The trip to BC was great! The boys, known for being great travelers, were just that. Instead of watching videos and asking “Are we there yet?” they engaged in games and singalongs. It was like mobile karaoke. Even the sulky teenager managed to make it all the way without sulking. That would only last until we made it to BC. It was a very fun and interesting trip to Vernon.
The drive through the mountains on the way to BC is unparalleled. So many oohs and ahhs moments. Mountain tops covered with snow, waterfalls running down the hills, glaciers, trees…beautiful indeed.
On the trip, I kept the little ones occupied by rewarding whoever can spot Manitoba license plates. They would scream, “Manitoba!” when they spied one such vehicle. On our last night staying at a hotel, Kenyan, still fast asleep, woke up screaming, “Daddy! Manitoba!” An hour or so later, Mikhail also yelled, “Manitoba, Manitoba, Manitoba!” The poor kids had Manitoba imprinted on their brains.
