We have made it home! It was an amazing vacation but I’m very thankful to be in my own home, to get clean in my own shower, to sleep in my own bed, and have fast stable internet connection 🙂 No more having the the younger girls share a bed or Jen and I on either side of Noah in double beds.
We woke up early this morning and hit the road. We had talked about it off and on but finally decided the night before to book the ferry from Saint John New Brunswick to Digby Nova Scotia. This saves us a large drive around where we can get out and stretch and move around while still making progress to home. It also puts a time constraint on us though. We had to be there to make the ferry or we’d miss it.
This meant it was a long day of driving without really stopping. We only stopped twice, once for gas and bathroom break and one more to grab lunch to eat in the car.
When we arrived home the first thing I noticed as a surprise was my peony has its first bloom. It apparently just opened today to welcome us home.
When we opened the door inside there were welcome home cards on the counter from my sister and her kids along with some fresh strawberries. She had also picked us up some groceries so we had things like milk and bread so we didn’t have to worry about that stuff. What a nice thing!
