On vacation!

We made it in one piece :)

Carson was an absolute dream on the car ride. We left around 5:40 am on Monday morning and made it to St. Stephen by 4pm our time. For an 11 hour car ride, he was quite good! He cried once, for about 5 minutes before he crashed. He didn't sleep that much (not like I was anticipating) but he was happy, chattering in the background and staring outside at the scenery. We stopped at my Grammie's house, had dinner, and then put Carson down. He slept for about 1/2 hour and then woke up for an hour, just really unhappy. This hadn't happened in months, but I guess it's the drive that finally got to him and he was so tired he just couldn't sleep. He finally crashed and slept till about 6 the next morning.

Tuesday morning we got up, had breakfast and then visited with my Grammie's good friends (and got a few books, Shirley founded the "Born to Read" program in NB and gave us the books they send out to babies in New Brunswick. A few of them we already had, but we got a few goodies!) and the hit the road. We made it to PEI around 5 and we are happy to be here.

As soon as I figure out how to download the pictures from my camera to Jeff's laptop, I'll post some. The tide was out last night so we walked out a bit and put Carson's feet in the water and sand and he quite liked it. I wish it was a bit warmer here so we could put him in the water (on the sandbar) and he would love it... we'll just have to wait and see what happens. It's sunny and about 24 today. I think Carson will be in a bit of shock of the cold water, he's used to Grandma's pool which is at 89 all the time :)

We went out for a run this morning, and now Jeff's trying to convince his mom to fry up the trout that Richard brought to him last night (I laughed and said if anyone brought me a bag of fish, I'd kill them!).
