Road Trip Anyone?

Hi everyone,

What do you get when you put a 2 1/2 year old, a dog, a mom, and a dad in a truck for a 12 hour drive? A road trip to Canada! Oh, and bits of insanity and craziness.

We left bright and early on Monday morning with the truck loaded with all of our gear, snacks, drinks, and entertainment. I think mommy and daddy were hoping I would take a nap on the way there during my usual time but I decided that there was too much to see and I didn’t sleep a wink. Whew, sanity saved by a muppet movie and Thomas the Train. We quickly set up camp and all of us went to sleep at about 10:00pm.

Here’s another question for you: What do you do when you are in a beautiful valley driving through the Canadian Rockies and you take out your camera and get this lovely sight on the screen? What does this mean?

It means it is time to buy a new camera! Yep. Mommy took out the camera to get the very first picture and there was just a black screen. So much for bringing extra batteries, how about an extra camera that works.

Luckily Banff had at least 4 camera stores and the one where we purchased our new camera had prices reasonable to those we would find at home. It’s a good thing too because you would have really missed out on this:

Doesn’t that look so much better!!!

Stay tuned for more adventures from our camping trip. Until next time . . .
