Brunswick to see Nana Shirley and the family in that part of the country. We’re pretty well shopped out now I think 🙂 The girls have been spending money getting all kitted out for the wedding back in Kingston on the 14th of June. I still need a shirt and tie but other then that we’re all set haha
When we arrived in New Brunswick it was starting to rain, and it rained for the next couple days. Today we’ve had dry weather but it’s threatening to rain again for the next couple of days. Saturday (June 5th, our wedding anniversary) we’re hoping to get an early start to the day and get down to St Andrews for sights and seafood, Yuki is a seafood-a-holic if ever there was one. However, the weather forecast isn’t looking good for Saturday, so that might get pushed off until Monday.
Tonight we took the kids around to my cousin Gregg’s house to play with their 3 kids (Chanse, Dakota and Kendall), they were great and our girls had an awesome time playing with them. That Kendall is a real cutie. The kids had a great time running around and playing games. I hope their kids sleep as well as I hope ours sleep haha.
Like usual, all the photos from our trip will be on Flickr. They’ll all be in the Canada 2010 collection.
I’ll try to blog more as the trip goes, I’ve been time sharing the computer with Yuki so I don’t get to use it as much as I’d like 😉
