Canada Trip - Day 2

Since the mama was awake and couldn't fall back asleep - we all got an early start Saturday morning.

The motel served a continental breakfast and so we were looking forward to some waffles...until we realized that we got our motels mixed up and this was not the motel that served waffles :(

We had a long stretch of driving and it seemed to go slowly - but changing drivers, and listening to The Wizard of Oz on CD made the boredom bearable. A little nap helped too.

We had no problem at the border - though it's still always a little scary to anticipate it...just don't know if they'll decide to deny us entry or make us take everything out of the car and search it.

I knew the stretch of driving from the border to my hometown was relatively easy (and slow - the speed limit is dreadfully slow even though you are in the middle of nowhere) so I offered to drive. Well wouldn't you know the rain started soon thereafter. I don't like to drive during the best of conditions...and it seemed like it rained almost the whole way. When we were about 15 min from my parents' house we witnessed a car accident - first "on scene" accident I have ever witnessed.

The rain started letting up once we pulled into the driveway - we were thankful to have made it safely and for our long journey to be over.
