We have been super busy lately with a combination of being horribly lazy (lots of rain days around here) and trying to pull ourselves and our gear together for the big Guiding Camp that starts on Sunday. Into this enter... Continue reading

We were just so delighted to see you, though I was a little disappointed that the kids don't remember you. We'll have to tell our stories better! I so look forward to meeting your adorable children one day (soon!) and having a nice long visit.

One of our summer bucket list items is "swim in the ocean", and Mom and Terry love St. Andrews as much as we do, so, even though they'd made a day trip there on their own already, we all piled... Continue reading

Monday of Mom and Terry's visit dawned just as hot and nasty (or was it worse?) as the day before. (In fact, I had gotten up in the middle of the night to search out a window fan from the... Continue reading

On the Sunday of our week-long visit with Mom and Terry we had a loose plan to check out King's Landing and have some fun time travelling, but we woke up to some crazy high temperatures and humidity and no... Continue reading

Our quest for local waterfalls continues! Mom said that she wanted to help us cross some items off of our list when she visited, so we gathered her and Terry and our friend Cindy and drove up to the Maliseet... Continue reading

It has become our family tradition in the past few years to spend Canada Day (July 1st) in beautiful Saint Andrew's by the Sea. It's such a beautiful seaside town, so warm and inviting to tourists, and they really do... Continue reading
