1300km so far!

We have made it as far as Fort Nelson! Our time here will be spent playing with our two little nephews, who are just adorable.

So far the trip has been pretty good. That portable dvd player is worth its weight in gold as it has kept Hunter very entertained. Cavan on the other hand is not impressed to be sitting in a car seat and not be able to see anyone! He is either crying or sleeping.... no in between at all. We try to stop every so often to give him a cuddle break, but we have also had to leave him there crying so we can get to our next destination. Poor little man.

We have seen a heap of wildlife so far:
8 black bears
oodles of sheep
2 moose and one had twins!
3 caribou
many, many bison
and of course those daredevil squirrels that try to beat your truck across the road!

We will be here for the next couple of days and then off to our old stomping grounds in the NWT.

Our portable DVD player is my new favorite travel companion....Paige watched about 6 hours of Dora throughout our flights, and she was fine watching the same show over and over again....I love those things!! Glad you are having a good time!
