While I'm editing photos from my DSLR, I thought I would share all of the Instagrams from the trip. I uploaded them to Facebook as we went to keep our families in the loop, and I got a lot of comments when we returned on how all we seemed to be doing was eating. Haha.
Instead of going day by day I broke my pics into a few collages. Firstly, sights and places! We really enjoyed staying in the heart of Charlottetown and enjoying the city sights, but we also ventured in our rental car to a few far off island places (and by far off I mean up to an hour away, everything is pretty close when you're on a small island). We took in Victoria by the Sea, a sweet little village with a chocolate factory/shop, Brackley beach and Basin Head beach, and Summerside.

We also enjoyed Brackley Beach, the Brackley Drive in, a Brewery Tour at the PEI Brewing Company and of course, a healthy dose of Magic (the card game).
I thought I would also include some pics I took of our suite in the Clark House. It's the 'carriage house' at the Fairholm Historic Inn. They've just recently built the new facility, which is more like a four suite apartment building, and they've done an amazing job decking it out with modern and luxurious furnishings. We really loved being so close to the history and charm of PEI, but having a beautiful modern home to retreat to.
And lastly, I was so pleased to receive lots of pictures and texts from family back home taking care of our wee ones. Nicks parents watched Lola and his aunt and uncle stayed at our house and watched Tommy. Lola obviously had a blast with her sister Molly and, man, it was heart breaking to leave her for work today! She was moping around the house like a lost puppy wishing she could play with her sister no doubt. They really love each other! While we were gone Molly taught Lola a little about the art of tree climbing, and Lola overcame her fear of putting her face under water and learned to bob for tennis balls. We hear Tommy occupied himself with knocking everything in the house over. Haha.
