Living Vicariously....

The Daughter who is spending the holidays as a nanny will be taking us once again to Whistler, Canada.



The tip about dog sledding in the last post was a bit fun, yes?

Today's travel adventures straight from her email home:

The fire alarm went off. Miss Drama Queen 9 year old started crying and saying we were going to die. Fire trucks came. Sleeping people evacuated into the snow. Pajamas and fur coats. My goodness. Turns out there wasn't a fire. There was a flood? I don't know what happened. But definitely exciting.

The parents took the kids to school so I hung out in the room with the toddler and admired the absolutely beautiful day we had. I kind of wanted to go to the top of the mountain but she isn't allowed to since it turns out she has an ear infection, so she can't go up until Friday. We hung out in the lobby by the fire borrowing their books and walked around looking for dogs. We both napped for 3 hours and woke up about 5 minutes before everyone got home.

My girl will be home in five days. I am very excited. Being left with the boys is exhausting.

Got travel? Holiday stories? Link on up!

boys are very active, aren't they. and whether i'm glad about the dog sledding trip i'm not too sure, 'cause i surely have always wanted to do that. but now? i'm gonna have to think twice...

Those darn boys can surely keep us on our toes...lol...not that those girls don't or can't but there is something about being the only female. Glad she will be home soon. Happy for you! XX

The Nanny will have enough adventures when she returns to write a book! It'll be great!

How exciting to be young and starting out on new adventures so far from home. I know what you mean though. When the girls are far away from me, I can't see them soon enough. And though I have all daughters, I know their sons are a handful!

Happy New Year, Pseudo!

I know you can't wait to see her. I bet she will have even more stories to tell once she gets home.
