Growing Out On A Limb

Visiting Arichat

1 Comment

Last weekend we made a trip home to Arichat.  It was a rainy visit but we tried to make the most of it.  And it’s always nice to visit nanny and grampy, rain or no rain.  Our good camera is up and running again too, so there are lots of pictures.  A bit of withdrawal perhaps.

I don’t care how rainy it is, this little girl is always a ray of sunshine.  She sleeps well, she eats well, she is (almost) always pleasant.  Sunshine.  IMG_4679On Saturday, daddy and jason helped grampy put up a new shed.  We were going a little stir crazy inside so the kids and I caught a little break in the rain and went to Martinique provincial park on the island.  While Eleanor slept in the car, the boys and I explored nearby.  IMG_4686The boys can always find something to do on a rocky beach.  IMG_4688 Emery was pushing the limits of his rubber boots.  IMG_4693 IMG_4698 My favorite pic of the lot.  IMG_4701It didn’t take long for the boots and socks to get wet and even less time for the boys to take them off. IMG_4708 Brothers.IMG_4710 What is it with boys and throwing things into the water…IMG_4714 IMG_4716 My sweet Emery!IMG_4721 Not long after that, the rain started again.  Oliver complained as we ran for our coats, but I caught Emery doing this.  The different reactions ring true to their personalities!  IMG_4722 We stopped by Rocky Bay on the way home for a picture.  It’s beautiful in spite of the rainy haze.  IMG_4724Nanny hugs are pretty awesome!
