Canadian Road Trip- Full Itinerary

Canadian Road Trip- Full Itinerary

Our family is not the sit on the beach and relax kind of vacationers. We're more of the drive all over and explore things we've never seen, the weirder, the better type of family. So when we were trying to think of where to go on our "last" family vacation before our...

Canadian Road Trip- Niagara Falls, ON

Canadian Road Trip- Niagara Falls, ON

By the time we got to Niagara Falls, we were all tired! We had been walking 10-12 miles a day, stuck in a car between cities for hours on end and we were pretty much sick of seeing each other. The kids actually asked if they could skip Niagara Falls and just drive...

Canadian Road Trip- Toronto, ON

Canadian Road Trip- Toronto, ON

Toronto, ON is something to visit right after the Raptors won the NBA title. The city is still buzzing from the win and the days we were there were during "Kawai" watch, which I found out was a watch to see if their star player was going to return to the team or sign...

Canadian Road Trip- Ottawa, ON

Canadian Road Trip- Ottawa, ON

Ottawa was our favorite city on the trip. The kids loved it because it was the first city that spoke English and after a week of being in French territory that was a welcome comfort. Buffalo Wings were back on the menu at restaurants. We didn't even get to explore...

Canadian Road Trip- Innue-Essipit, QC

Canadian Road Trip- Quebec City, QC

Our first stop in Canada- Quebec City, QC. Scott had been there in February a few years ago for a business trip and even in the dead of winter he thought it was a beautiful city. This is the closest to a European city as you may find in this hemisphere.  Quebec City...

Canadian Road Trip- Burlington, Vermont

Canadian Road Trip- Burlington, Vermont

Our first stop on our two week Canadian Road Trip wasn't in Canada at all. Quebec City is about 10 hours from our house, so we decided to stop for the night in Burlington, Vermont. This was strategic as I had never been to Vermont and I wanted to visit the Ben and...

Don’t Worry! I Got Some Good Ones

Don’t Worry! I Got Some Good Ones

Getting pictures of your young kids will inevitably be a struggle. They love to frown, fuss, look the other direction, put their hands in front of their face, or insist on holding something you may not want in the picture. It can be exhausting. I try to alleviate some...
