Our Trek Across the Country

Ok.... So maybe from Ontario to Newfoundland isn't even half way across the country, but still.. it's long, and with a 1 year old, it's REALLY long!

1st, we went to Kingston. Matt's parents, siblings, and many of our friends live in Kingston. So we spent 6 days there before the big trip. So, with a FULL mini van, we drove the 3 hours from Brampton to Kingston

IN Kingston, we saw Auntie Kristin (It's annoying that the picture is sideways!)

and Uncle Steve and Auntie Tanya! (Uncle steve is growing some weird facial hair, Mummy thinks he looks a little like Abe Lincoln)

Also, It was my birthday! S I got lots of presents! 

Here I am looking cute!


Kimmy came to visit us, and we went out to lunch, and to visit Noah at the cemetery.  It was the first time I got to 'walk' around there! I really wanted to sit on the mud, but mummy didn't want my dress to get all dirty and then the dirt get on my carseat!

Here is a Panoramic shot matt took of part of the baby section of the cemetery

and, here I am waiting for my lunch... not very patiently :) 

There were many more pictures taken while in Kingston, but most of the time, I took them on my Mother In Laws camera, or on another camera which we have yet to locate :) We had a great week! It was a nice way to spend Charlotte's birthday!


So, off we went! Van full, and Matt with a.. Mustache! He was finished work and it was 'movember', so he decided facial hair was the way to go.. as you'll see, it didn't take long for him to shave it off


here is me, on our trek


Charlotte did a lot of this .. sleeping! which was great! 

Pseudo Casey came along, Charlotte loves him!

going into the tunnel in Quebec

In the Tunnel

The first night, we stayed in Levis Quebec, just outside Quebec City. A cute little hotel. We woke up to this.......

We woke up to SNOW... and then we realized we didn't have a snow brush, so we found a Rona, and got one!

here is matt, with the new snowbrush

We crossed over into New Brunswick! 

Watch out for MOOSE!
In NewBrunswick we stayed at my Great Aunt Fay and Uncle Sam's house! it was great to spend time with them! We got a picture or two... on the camera which we have yet to locate!


In Nova Scotia, we visited Sheryl and Christian. .. Chris bought a bunch of seafood, including Oysters. I couldn't bring myself to try them raw, Matt and Chris did though! 


Charlotte had lots of fun at Sheryl and Chris' house!

ALong the way, we saw our moving truck!!! 
and a fun car carrier! with squished cars on it!

Matt, happy to be almost home, and facial hair free


Cape Breton, almost to the ferry!

Here is the ferry to Newfoundland!  

And.. believe it or not, we didn't get any pictures of our drive across Newfoundland. We were tired, and just wanted to get to St. John's. It was dark when we passed the St. John's city sign... but we are here, and we are loving it! 

Photos of our time thus far... to come!
