We are in Victor, Idaho! We arrived Sunday night after three days in the car, which I must say went incredibly well!!! The drive through Canada was nice, but not worth repeating, we decided. It was fun to drive the kids through another country, and fun to see all the different brands of stores and the like. Figuring out the exchange rate, and kms vs. miles was fun, though I think we needed to be further north to see the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. We enjoyed two nights in hotels, with swimming pools and waterslides. Crazy story- the first night we stayed just south of Winnepeg and met a faimly with a Noah, and Two older boys, then a baby girl whoose birthday was also on Valentine's day... anyway, we swam with them and chatted, then, after driving for 13 1/2 hours and not finding a hotel in two different towns we intended to stop in, we made a late night check-in to a hotel in Medicine Hat, Alberta, and saw the same family at the same hotel the next morning! Crazy!
We've had fun thus far... Jon and Cori and renting a really nice house here in Victor (just through the Teton pass into Idaho from Jackson) while they build their house about a mile away. We have a bedroom and the kids have one right next door. We went to the fireworks in Driggs, right up the road to the north and are celebrating Jonathan's birthday tonight. Jake has been helping with the house the last couple days, and the kids and I have had fun hanging out at the laundromat, and today the library. We took a beautiful hike yesterday, and have enjoyed playing with the puppy, Java.
We miss you all and will check our e-mail and blogs every few days. Until then, Molly
