Nanaimo Time! Christmas Time!

We finally made it to the island, after a very exciting winter journey along Higway 1 through Western Canada! We observed at least 8 cars in the ditch to some degree and at least 6 other vehicles completely flipped over! (I felt pretty fortunate that Collin's truck has 4x4 at that point!)

We left at 4:45am from Calgary and made it to the ferry terminal in Vancouver by 4:20 pm (I thought we made great time!) Unfortunately we missed the 5:00pm ferry sailing, and had to wait in the vehicle till 7:00 to board our ferry. (by that time, I had played way too much 'Parachute' on my iPod and my eyes were really blood-shot!)

When we finally got to Nanaimo, the kids were exstatic to see me (they wouldn't sleep till I arrived!) and I even heard Nolan exclaim "I missed you, Aunty!" (AWE!!!)

It's going to be a great 3 day visit, and I'm so glad we made the long trip to spend this time of year with my favorite island family! Unfortunately Collin has to return to work on Thursday so we have to make the 12 hour trip back home on Boxing Day. :( I'll be sad, but looking forward to my next opportunity to come back here! I know it will be sooner then I think :)

Merry Christmas to all! Hope you are all enjoying your family and friends!

Here's to a Happy New Year!
