Long time no post
These are pictures of our Christmas road trip to Canada. The kids did so great. The trip up there was 19 hours and we just couldn't have asked for it to go any better.
Our first stop was at my dad's parents house and we were there for 3 days. Brayden had a lot of fun on the 4 wheeler with Grandpa. There was snow so that was great and grandpa likes to pop wheelys. So, that was a highlight.
Then we headed farther north to my moms parents place. That is what I call home. Only home is different now. Grandma and Grandpa have moved out of the big farm house and into the trailer/condo in town. And Uncle Bryan has moved into the big house. So, my family slept in the trailer as to not wake people in the big house early and that way people could be as loud and all that and we didn't have to worry about waking the kids. The kids loved it there as well. They had so many new people to see. Which made Riley a little clingy. But they loved there Nanny and Poppa and of course being the only great grandkids as of right now they were totally spoiled.
We went to the REALLY BIG MALL as Brayden calls it and he absoultly loved watching the sea lion show and riding on some bumper cars. Jim and I again realized that we like small towns and the country better than big city life. It was so nice to get back to the farm and enjoy the fresh air and space. I could so handle living in the country.
We had a wonderful trip and made it home safe and sound. The trip home was a lot longer but other than the flat tire and screaming kids from Gresham on (only about an hour from home) nothing major happened. I do have to say, there is no place like home.
