William's Birthday

July 23 2011

Happy Birthday William, our son is four years old. We started the day by opening presents and having French toast for a birthday breakfast.  He received all sorts of great gifts from family and friends that we had been hiding from him since we left home and the Sault.  We put up some balloons and took him to the West Edmonton Mall to the amusement park area and we went on all kinds of rides. He ate caramel covered apples with Mom, ice cream with Dad and sushi for lunch (his favourite).  All in all, I think he enjoyed his day.  He was sleeping as we pulled into the campground.    I managed to brush his teeth and put him in his new pajamas just before he crashed for the night...it was 6 p.m.   That means he will be up at 6 a.m.   Our campsite was on a golf course and was very expensive and not very impressive.  I would never recommend that anyone stay here unless you were desprate like we were.  There is an Indy car race in Edmonton this weekend and all of the campsites are full.  We were stuck in a field with a hundred other trailers, no trees, no privacy.  I had to listen to the guy next to us explaining to his father-in-law how he loves his daughter and he is sorry about what happened between them.  I'll let you folks make up the beginning part of that story!  Meanwhile, his rig was running the whole time he is on the phone. 

Accommodation rating:   1/5

Today we are the West Edmonton Mall at the world's largest indoor wave/water park and Will hasn’t come out of the water for at least an hour.  We are heading north later today and we are not sure about coverage for the next few days or weeks so stay tuned for more adventures.


Suzanne, Mario and 4 year old William

Pas souvent de vos nouvelles. On espère que tout se déroule bien et que William aime voyager. Ici tout va bien. André a terminé ces vacances hier et le moteur de sa Volvo a laché. Nicolas se sert de notre Sienna en attendant.
