Friday we had the opportunity to go with the Cochran family to Prince Edward Island. I've never been a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables (although I enjoy watching it every few years), but all summer I have been excitedly waiting for our chance to go to PEI. The day turned out to be a wonderful day for going, and the children were relatively cooperative.
We arrived at the island at about 11:00 so we began with a picnic at Avenlea Village. After lunch we spent a few hours walking around the village. The village is a recreation/memorial to Anne, and Lucy Maud Montgomery. I enjoyed learning that Montgomery was also a photographer. They had a photo museum where we were able to see her photography. We also went to the Anne Shirley Photo Studio, where we were able to dress up in old fashion clothes and take pictures (with our own camaras). It was great to be able to take these pictures without having to pay an exorberant price for them.
With school starting here in Moncton tomorrow, I thought this picture was appropriate. You can see both Lydia and Kara are eager to learn.
