Moncton Zoo & Confederation Bridge

On our way home from our weekend in Nova Scotia, we stopped in Moncton for the night and to do some fun things the next day. We stayed with our good friends Lynn and Mike Manley. It was so hot when we arrived in Moncton on Sunday evening. We got our things settled and went back out for some ice cream. I was very grateful for our CR-V because I don't think we would have survived the trip without air conditioning. I am also thankful to the Manley's for putting us in one of their spare rooms in the basement because it was so much cooler downstairs. Once we got the baby to bed, I took a shower so we could get up early the next day... just kidding we slept in late! We got our stuff together and had some breakfast before getting out the door. 

Our first stop on Monday morning was Magnetic Hill Zoo. It was Haig's first time at this zoo, and of course baby Haig's first time at a zoo too ;) We didn't actually stay at the zoo for very long. We walked around once and then the baby was ready for a nap. We looked around a little bit more before the noon-time sun starting to feel pretty warm and then we left. Our next stop was at Cabela's. I think we had intentions on getting some camping gear, but we decided not to because we most likely will not be camping this summer with the little one. From there we made our way to the Champlain Mall to shop for a little while longer and enjoy the air conditioning before our drive home. We made one stop on the way home at the Confederation Bride for some pictures. Three different people offered to take a picture of our whole family but we politely declined. I just wish my husband could start taking some better pictures of me with the baby since I actually try to take good pictures of him and the baby, *eye roll. It was a lovely day and I am always so happy to spend quality time with my boys.

Haig Arthur & Jack Edward

We had such a fun week with our family and friends in Nova Scotia preparing for Victoria and Eli's wedding. It was a great week! We had wonderful weather and we got lots of work done and time left over for lots of playing. Our trip started off kind of crazy, we went wedding dress shopping with Auntie Victoria. This was my first time wedding dress shopping with someone and it was such an honor to be with this lovely girl. We also went to the pool another afternoon with Jack and Rachel and Haig loved it! He doesn't like the heat very much so it was nice to cool down. We had lunch one day with our friends Brittany, Karen, and her daughter Olivia. We went to Jack Astor's and it was yummy. On Friday baby and I had a nice quiet day to ourselves and we made supper for the family when the arrived home from some wedding preparations. We were SO Happy to see daddy when he came up on Saturday. I am grateful that my parents brought him up with them and they went to the temple. I am also thankful that I was able to have our CR-V in Nova Scotia all week. My husband missed the baby and the car more than he probably missed me hahaha....Then the grand finale, our family had a lovely day celebrating Eli and Victoria Smith on Saturday July 15th 2017. We are so blessed that our family just keeps on growing! This wedding has been a long time coming and I am so glad Eli is now officially a part of our family. We hope all the best for them on this new adventure.

yellow door

One of my favorite things is when someone offers to take nice pictures of you and your friends & family. Nancy (my best friend's mom) loves to take pictures. We visited with her and Casey one Sunday afternoon and she was so excited to take some pictures of us in front of her neighbor's yellow shed door. It was also her first time meeting the baby, but he slept the whole time! It was a little funny but we will have to go back for another visit sometime when he his more awake and lively. It is always nice to visit with sweet friends. Casey and her boyfriend Cody bought a house and will be moving in later this summer. I am really excited for them, they are adulting so hard right now ;)
