For a change, my husband is actually able to take some vacation time this summer! We’re very excited to be planning a trip to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to visit with his extended family. Since we’ve been living across the country from our families for the past five years, we haven’t been able to make it East out to see his aunts, uncles, cousins and Gram; our vacations were always to Ontario to see our parents and brothers (and then our sister in law and niece!). Now that we live within driving distance of our immediate families, we can use his vacation time for a trip out East.
This will be my first trip to the Maritimes and I am so looking forward to seafood and beaches and new sights! I’m not looking forward to a 13+ hour drive with a 14 month old, but at least we’ve got plenty of room in the minivan for all of the stuff that we’ll need to keep her happy and occupied.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what we should absolutely not miss while we’re out there? We’ll be in the Halifax area and between St John and Moncton and I’d love any and all suggestions!
