Aboriginal Day and Homecoming

We drove 6 hours with 3 babies two years old and younger for a round trip to bring the girls to a celebration of culture and history put on by the other First Nation that makes up their history.

Today the girls joined in the celebration of the Shuswap Nation's Homecoming and Reconciliation Ceremony.

It was wonderful.  But the whole 6 hour round trip drive with 3 babies means I am too tired to say much more!

Tired, I only imagine. However the complete and utter joy on that little face makes it all worth while!

I can relate. In one day, I once drove like 6 hours there and 6 hours back to take my then 3 year old son to a children's museum that was having a Vietnamese exhibit. Long trip, but well worth the pulling over for many, many potty breaks (I got to see a lot of fields...luckily I have a son!), etc. :)
