We are Home

We left on our Great Canadian Adventure before the end of June. We packed three little girls & a lot of stuff into the mini van. We drove 6 hours which took us 8 hours with food/pee breaks & gas fill up required to get to within 2 hours of our final destination. We arrived at the hotel at midnight with 3 little TIRED girls, no play pen in room & they weren't sure if they'd be able to find us one. Finally at 1230 they found a place for baby to safely sleep!

The girls woke up bright & early excited to finish their trip & see Grandparents! We had a quick breakfast & back in the van we went & finished our 2 hour trip.
We decided to surprise Nana & Papa with the entire trip they had NO CLUE we were coming. So all the way there Hubby & his bro were in communication via blackberry to determine a meeting place to do the big surprise.

We get back to our home town & the first place we go is the Mall & surprise Nana & Papa & introduce them & Uncle/Auntie to the baby! All was good. I'm still shocked that the first place I go when going back to my home town is the mall. Maybe this is because I spent SOOO much time there growing up it's like a 2nd home!

The week went by quickly & the girls got LOTS of love from all their aunts/uncles. We went to a BBQ at grandma's & surprise on us.. Auntie & Boyfriend Uncle were there to visit their nieces. It was great seeing my sister & her hubby & I was even more shocked that they drove 7 hours on the motorcycle to see the little girls.

The drive home was a straight drive home through RAIN RAIN RAIN! It took us 10 hours with all our stops & three TIRED little girls.
Now it's back to reality, working for me, laundry & house cleaning. I'm excited to still have hubby home for 3 more days he's busy working in the hard & keeping the ladies busy so I can work!

Oh wait I nearly forgot the weather! We went home & it was COLD/DAMP long pants & sweaters were a must for a lot of our trip. We get home to a HEAT WAVE & we haven't even opened the pool yet.. 2 more sleep then that will open! It's terribly hot here, we had to turn the AC on!
