A Loooooong Day, a Tunnel, and Two Super Cars

DAY 9 on the Road to Nova Scotia
Kapuskasing ON to Drummondville QC (1073.6 km)
5404.2 km in total from Yellowknife

Motivated by being more than halfway, tired of staying in hotels, and with time zones seriously kicking our butts, we started à parler français au Québec.

Where's the Thunder?

DAY 7 on the Road to Nova Scotia
Winnipeg MB to Thunder Bay NS (779.1 km)
3711.9 km in total from Yellowknife

(DAY 6 was a second day in Winnipeg.  Eli's truck was making noise that was making him crazy, so he got some exhaust work done.  And, he was exhausted.)

We hit the road, and most of our stops were to get gas, food or the bathroom.
This cool spaceship playground was outside one of the gas stations, so the girls had a chance to play a bit before we were on the road, again.

Happy Accidental Detours on the Highway

DAY 5 on the Road to Nova Scotia
Saskatoon, SK to Winnipeg MB (should have been 786.4 km)
PLUS a small accidental but happy detour: 851.8 km
2932.8 km in total from Yellowknife

We left Saskatoon pretty late (about noon) because the kids were all playing together so nicely at Chris and Shawna's, but we knew that we still had several thousand kilometres ahead of us.  We punched our destination in the GPS and took off.

Roller Coaster Girls

DAY 3 on the Road to Nova Scotia
Staying in Edmonton, AB

We had a recovery day in Edmonton today, and to burn the girls energy, Stella and I hit the West Edmonton Mall with the girls.  We've been to the mall many times while living in Yellowknife, and have done most things at the mall... the water park, the sea lions, shopping like crazy... but today, we visited Galaxy Land!

Pure J.O.Y!

Hakuna Matata

DAY 2 on the Road to Nova Scotia
Peace River, AB to Leduc, AB (515.2 km)
1524.3 km in total from Yellowknife

We "slept in" a bit, and hit the road.

We had a very important reason to arrive in Leduc early in the afternoon.

Well, two reasons.  One, Stella's lazagna.  Two, ROAR!

I was so excited to see The Lion King, and to take the girls!
