Time with family

We left the Tyler Place on Saturday and headed to Ottawa to recover and get caught up on laundry and visit Grandmother and Grampy and friends. 

After 2 nights there we drove to Hamilton and have a few day here relaxing and visiting cousins. 

We arrived to find matching shirts and a wonderful dessert prepared by Mary. Chocolate Fudgeo Strawberry Ice Cream Pie!

Vacation week!

Our yearly visit to The Tyler Place Family Resort was last week and we enjoyed it for a 3rd year running. 

I pulled in with just under 2000miles on the odometer since leaving Dallas (Not quite 1/2 way yet).  

We had fun in the sun and wind and even the rain. It was relaxing and enjoyable for all. We don’t carry our phones often while at camp so there aren’t many pictures yet. The official roving photographer captured many fantastic shots again this year that we will share later. 

Road trip day 6 and 7 

Sorry for the slow update but last week was vacation!  

Our 6th day on the road we travelled from Hamilton ON to Ottawa ON to visit with Grandmother and Grampy for the night. The kids enjoyed the short stop and the break to go to the park for a play with Grandmother. 

The quote of the day was Colin at a rest stop. “Daddy, why is it so cold even though the sun is up?”  It was only 78F and a little bit of wind. 

Day 7 was a 3 state/province day again!  ON-QC-VT. We had a deadline of getting to the Burlington Airport to meet up with Mommy before heading to The Tyler Place Family Resort for our week of vacation, which of course started with a round of mini golf. 

Road trip day 5

A quiet day with cousins. The kids started at their own pace this morning after a late night yesterday. 

The afternoon included a Creek walk for kids and a bunch of running around for Cliff. 

Not to be outdone Hamilton had to make their bid at the best fritters too. The best are still in Fort Worth. 

It was a great quiet day. 

Road trip day 4

On the road again!  Another three state/province day. IN-MI-ON. Just over 500miles today after changing the route slightly to avoid rush hour traffic in central Detroit. 

We started the day with the second best apple fritters in the US. 

We arrived late in Hamilton and settled in for a good and well needed rest day tomorrow 

Road trip day 3

Today was a short driving day but a busy day playing. 

We met some friends and went to “The Biggest and Best Children’s Museum in the World” in Indianapolis IN. 

It was great fun and all of the kids had a great time. The rest of the day was spent relaxing at our friends home. 

Road trip Day 1

Today was a busy day of driving. 

479 miles, 3 states (TX, OK, MO), 2 playgrounds. That’s our longest planned driving day going east. 

It started with a blown fuse to the power outlet (cigarette lighter) that I promptly replaced. 

On the road at 8:15 and at the hotel by 6:15. A great day for shows in the car and new sticker books. 

Tomorrow, St Louis and the Gateway Arch!
