We got back on Friday afternoon, but we have been so busy since that this is the first time I’ve been able to do up a vacation post.
As you know from my last post, it was raining, a lot, during our vacation. Probably 10 of the 14 days. But we still had fun. To fill the days, we took road trips to Huntsville to do a little shopping, to North Bay to go on a carousel and mini train and visit Nipissing where Matt did is B-Ed, and we took many drives, including one to Midlothian Ridge near Magnetawan. We also had a few friends over for dinner, and went to Huntsville to visit friends for dinner too. The rain was hard. It is a small cottage, and as Matt’s mom says, the cottage gets smaller and smaller as the days go on, especially when it is raining!
Alex did a lot of growing over the 2 weeks we were away. Seriously – we think he was in a growth spurt – he ate and ate and ate, and cried a lot too (not sure if that was the teething though or the growth spurt). The first week he had a constant runny nose and we think a sore mouth, but that didn’t stop him from motoring around! He motored so much that he walked out the door and didn’t notice the step… oops! That resulted in a pretty big raspberry on his forehead, poor little guy! He swam, he ran, he walked backwards, he went for boat rides and paddle boat rides, he played in the mud, he played in his new little water boat, he got bit by bugs, and he got spoiled lots! Alex also learned a few new words, some of which include: bubbles, hat, papa, and moo. Alex also go to enjoy his first Canada Day, his 14 month birthday, and we celebrated Alex being with us for 5 months!
It was kinda sad to leave this…
But I had to remember that it was mainly like this:
So here are a few pictures from the 2 weeks away, enjoy!
Happy Canada Day!
