day 1

well, we made it to BC in one piece. all kids are still alive and we still kinda like them! 13 hours in a car with a 4 yr old and a 6 yr old is rather INSANE, but really, the kids did exceptionally well! we were up at 3 am, packed up the car, threw the kids in and just went. the boys were awake until hinton [SUPER excited]. I gave them some gravol to get over the mountains and they generally slept on and off until kamloops. then the 45 minutes of hell began. okay, so I'll blame the mcdonald's on their general demeanor, but it really might be that I, the driver at this point, couldn't solve problems. john was asleep [until rudely awakened by piercing screams!]. needless to say, I pulled out the ol' gravol and they settled down, and in fact fell asleep near pentiction...and slept all until we woke them up in the parkade under our building. SWEET! a swim, some food and some well deserved tv time and they were sound asleep again by 8pm!

the weather here is GORGEOUS! and we spent all afternoon today at the pool. I'll post some pictures soon!
