A Quick Check-In

First of all I want to thank everyone who sent messages yesterday.  It was so wonderful to know that so many friends were thinking of us.  We had a really nice day.  We spent it together as a family and enjoyed a full family supper with Mom, Dad and my sister (….and Dad paid, which made it even better!! 😉  )  Then last night we sat out on the deck until almost midnight.  Couldn’t have asked for better.

It’s hard to believe it’s almost the end of July already.  Mike is now on his 10 weeks parental leave and we are enjoying it immensely!  Last weekend we traveled down the province to Truro so we could attend a CPO Picnic.  All together there were about 30 people there and we had a great time.  Kelly posted pictures, so I won’t bother..lol.  We have a couple of other trips planned before the end of August :)!!!  The 1st of August we are heading to The Highlands of Cape Breton to take up residence in a cabin for 3 days.  Matthew really wanted to go camping this year, but Mama’s not that brave!!  So we all agreed that a cabin in “camping territory” is better than nothing! 😉 (Gotta love compromise!)

Then 6 days after we get home from there we are heading to New Brunswick for a while.  Mike has a lot of family in Oromocto and it’ll be their first time seeing Marcus.  Matthew absolutely LOVES the time we spend there.  There are huge big yards and lots of woods for him to roam.  So for four days we are all together in Oromocto and then……are you ready for this?? ……….. Tracey’s going on a road trip – SOLO!!!!!  I’m going to Ontario for a few days!!!  Other than visiting Ottawa with the school when I was in grade 12, I have never been to Ontario.  I am SO excited!!  I can’t even believe this is going to happen!  It’s going to work out perfectly.  Mike and the boys will still be in NB (with more helping hands around than Mike will know what to do with) and I’ll get a chance for a little “me” time.

This is the first summer we have had any time off together EVER and I dare say it’ll be close to another 17 years before we see it again, so we are all taking advantage of it.

I dare say I’l have some stories by the time the end of August rolls around, so stay tuned – oh and in between all that there may be a couple of more “Tracey and Mike” episodes too…lol

Until next time…
