She was hoping for some presents to "open." As our shopping has been limited to grocery stores, the odd Wal-mart, and lots and lots of souvenir shops, I hadn't really picked up much for her at all. I aksed her if it would be okay to "open" Wal-Mart doors for a little shopping trip and she readily agreed.
Upon leaving, she was equipped with a working, but designed-for-children, digital camera
Anna and Simone had picked up little things for Chloe in anticipation of her birthday, and these were now gifted as well. Armed with candy, a new slinky, a giant pencil (You probably have one too. You know what I mean, right? Those giant pencils only sold in souvenir shops that are too awkward to write with, and too big to fit into any pencil sharpener I've ever seen!), and various other "junk," she was set to enjoy her day.
Her day took her and the rest of us to Louisbourg National Historic Site. This is by far the most extensive site we've visited so far, in terms of displays and just plain building to visit. We were there from about 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. and decided we still needed more time. However, since the staff were eager to lock up, we thought we'd camp close by and come back tomorrow.
Chloe had been promised that she could choose a place to eat on her birthday, but there really wasn't much to choose from in the town of Louisbourg, so she agreed to having spaghetti and meatsauce and putting off her choice until we reached a town that had her restaurant of choice (most likely fast food!)
When registering at the campground, the owner made us aware of a concert happening just up the road at Louisbourg Playhouse
It was a full day. A very rich day!
