Canada: The Drive Home

HOORAY!! This is the last Canada post!! Phew!!

The drive home wasn't too bad. The kids were well behaved . . . for the most part. The drive felt longer, cause we did it all in one day instead of breaking it up. We loved having Bones a.k.a Auntie Joni along. She was a lot of fun, and a lot of help with the kids. We miss her already!!

Towards the end of our rather long day in the car, even Curious George couldn't keep Tralee happy, so I had a few tricks up my sleeve. First I gave her some lip gloss to play with and told her to go to town. Boy did she ever! It kept her busy for a good 45 minutes.

After that, Jim kept opening up Tralee's window. That kept her happy for a good thirty minutes or so.

Then. . . the last twenty minutes of the trip is when absolutely nothing but getting out of the car would make Tralee happy. She had a minor melt down. Which woke up Hunter and he started screaming too. We had two unhappy kids for about twenty minutes. Then. . . WE WERE DONE!!!!

We picked Corky up at Aunt Michelle's where her oldest son, Mason watched her for us. Tralee was able to stretch her legs, I fed Hunter, and after hanging out there for a bit we traveled home.

We had so much fun in Canada, but it's good to be back!!
