and now we're home. After a marathon drive of a total of 16 hours, we arrived home at 11:45pm Mountain time last night. I had not planned to drive the entire way (although, I'll be honest and say that I hoped I could), but the kids were beyond amazing and I wasn't tired in the slightest, so we pushed on.... and on. We stopped in Vancouver to meet my new little nephew Niko (he is adorable!) and then to grab dinner on the go in Kamloops and a quick potty break in Golden and that was it. The kids were quiet the entire trip (they talked amongst themselves, but didn't ask the dreaded "are we there yet").
I'm happy to be home, but sad that I left... We had a fabulous time.
