Road trip 2010-style

As in, playing with your happy meal toy while you watching “Over the Hedge.” I wanted to sit in the backseat with them… love that movie!


So on Sunday night, we (Scott) drove until about 2am- at which point, everyone else in the van was asleep, so he decided to pull into a Tim Horton’s parking lot and take a quick nap before continuing on. We were woken up at 4am by a paramedic guy knocking on our window. He said something in French. Scott said something along the lines of, “Parlez vous English?” Then the guy just looked confused, shook his head, and motioned for us to open the windows. His knocking had woken all the kids up, except Ella who was still sound asleep cuddled up to me in the passenger seat. Scott mumbled in his still half-asleep state, “He didn’t even speak our language… He was like some sort of alien.” I don’t know why this made me laugh so hard- but it did. Even if it was 4am. We were almost through Quebec and into New Brunswick! We put Ella back into her seat, gave everyone a granola bar, and we were off!
