2 Cities in 10 Days

Talk about traveling with the whole family (yes all 6 kids) in our big “Tran” (it fits 12) and all of our things including some handmade gifts. What a trip. We had so much fun. Driving from Maryland to Toronto took us about 9 hours. We left really early so we made very few stops. Plus we were still fasting so need to stop for food.

A little unfortunate mishap was when someone hit our vehicle while it was parked and all the kids were in the car. That big passenger van moved too when it was struck. I was so mad. Luckily all ended well. We ran our Henna Event & Social at Modah on July 9th where I got to meet some of the fabulous Toronto area henna artists and got to see family. I haven’t seen my Aunty Joan in many years and my cousin even longer. It was so amazing seeing them and getting to do henna for them! My Aunty Joan is...
