We just got back from our yearly visit to visit Kirk’s family in PEI. Except for the delays on the flight out there, we had a great trip.
We were supposed to fly out at 6:30pm, stay the night in Montreal, and then catch a plane to Charlottetown in the morning. But our flight out was delayed by almost 4 hours so we ended up arriving at about 3:30am. Luckily we were able to change our morning flight to the afternoon flight so we were able to get a few hours of sleep at the airport hotel before continuing on.
At the Montreal Airport, Kirk had to make the ultimate choice – Starbucks or Tim Hortons.
On Friday, we went to the gold cup and saucer parade. Cooper’s favorite was the dragon. Kirk’s favorite were the bagpipes.
Then afterwards, Evelyn and I went to the track to watch the horse races.
Kirk, Cooper and Papa went in Papa’s truck to deliver a load of mussels. Cooper took a nap in the cab of the truck.
That night we went to dinner and for ice cream by the waterfront.
Saturday everyone slept in – Cooper even slept until 10am.
Afterwards, we went to the exhibition. Cooper loved picking potatoes (not surprising since he loves playing in the dirt).
Sunday we went to the beach.
After the beach we had lunch and some ice cream. Happy boy with an ice cream face.
In the evening we went to Victoria Park to run Cooper down.
Monday we went to Sandspit where Cooper had an awesome time. He made a new friend and they spent the day going from ride to ride and just having the best time.
On Tuesday, Papa arranged for us to go for a ride on a mussel boat. It was so cool to see how they harvested mussels, and Cooper loved being on the boat.
Afterwards, we went up to the North Shore to have lunch.
Of course Cooper had to play in the sand.
Cooper playing with his favorite garbage truck toys.
On Wednesday, Cooper and I flew home.
Kirk stayed for another few days and enjoyed his extra time with his family.
