Jon and I had some very dear friends getting married in Canada. We told them to let us know as soon as they had a date. So beginning of this year they let us know and we purchased tickets.
Then Jon got a job in Tennessee. So last Wednesday we drove almost 8 hours back to Raleigh, NC to catch a flight to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Crazy, but so worth the tiredness.
The kids were amazing travelers and took everything, including the 2nd time change in 2 weeks, in stride. Caitlin loved playing with Dominic's suit case. When we got ready to come home we went to Walmart (yes, Canada has Walmarts) and bought a larger size for Dominic so Caitlin could have one as well. This also gave us some extra luggage space for the things we got while we were there.
Our friends, Jairo and Martha have a mini van so they picked us up from the airport and took us everywhere with them or let us borrow their car. Dominic really enjoyed being in the back with the "big kids" in a booster seat. Although he informed me that he missed his car seat at home and didn't want to move to a booster seat in our car. =)
My beautiful friend Martha! We had so much fun spending a few days with the Valencia family!
