My brother and sister-in-law are off enjoying a March Break trip to Cuba, so Aly and Ava are spending the week with my parents. And what does that mean? A road trip to Halifax!

Caleb had been waiting for weeks for Greggy, Linda and his cousins and to come and stay with us at the glass house. He couldn't quite believe it when the big day finally arrived. We packed in as much family fun as we could handle - Peggy's Cove, Natural History Museum, restaurants, beachcombing, concerts, a candy store and visiting with our amazing neighbours Tom and Bev (here is how amazing Tom is -he built the glass house by hand!). Alan and I even managed to have one night away to celebrate his 30th birthday. The only sad moment was when the Greg, Linda and the girls dropped Cale off at daycare on Monday morning. Apparently, with his head hung low and his lower lip stuck out, he very, very slowly shuffled his feet down the hallway and into his classroom. Mom said it was a heartbreaking (but also hilarious) scene.

Cale is a lucky boy to have such wonderful cousins. I really hope he gets to spend some quality time with his other cousins soon. Hopefully there will be a big reunion this summer...maybe even at our NEW HOUSE! Details to come once the final papers are signed!!

Peggy's Cove with Linda
Best beach finds - seaglass, pottery and a clay pipe fragment (likely made in the UK the 1800's). I've been searching for this particular beach treasure for years!

The girls were sad to leave Cale too. What a busy great time we all had!
