Well Travis, Kaed, and I finally made it home from Ontario yesterday morning! We had a great holiday and got to see so many friends and relatives.
Our trip started out in Toronto. We arrived at around 12am so headed straight to our hotel. The next morning we made our way to Shelly's (trav's sister) work, where we met her and her fiance John for lunch. After lunch we drove to Wellandport to spend some time with my Aunt Dieni, Uncle Henry, and all my cousins. On Saturday we had a big birthday party for my Auntie Dieni and a ton of my relatives that I haven't seen in years and years came, so that was a really fun day. We relaxed at my Aunts place the whole next day and then on Monday we headed to Niagara Falls, and to do some shopping across the border in NY. Tuesday morning we got up bright and early to drive to Osgoode, which is just a half hour or so outside of Ottawa. There we spent some time with Trav's cousin and his aunt and Uncle at their place. We also went downtown Ottawa and got to see Parliament, and the Rideau Canal and other cool things. On Wednesday night, my Uncle Frank, Aunt Bertha, and cousin Jodi and her husband Jeff, came over to Trav's cousins place so I could finally meet them! Frank was the only of mom's siblings that I had not yet met, so that was pretty neat.
Thursday morning we made our way through Algonquin Provincial Park to Parry Sound. The drive was beautiful but at this point Kaed was getting awfully sick of his car seat! Once we hit Parry Sound the wedding plans and preparations took over! On Saturday afternoon at 4pm Shelly and John were married beside the lake at John's grandparents place. The wedding was so beautiful!
Sunday we headed back to Toronto with Kara and Jessie (one of shelly's bridesmaids) had dinner with them, then Travis drove them back to the airport and dropped off our rental cars. The next morning we took transit downtown and met my friend Jolene for an hour or so. Then we spent some more time walking around and seeing things. Tuesday morning we got up at 4:30 Ontario time and flew home!
What a great trip!
