Both our children were nicely veggetized by the portable dvd players we borrowed from my father-in-law. Each child came equipped with their own hypnotizing tv screen, which seemed to limit the whining and "are we there yet"s.
Had an overnight stay at my hubby's grandpa's, which gave him a chance to meet our latest addition, and us a chance to break up the 9 hour drive. Baby had a hard time falling asleep in his new play pen, and my hubby and I barely slept a wink. When it didn't sound like trains were driving right through our room, it was either baby snoring, the bed being way too small for my 6 foot something hubby, or the fact that it was a billion degrees in our room. Either way, grandpa tried :) and we love him.
Finally got to Winnipeg and met up with my parents. It was so cool to have my uncle, my sis and bro-in-law, us, my parents, my other aunt and uncle, and my cousin all staying in the same hotel.
We had supper at a restaurant on the Provencher bridge. It was neat to eat on top of the river.
So tired....leave us alone.....
Spectacle much? (Everyone meeting my not so new babe for the first time, and might I add, I was super impressed with how little he made strange with my strange family)
On Saturday afternoon we took the kids to Tinkertown, a fair just outside of Winnipeg. It was awesome that my little one was now big enough to join me on my favorite childhood ride, the Tilt-a-Whirl!
Oompa Loompa Oompa Dee Doo....
Look mommy! One wheel!
Us at the Forks...
We took the kids to the Childrens Festival to kill some time before we went to my cousins wedding.
Us all dolled up!
It was a gorgeous wedding and the bride was beautiful! The reception was super fun, and my sis and I got jiggy with it the majority of the night. Dancing to classics like C+C Music Factory, Aerosmith and good ol' Aqua, is where it's at people.
No Elishah, we didn't forget about you.
Finally, the last day of our trip came to an end, and we found ourselves back in the car and on our way home.
Cheers mates! I am so done with this post!
