This past weekend though, we opted to take two nights and do some fun things with the kids while in the big city. We went to the swimming pool twice and three times to the playroom. Matt went to see Ron James do his stand up routine with a great friend of ours. And we went on a horse drawn sleigh ride! The weekend was almost relaxing! Of course we still had to the do the usual shopping, but the kids were on their best behaviour. It was the best trip I think we have taken to Whitehorse since moving here two years ago.
I was even able to find everything I needed on my shopping list included a small steam cleaner. This weekend coming up I have a mission to get the smell of barf out of our sofas. Now doesn't that sound like a good time!
There were only two parts to the trip where I wasn't impressed. The first was when I realized I had forgotten my jacket at home. So I went to Walmart and bought a new one, wore it for the sleigh ride, and then promptly returned it! The second was my dental appointment on Monday morning. Fun times. And I have to go back again in just over two weeks for them to finish the work.
Oh! And we saw a beautiful Lynx on the drive home. Plus our kids were awesome on the drive home! Cavan only cried for 1/2 an hour while Hunter slept right from Whitehorse until we hit Faro nearly four hours later. What a great trip!
And people wonder why we live here...
