Tomorrow morning, bright and early, we will hop in the car and hit the road for our annual summer trek up to the great white north. Every year we spend two weeks up in Ontario, where both Lorne and I are from, to visit our families and partake in a little R & R. Aside from the ridiculously long car ride to get up there and the ridiculously long car ride to get home, it is always a very fun and relaxing trip.
Last year we decided to forego the ever unpopular road trip aspect of the trip and we flew up instead. Maya was still under 2 at the time so could fly free and we managed to get tickets for a steal. This year we are back to road tripping it. It should be interesting, to say the least, to be stuck in a car for 12+ hours with a 2 and a half year old who is potty trained. I foresee a lot of pit stops along the way. All I can say is thank goodness for portable dvd players and my daughter’s love for reading and coloring, they are likely to be our lifesavers tomorrow.
I’m really looking forward to seeing my family, watching Maya play with her uncles and her cousins and just chillin’ for the next couple of weeks.
