Over the River ....

and through the woods to grandmother's house we go...

It'll be a long 18++ hours before we arrive at grandmother's house. They live around Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The kids have taken many long distance car trips over the meager spans of their lives, so they know full well what it's going to be like - and yet they both have said they love taking long car rides.

I'm hoping I'll still be able to do a little posting while I'm in Canada...my parent's have a fast internet connection :)

I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures...when I first checked the extended forecast it looked like the highest high was gonna be about 81 degrees...but when I checked today there was an 86 poking it's head up - so we'll see.

If you've heard about the wild mosquito infestations in Canada, and wonder if it's true - it is! I am not looking forward to the bombardment of mosquitoes every time we set foot outdoors. I sure don't remember them being that bad when I was growing up - guess I was just so used to it I didn't even think about them.

Lord willing, we'll be back in the hot mid-west in 8 or 9 days.
