Mom and Dad Lee do Halifax!

Ok, so here you go with another super old post! Caleb's parents came out to Halifax to visit for a few days and we had so much fun! It gave us the chance to have a car, :) and also to do all the touristy things we wanted to do before we left. We had a blast and ate a ton..mainly fish and chips! Oh how I miss them!

Here we are out in Peggy's Cove. It's a lighthouse outside of Halifax that is pretty famous and photographed a ton. There are tons of signs telling you to stay off the dark rocks because people have been swept away by the ocean there! We stayed far away! We also learned the legend of Peggy, which is where it got it's name...pretty funny stuff. Peggys!

Caleb's Parents!
We also took a day trip out to PEI. It was a long drive, but it was totally worth it. We got to drive over a giant bridge to get there. I had no idea it existed! PEI was beautiful and I would recommend it as a vacation spot. They had adorable cottages all over that you can rent out during the summer.
Isn't Caleb beautiful?

Where we started our tour of all the Anne of Green Gables sites. We just had to. I believe the author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, lived here for a while.

On a PEI beach.

We did a lot of museums while they were in Halifax. This was the Museum of the Atlantic?

Driving a tug boat!

Beaver Tails! We had these a couple times while they were there. SOOOO Goood!
This was the harbour hopper tour. I wish we got a better picture of the vehicle we were on. it's an amphibious war vehicle that they used in Vietnam. Which means it goes on land and in water! So it does a tour around downtown Halifax and then takes you in the harbor. It was kind of freaky! I thought it was going to be way to heavy to float, but it did! It was quite loud though. There's a reason we look so sombre in this picture! Our impression of the Harbor Hopper explosion...ha.
Lobster Traps!

This picture makes me miss it! So beautiful.
We did get to the beach in Halifax before we left. We took our kids there a lot for boys and girls club and they loved the waves. But they stayed in the freezing cold water a little longer than I could handle! The water's cold, but we had hot weather so it was a great day.

I miss Halifax!!

Wilson Reunion

I realize I am totally behind in my posts, but better late than never right?
Over the August long weekend we took a flight to Calgary, and then a roadtrip down to Glacier National Park in Montana for the Wilson family reunion. We actually had a blast driving down there, because we usually only fly places now so driving through Montana was so much fun. It was so beautiful, the weather was great, and it was so much fun seeing everyone. We hit up the waterslides, went shopping, and played some fun games. Here are some pics of the trip.

I Love gophers! This was at Logan's Pass. These little guys would eat right out of your hand. So cute!

A melting glacier we found on the way home.

The view of Logan's Pass. We drove over it on the way home, mainly because Caleb had never driven it before. I hate doing it! It's beautiful, but so scary!! I get so nervous.

Best Burger Ever! Skye and Aaron told us about this place in Kalispell. It's called five guys, and it was delicious! Everything tastes homemade, and they give you so much food!

The adorable Ayla Brieann!

This little guy was in my parents shower at the cabin they were staying in. We put him outside and Caleb took some pictures of him. Stratton helped!

The two mountain goats sliding down the side of the hill. I think Caleb was down at the bottom in like 5 seconds. Not even kidding. He's crazy!

The Varty Party!

We can't wait for the next reunion. We had a blast!
