Ontario

Shasta and I just returned from a trip to Southern Ontario and we had a marvellous time.  Here’s the footage:

ontario trip 2013 (2 of 2)

Before we flew out we visited our friends the Drummond’s in beautiful Haines Junction. This is the road leading up to their house.

Here we go!  I just love looking at the mountains... they go on for miles and miles.

Shasta did well on the plane rides.  On the first one, we sat next to a very nice lady named Wendy who totally took on the Grandma role.  She held him and played with him and did just about as much work as I did keeping him entertained.  I was so grateful to Wendy.  On our flight from Vancouver to Toronto, we met a lady who offered to watch him for a while.  He ended up falling asleep in her arms for over an hour.  It was so precious.  And nice for me to have a break!  Entertaining a squirmy, active one year old for four hours on a plane is no easy task.
