Home

We pulled out of B&S's driveway in Calgary at 7:08 yesterday morning. At 10:08 last night, we pulled into ours. After exactly 14 hours on the road (crossing over one time zone on the way), many many miles of prairie landscapes, dried out chicken sandwiches in the car, a few close calls where-in the arguing children almost got abandoned in the snow along the side of the road (just kidding - they did quite well), a passable meal at the Burger Baron in Regina, switching drivers whenever we tired of the other's music selection (the driver controls the airwaves), a station break when we found out Saddam had been hanged, and we are home.

I was planning to post some pictures, and I may do that later, but first there is laundry to do, grocery shopping to suffer through, unpacking and re-packing, a haircut for Maddie, a few hundred blog posts to catch up on (I'll try to visit soon) when the other members of the family allow me on the computer, and about a million other things I can't think of right now. In the meantime, if you want to catch a glimpse of just how much fun we had (it was possitively delightful), check out the slide show on my sister's blog.

Welcome back Heather! With all the fog out there today you'd think you headed west by accident and are in Vancouver right now...

We were supposed to go to banff this w/e but decided to put it off for a couple of weeks.
Glad you had a wonderful time.

Welcome back, Heather!

That slide show was cute. The kids in the matching pj's was priceless!

Welcome home. Glad to hear you had a good time and a safe trip. Enjoyed the slide show.

We are off to Riverwood early tomorrow morning to ring in the New Year with my sister and her family. We will be back mid week. Talk to you again soon.

It was nice to meet you and your family Heather--just wish that there had been a bit more time to actually say more than hello! Do take care,
