We decided to go back up to Canada for a visit since we haven't been home in 6 months and we aren't sure when we will be able to make it back next. Since Lyndz is 38 weeks pregnant her and Becks would be flying leaving me and the boys alone for our 13 hour drive home, BLAH!
Of course for those of you who know my Dad you know he would NEVER let that happen! He booked a flight and flew in the day before making the long drive back with me and the boys on Friday morning. I honestly could not have done it alone and this is NOT the first time he has done this for me. THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU for everything you do for me Dad, I love you so much and can never express the gratitude I feel. He really is the best Dad ever!
I also want to mention that Lorraine and Al said if he couldn't make it down one of them would happily come and pick us up. I must have some seriously cute boys to make everyone so willing to drive all that way to get us home for a visit. Thanks guys, Love you!
So we made it home in 13 hours and the boys did great! We spent the first week in Stirling playing and hanging out until Aaron made it home on the 19th. Here's how we filled our time......
Playing with the dogs.
This is how AJ and Gus play together. Gus hiding under anything he can and AJ trying to reach him, Nice!
Playing at Uncle Scott and Aunt Carols farm.
Enjoying our Family.Here we have Miles and Luke, born just 20 minutes and 1200 minle apart! When me and Agnie were growing up we use tell everyone that we were cosins and play challengers ALL THE TIME! We loved hanging out and have always been close, I love that girl and hope that our two little boys tcan make as many fun memories as we have. I can't believe us girls didn't take a picture!
Oh and did I mention that after 3 months of straight rain in Portland we arrived in Stirling just in time for this.....
Isn't that crazy!?!? I never remember it raining much in southern Alberta, in fact I always remember praying for moisture in our church meetings but niot this year. It was actually announced as a state of emergencey with all the flooding!
We came back for another four days after a week in Fort Macleod and it was great. We jsut love being home and spending our time with our families, the only problem is now we miss them even more!
