We spent a lot of time in the car over the past few days. Both kids did awesome in the car. Caleb chattered away in the backseat. There wasn't a peep out of Emerson the entire trip. Seriously. The moment we hit the road she would fall asleep.
Some classic car shots...
Doug dutifully kept his eyes on the road while I (annoyingly) snapped away.
First stop of the day... Shannon Falls. Caleb was quite excited!
He was practically jumping for joy.
Classic Emerson shot... stuck in her stroller.
Next stop. Lunch. Caleb amazed both Doug and I with his name writing skills. I knew that he could write his first name-- when I say write I mean "kind of write all of the appropriate letters on the page in no particular order". But we were shocked when he went on to write his last name... he only got stumped on the "W". Totally picture worthy.
Our hotel room in Squamish. Great deal, great place. I only noticed Caleb about to fly in the background later on when I went through our pictures. Apparently all semi-bouncy surfaces must be jumped on. Immediately.
Then on to Whistler for the afternoon. First stop-- Starbucks, of course. Doug and I both had the usual. Caleb tried the hot chocolate.
Emerson was the star of the show in the sling. She was happy as a clam in there-- and everyone wanted to stop and take a peek.
Checking out the after-effects of the Olympics.
Caleb was quite excited to watch the skiers and snowboarders in action. Maybe next year his Daddy can start with the lessons!
We found a large mirror in Lululemon and decided to take a family photo. That task proved to be more difficult than expected.
Back in our room for the night. Emerson was quite intrigued by the fireplace.
Caleb enjoyed his bowl of popcorn. It started out on the couch. But after I tried to sneak a handful...
It moved to his lap.
It was a short getaway-- we made our way home this morning because I had a dentist appointment (yuck!) I'm still frozen as I type. But taking short family trips like this are always fun. And, it got us excited about our actual Christmas getaway-- just 10 more days!!
