This was us leaving my parents' farm early Wednesday morning:
Micah looks like he's already anticipating the way he'll feel after 25+ hours in the van...
After stopping in Saskatchewan to visit relatives, we had a quick 2 night-stay in Edmonton so we could enjoy the mall. A few rides in Galaxy Land, some time in the waterpark, a little shopping and then we were off again, and looking forward to being back in beautiful British Columbia.
I didn't take many pictures on the trip home - other than these few while we stopped at Mount Robson. Erik took a quick catnap in the van while the kids played...
Pyjamas make great traveling clothes.
The last stretch from Hope to Abbotsford is always the worst.
Correction - I think the last stretch of any drive is the worst. And inevitably, for our family, there is always at least one child who has a meltdown during that entire hour.
After almost 15 hours straight of driving? We expected it.
We waited for it.
But... it never came.
The kids - especially Silas - amazed us.
I think we're raising some hard-core road-trippers.
We pulled into Toews headquarters on Saturday evening, happy to be "home" - even though we'll be living out of suitcases and boxes for a couple more weeks until the big move into our new place.
And once we were home, it was time to fulfill a promise we made to the kids....
The kitten belongs to everyone, but we knew that Keziah would pretty much take over all pet-sitting responsibilities, including deciding when he shall eat, sleep, play and poop. I call her my "smother mother".
Poor Moses is being a really good sport.
He let her tuck him in this afternoon and stayed there for a long catnap.
And I knew the kitten was a keeper when I watched him sit still while Keziah brushed his fur with a barbie comb.
Welcome to the family little Moses.
