A Quiet Day Today...

Today we slept in til about 8am and since we are all feeling kind of tired, we decided to stay here...As I mentioned yesterday, it's a nice, new hotel with very soft towels, nice big rooms, flat screen TV, nice-smelling soap/shampoo, a pool with a waterslide and a very nice breakfast bar included too.

Kevin and the girls went swimming this morning while I went over to Walmart...had to get a few things and some snacks. When I came back, we headed downtown to do the dreaded laundry...feels like I'm at home, except I don't have to go downtown to do laundry at home.

Keturah isn't feeling well today---she has an earache and had a stomachache off and on, so it's probably best we didn't travel at all.

We had lunch at Wendy's and stopped by the mall so I could get some children's Tyenol and Dimetapp for Keturah and then we headed back to the hotel. We rested for awhile and then went down swimming and relaxing in the hot-tub...it felt really good.

We went to Swiss Chalet for supper and came back and watched a couple episodes of CSI. Kevin and Keturah are down swimming again before bed.

We hope to get up early tomorrow and head toward Sydney on Cape Breton Island.

I thought I would share some of my favourite pictures of animals from Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park since I love animals so much!!!

Hey Susan!

Keeping up with your trip. Nice photos! Greg's family on his mother's side are from Sydney and Glace Bay, Cape Breton. We are hoping to visit next year so let us know how it went.

Kaden says hi too! I asked him the other day, "who are we visiting on the weekend?" and he said, "Susan!!" I then held to tell him "Ahh, nope...Opa!"

hi Everyone,
We are having a grand time...getting a little worried that we only have 2 days left to enjoy the East Coast. We are heading to Louisburg tomorrow and then the Cabot Trail on Sunday. We will head back to Halifax Sunday night as we fly out on Monday morning :-(...

Melissa---give Kaden a kiss for me! I miss you guys!!
