Cabot Beach Provincial Park

We decided to go camping for Labor Day weekend! About a day or so before leaving, our good friend Maia who is now living on the East Coast with her family texted us asking what we would be doing over the long weekend. We told her we would be camping, and she asked if her and her family could join us. Well of course, the more the merrier! Haig was off at 1:00 on Friday afternoon so we drove up to Summerside first to visit the Holman's Ice Cream Parlor. Their homemade ice cream is a must try, so delicious and tastes so real. Then we headed north towards Kensington and then Cabot Beach Provincial Park.

Haig and I set up our campsite and then we took a drive around the local area. We came across a small golf course called Darnley Greens. Haig's clubs were in the trunk and he couldn't pass up the $13.50 nine hole fee. It didn't take us very long to play the round and it was a lot of fun to see him play this course. When we arrived back at the campsite we started to get dinner ready when Maia, Preston, Georgia and Ruby arrived.  They set up camp and we enjoyed a campfire into the evening.

In the morning we made some breakfast and then we took the boys to play golf at Red Sands in Clinton. We watched them for a little bit and then us girls went to play at a park in Kensington. We headed back to the campground in the early afternoon and the boys met us there shortly after. We took a trip down to the beach and also a short trip into Malpeque and back to Kensington to pick up a couple more groceries for the evening. We had a great fire that night after finding some better firewood. My poor husband almost burnt his hand after lighting 10 sparklers at once. We talked with Maia and Preston and shared funny stories about our lives. I wish we could hang out with them all the time.

On Sunday morning we woke up to find out that the Cook family was on their way home after a rough night of sleep with the girls. Haig and I took our time getting ready and made our way back into town for him to work at noon time. I am so glad we were able to go camping this summer, it almost didn't happen. I will make it happen earlier next summer. If anyone has any tips for camping with a baby, let me know!
