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.

Everyone looked really nice. We took the kids out to several places to have fun. Their first elephant ride! I took some time out to do a mini photoshoot at a waterfall in Hamilton. 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.
