In the past our family road trips were an annual thing of sorts but we kinda stopped doing them around 2013 for who knows what reason, but when Kyla and I saw the chance to get away with the kids and good weather in the forecast, we made the decision to take the little girls to Edmonton for a quick weekend. It even rained a bit....so totally April Showers for you. And to add to the fun, last minute mom decided to hop in with us.
My review post is a mixture of April Showers blog hop with my blog friends and a numbers review linkup. All kinds of fun! Or crazy. We'll see.
1046 km covered in Kyla's new Honda Pilot which is approximately 5 hours each way, but we were travelling with 3 little monkeys, so we had to make 4 pee stops at random locations. I also think Mom read 8 different stories from her 80 year old book and the girls watched 2 movies, one for each way: Mary Poppins and Tangled.
2 beds and 2 bunk beds in our room at the Fantasyland- it's always a treat staying in the mall especially when you can go wander before the stores are opened and burn off some energy.
3 graphic tees packed by me for the trip- that's all I wore and felt super comfortable and cozy. I may have bought 1 pair of shoes and pajamas. Post to come on Wednesday for that.
6 pictures sent by my Dad who was watching Jamison for the day- cutest little boy around! And also, how awesome is it that Grandpa and Grandson get a day of quality time together.
3 coins in the water with 3 wishes made- thankfully no wishes for unicorns this time. Also 3 very blue faces from cotton candy ice cream on the 3 beautiful little ladies.
3 big beers consumed at each restaurant meal- the kids were awesome in the restaurants which was also a bonus...and then on top of it we were able to watch the Jays play in Montreal.
3 hours spent on rides in Galaxyland. The girls did the big swings 2 times, the 2nd scariest rollercoaster 2 times and then everything else at least once. They did not want to leave.
2 hours spent visiting with our cousins and aunt/uncle over some yummy pizza.
Countless memories made during our April Showers trip to Edmonton. Mostly what I found the most memorable was the quality time with each girl who always had at least one adult's complete attention. But also it was a great chance for the three of them to form an even stronger bond, and really not much is more important than the people who stick by us in our world.
Head over to Leslie's El Paso home to see how she handles April Showers.
