We were relieved that our first day on the road after a 3 day break was a short one - only about 6 hours! We left Willy and Darlene's house around 9:30 and got out of town around 10. Washington is so beautiful! The weather was wonderful the entire time we were there and today it was rainy.
We stopped to get gas in the car, fill up our gas cans with "cheap" gas, and change diapers before we crossed the border. The boys had fun in the front for a few minutes.
Our last picture before we crossed. We both felt SO weird. I cannot tell you how it felt to know we were really about to start the journey to our new home. Several people have asked me after the packers took our things if it felt real or after we drove away from our home if it felt real. It did not feel real until that moment.
Here is the little road on the way to the border. I am loving all the tree lined roads!
It took us a little under 2 hours to get to the Canadian border and we were there for about 45 minutes. Tim was told at his base that all he needed to get through the Canadian border patrol were his orders and his ID. Well, that was not the case. Thankfully we had his birth certificate and his expired passport with us. The boys and I all had special passports to cross. Some of the ammo we had in the car had to be surrendered because hollow point is illegal in Canada. But other than that, it was a pretty smooth crossing.
Once we crossed and got out of the first little town, we were blown away by the beauty of all that was around us. We saw numerous waterfalls. I think I squealed every time I saw one! Absolutely breathtaking. All the little white lines you see in these pictures are waterfalls. The mountains were gorgeous. So majestic.
This is when we first drove into Kamloops.
