On The Road Again .....

Anyone miss me? Likely not, but I miss you all and am now back in cyber land. I packed up the kiddies and headed off on our first most excellent road adventure. We hit the road on Wednesday morning and drove off to Cranbrook to have a visit with my aunt. It took us about 5 1/2 hours to get there due to two roadside stops to feed Masyn and to let Kaelen run around to burn off some steam. We had two days full of laughs, cuddles and the most excellent meals. Visiting with my aunt is always guaranteed good time.

Today we packed up and headed off to Nelson to visit my mom to which we arrived earlier this afternoon. I took the longer route to get here in order to let Kaelen experience his first ferry ride. And, that longer route did not disappoint. Our road trip today consisted of racing a very large moose down the highway (the moose won only because I didn't particularly want to try and tango with him), stopping for fallen trees (which Kaelen is convinced that a beaver was responsible for), looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (that resulted in a few tears because we could never find the end of that damn thing), riding a large yet very windy ferry (which Kaelen spent most of the time in the van because he was scared that the wind would blow him into the water) and lastly, crossing Nelson's signature landmark: the large orange bridge.

So now we are going to finish settling in and head off to bed early. Both kids decided that they did not want to sleep last night so Mommy is a little bushed. Cyber surfing for moi will be my main priority tomorrow morning over a cup of java. Hope that your lives have been just as exciting if not more than ours ......

Hey Allie,
Sorry I missed you before you left.
Have an awesome trip and hopefully some sleep, and give me a shout when you get back.
Travel Safe!
