Homegrown Texan

Born and raised in Texas, I've found the home of my heart and soul in the Pacific Northwest. I love trees, cool weather, and rain. I'm a back to basics kind of gal just trying to raise my family and find a bit of time to slow down in this hectic life.

Back in March the family went on our first ever trip to Canada. It was nothing short of spectacular.

Earlier this week (incidentally, about the time day temps started hitting the 100s here...coincidence?), Nathan started talking about wanting to go to Canada.

Ok, "talking about" is a bit of an understatement. Jim said he spent about 4 hours on Thursday *crying* because he wants to go to Canada. Four hours!!!! For the last few days, he's been pointing at his little Canadian flag luggage tag that we put on his backpack and saying, "We want to go back there, right?" and "Everything's red in Canada!" (?!?!?!?!)

Oh, and I never realized how many Canadian products are available here in the States. The kids notice that little maple leaf on *everything*. :)
