Spontaneous Road Trip
Last trip of the Summer
Currently on the road to Ottawa. We have had a very busy day. Zoo in the morning with Andrea and Ava, then Ms family came for dinner.
I cooked up a nice Chinese meal – shrimp and veggie chow mein, cornstarch fish and steamed rice. Eversince driving home from the zoo, we’ve been thinking about taking a road trip. We figured the summer is ending soon, why not?
As for the destination, there were many toss ups. Niagara Falls. Kingston. Thousand islands. M had suggested Ottawa but I thought it was too far. Just as dinner was finishing up, I was already planning how we’d get out tonight.
While M bathed and dressed the kids, I packed our things. I also was multitasking trying to book us a hotel on Hotwire last minute. Marriott in front of the Parliament Hill, here we come.
I’m excited. The kids are asleep in the backseat. I just switched with M from driving. We’re most likely getting in around 1am. But it’s ok. I’m glad we decided to just do this!
