Sunday, August 2, 2009 - Trenton

Today was a big driving day. We had to wake Becca up at 9am (the bathroom is working great!) so that we could all be in the car by 10am. After rearranging car seats so Dianne could fit back there with the girls, getting gas and a Starbucks treat, we were off to Trenton to visit Dean’s Aunt Ella MacDonald and cousin Karin Mouris. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Halifax and unfortunately Becca got the sun in her eyes and then wouldn’t go back to sleep and kept fussing.

We arrived around noon and had a great cool lunch of ham and potato salad etc. Bella was getting a bit rambunctious so she went for a few walks outside with Dean and Dianne to burn off some energy. We took pictures, drew pictures, looked at pictures, and then it was time to head back home so we all piled into the car. Dean did a great job driving while the rest of us caught a nap. Upon arriving back to the apartment we went into the pool too cool off and refresh from our naps.

Bella had her infamous “mac and cheese” however the rest of us were treated to a feast of scallops. I couldn’t believe it. Dianne paid about $15 for the scallops and we would have paid at least $50 for back in Calgary. We waited until Becca went to bed so that we could really enjoy them. We had also picked up a nice Merlot at the local wine store and we enjoyed that.

Dean and I both headed to bed early to enjoy our books. Since Becca has been sleeping in the bathroom, it has been really easy for us to read and not worry about waking her up.
