We left about 5AM on Thursday, thinking the dogs would just sleep while it was still dark out....nuh-uh! It was hours of "Mika - lay down....Mika - lay down....good girl. Mika - lay down....MIKA - LAY DOWN". Needless to say, that night, they both PASSED OUT COLD.
We got to see my husband's family (Mom, Dad, sister with her husband and son, cousins, aunts, uncles) and his friends from growing up who still live there. We took the dogs to the beach on Lake Ontario...Sasha loved running in the water (this is the dog who doesn't want to go outside when it is raining!!) and Mika was terrified of the waves....Mika....the lab....the water dog....

Mika: No! I do not like the waves!
The weather was nice - a little on the cool side - we only had a couple of rain showers on Friday. The rest of the time was dry and sunny, for the most part. It was a lot of good food, great people, fun and laughter. It's always a good time when we go there - it's just a REALLY LONG trip to get there and back.

I missed our chickens immensely! But they were in good hands with our neighbor across the street. Turns out, she used to have chickens of her own so she knew what to do. But apparently, we got a TON of rain at home while we were gone, so there is no sand left in the run. Guess what we will be doing this weekend :-)
So, what was the best part about spending 22 hours in the car in four days?
Mmmmm.....and it's Pumpkin Spice season too!!! YUMMY!!!
(We don't have any where we live, so I make sure to get my fill when we go up north)
