Bright and early tomorrow morn I am packin' up the three kiddos and my grandmother. Our destination is my father's in Ottawa, about 7 hours away if the Travel Gods smile upon us gently.
When I was a child we traveled constantly. The top photo is of my eldest brother, my mom and myself (the wee one..) in Paris.. circa 1978-ish... at that time we lived in Naples, Italy and my parents owned the finest of travel accommodations. A green VW bus, custom outfitted with a pop-up sleeper. We used it well and whenever the chance happened we were off and cruisin' Europe.
Don't ya just love the pink sleepy PJ's with the feet? I can remember those so well! The toes were way too long and the white felted plastic tips flopped as I walked. Anyway, I think every person in my family has very fond memories of our adventures. I don't remember most, as I was so young, but I have the pictures to prove it!
So, anyway, off I go, to make a few memories for my children and for myself. Wish me luck! Honest, wish me luck, cause I'm really not so sure about the 7 hours thing with a 10 month old, a two and half yr old, a nine yr old and my grandmother of all people! I will return sometime on Tuesday, hopefully with all my hair.
Have a fabulous weekend dear friends!!
