This past weekend was a combination of relaxation, competition, celebrating new life and exploring a part of Nova Scotia that I have never experienced before.
Looking towards the Cabot Trail on the way to Sydney.
Anna's high school basketball team proceeded to the provincial competition which was taking place in Sydney, Cape Breton. I had never been to Cape Breton in the 27 years we have lived in Nova Scotia, so Andrew and I decided to go and cheer on the team and enjoy a relaxing weekend at a B&B. We booked 2 nights stay at Colby House and were pampered with a delicious breakfast for 2 mornings in a row.

It was the break I needed and the girls won their first game against the Cape Breton Bears which put them in position for a Bronze medal. The last game against Yarmouth was a hard battle, and they ended up in fourth place. They played extremely well and came home very tired. Very proud of the NKEC Titans!!

We also celebrated with Kathryn and Tim this weekend as they welcomed their second little girl into their family. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 9 oz. and they gave her the name Kathryn (Kate) Jane. We certainly take advantage of Skype and have been able to see Kate and talk to Kathryn. She is a very adorable, perfect little girl. We are so very blessed to have 4 beautiful granddaughters.

All in all, a weekend to remember - thankful for my wonderful family.
