To the ocean and back

We had one of those trips where Greg and I had to look at eachother and "What were we thinking?!"
We decided since we had some more time off, it would be fun to go down to the coast and bring the kids to the ocean, go to the aquarium, see my grandparents, shop a little, visit G's bro and fam. Well, the idea was great and the things we did were great...but all the driving in the city in between was LESS THAN FUN! Add to that lack of sleep, heavy traffic and not a good map, the fact that we have THREE children in one vehicle (two of which will never sleep in there), and it just wasn't a recipe for fun. We just did WAY TOO MUCH in WAY TOO LITTLE time.
We should have just stayed camping!!
Our trip home today was actually quite pleasant, as we turned to the DVD nanny for help. When we pulled into Salmon Arm, Liam yelled out, "DeMille's!!? We're already in Salmon Arm!!? I can't believe we made it home and I didn't even fall asleep!!" (Like it was some big accomplishment.)
Anyway, we're not planning any more road trips any time soon. Oddly the baby wasn't the issue, it was the oldest that was the biggest pain!
But hey, it wasn't all bad...and we have some pictures to prove it...

Oh wait...I was there too!! Greg took a picture of me!!
