We have been having great fun this week as our two week holiday continues!
Yesterday we went to the Aviation Museum where we dodged some rain here and there but managed some fun outside on the play structures. The boys themselves aren’t too interested in the airplanes here but it provides myself with some fun as I love looking at some flying history. I was a bit surprised at the juggling of the exhibits in the museum as they have moved the helicopters from the front to the back. While no big deal when I went to go see the newly moved helicopters the whole back part of the museum is being re-worked for a new display. The weird part is that they took down the elevated nose section of the Avro Arrow (the only one that exists I believe)! Hopefully they will put it back up in a prominent display once again where it deservedly should be … Silly Diefenbaker …. *sigh* Oh yah … they do have a new helicopter that was recently just decommissioned from the Air Force … a Labrador helicopter which is kind of cool in the sense that it was an ancient relic of Canada’s previous military might but yet was just retired from active service. Boy do we need some serious new hardware!

I loved these things when I was little too! Go plastic parachute guy Go!!
Today we went to Lac Philippe for some beach action! The lake was really nice and warm with not too many people but I am sure that will change this weekend given that it is a long weekend. We are planning on trying to go back on Monday as it isn’t a holiday in the La Belle Province. Carter and Connor had some great fun in the lake making sand castles and chasing seagulls. (Carter was obsessed with running after the birds!)

We then went to an ice cream store in Old Chelsea as a treat. Connor had great fun … Carter did eventually wake up to get some chocolate into his system. We seem to continually keep interrupting his sleep schedule during our holiday. Oh well …. we will learn eventually!
