A few people have noticed we haven't had any updates for a couple days. We ended up renting a van in Regina, loading our stuff in it and driving home. We didn't do any blog posts because we wanted to see the look on our parents faces when we showed up at home(totally worth it by the way). We decided to chicken out and quit the trip for a few reasons but mostly it stopped being fun and felt like a chore. And, since it was supposed to be a vacation we saw no point in being miserable and sufferring through it.
We didn't really take a whole lot of pictures of the ride home. We left Regina around 1:30 wednesday afternoon and drove pretty late we stopped a couple times for short naps but they weren't too long. We made it to Chris's cousin Annette's house just past Sault Ste. Marie by 8:00 thursday night. It was a good visit since its been about ten years since Chris has visited them so it brought back lots of memories. We went to bed pretty early and we slept like babies!
In the morning we drove to Chris's Aunt Dorthy and Uncle Art's house where we had a quick visit and saw Rachelle and Tyler off to school. We were on the road again with home as the final destination. The around 8 hour drive seemed to fly by(compared to yesterdays drive). We were surprised how quickly we made it through Toronto since we drove through at rush hour.
We made it home safe and sound around 5. It will sure be weird not having to wake up and ride a bike everyday. Oh, and it will also be weird not updating everyone on what we've done everyday...I'm sure our lives will become far less interesting anyways. We may do another post or two about our final thoughts on the trip but right now we're pretty exhausted so that won't be for a day or two.
