Ah, summertime. It's right around the corner. YIPES!!!!!!!! I haven't really done a whole lot of planning for our big vacation this summer -- yes, the flights are booked, and yes, my son's passport was applied for today (with expedite fees), but I need to get the rental car reserved, book various hotels for over a week and a half, reserve ferry tickets, double-check mileage on all the driving we'll be doing between cities, and on and on. We booked our flights a couple of months ago, and back then, I thought, oh, I have forever to plan the rest of the trip. Yeah, right. Fast-forward now to mid-May, and here I am, starting to panic a little.
But hey, let's not worry about all that. Wanna know where we are going? (Please keep in mind I am a "pack it in" kind of girl -- I was raised by parents who packed in as much excitement as possible during our trips growing up. There was no sleeping in, no relaxing (well, maybe a little) and just doing whatever all week. We got up as a family and "went" and "did" and "saw" all day every day of our vacations.)
In no particular order we will be going to...
Quebec City (image from a visitor's website)
Prince Edward Island (image from a Dallas news story)
Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (image from Flickr)

We chose these places to visit without even knowing that we would be visiting Quebec City during it's 400th anniversary (cool, huh?) and Prince Edward Island during the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables (even cooler)! Icing on the cake, don't you think?
Okay, enough daydreaming. There's a whole lot of things to be checked off my mile-long to-do list...
