On the eve before New Year's Eve, Robin and I decided very spontaneously to pack up the kids and the car and head north. So we spent our New Year's Eve in a hotel in Helena, Montana, equipped with a bottle of wine and cable tv! We didn't actually make it till midnight, after a long day's drive, a swim in the hotel pool and an inviting hotel bed....but it was fun to wake up in 2010 - on an adventure.
We've come north to visit family and hope to even get some skiing in while we're here. Robin isn't back in class until the 11th so we thought we'd make the most of our holiday time. It is blustery and cold here in Calgary, but we're all snuggled up here at Nana's house for a couple days before we begin part II of the adventure in the Kootenays....more soon.
