Our Summer Vacation: Aboiteau Beach

Though the weather was cloudy and the forecast was rainy, we decided to keep our plans and head out to the beach while we were on vacation in New Brunswick. Our family, plus my husbands’s cousin and her family, my husband’s aunt and her friend and friend’s two grandchildren – 12 people in total – all headed out to Aboiteau Beach. This was our first time to Aboiteau Beach and the consensus was that we will happily return! There was a reasonable fee of $7 to park for the day, and we were able Read more […]

Our Summer Vacation: The Hopewell Rocks

Our first day trip on our summer vacation in New Brunswick was to visit the Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy. Neither my husband nor myself have ever been before and our big goal on this trip was to do as much outdoor-exploring type activities with the girls as possible (in between visiting with friends and family, of course) so it sounded like a great way to spend a day! We checked the tide tables but unfortunately low tide was either too early (just after 6 am) or too late (around Read more […]

Our Summer Vacation: Sussex, New Brunswick

I put my travelling with kids survival guide to the test last week when we drove from Ottawa to Sussex, New Brunswick to spend a week with my husband’s extended family! With upwards of 10 stops on the way there (perhaps potty training the 2 year old three weeks before we left wasn’t my brightest idea; on the upside not dealing with diapers while on vacation for the first time in FOUR YEARS was awesome!), it took us about 13.5 hours to make the drive. We did a few day trips to different parts Read more […]

Wordless Wednesday – Agriculture Museum

On Sunday we braved the incredible heat and spent the afternoon at the Canada Agriculture Museum with our good friends, Amy of Splendid Events and her husband Michael. Since it was so hot, we practically had the entire farm to ourselves! The girls had a great time showing Amy and Michael around; we have a membership so we’re regulars and they felt so special acting as tour guides. After visiting all of the animals, learning some ‘life lessons’ from Michael such as ‘pretty animals are usually Read more […]
