Busy Season

DSC00392DSC00419 Since the end of September, we've had lots going on.  First, on October 2nd, Abigail celebrated her 2nd birthday with friends and family.  We had visitors from both families, Gramma and Grampa MacDonald, DSC00397DSC00429Nana and Papa Deroche and other friends and their kids.  Sheena had the novel idea of having little gifts for everyone, which made for quite a fun and all inclusive party!  

DSC00456The Cape Breton MacDonalds also visited for the weekend of Abigail's birthday.   Besides the party, we had a couple of walks through the woods and on the trails nearby our house.DSC00492 DSC00496The leaves had just started turning colours at the time and the girls loved to explore the fall colours and different shades of fall.  

Last weekend, Kris and I met in the Memramcook area of southeastern New Brunswick for a little Thanksgiving weekend bike riding.  Specifically, we biked around the peninsula of the Beaumont area, which is surrounded by the Petticodiac and Memramcook Rivers.  We had a whole mix of riding during our 22 DSC00505DSC00506DSC00502kilometre day, from gravel road to technical up and downhill trails.  It was an interesting place to bike as one moment you were in the forest, the next you are a steep embankment away from fast flowing rivers into the Bay of Fundy.  It was our first time taking a trail from a book on mountain biking in Atlantic Canada

  This week, I took a vacation and Sheena and I spent the last three days DSC00512 painting up a storm (literally) in our house.  We finally had the chance after some long needed new house renos to put paint on our walls.  We have half the house done so far and half to go!  Wish us luck. (The wall colours in this photo had to be redone due to, well, the fact that they caused blindness!).
