We made it to Canada!!!
We Made it to CANADA!! (notice the speed limit sign in kilometers)
We crossed into Canada on Tuesday May 29th. The border crossing was interesting. I have never been to Canada before now, and was excited to see how the process worked. It went smoothly. We got asked a few questions and a police dog sniffed the truck and trailer. (Meanwhile Hunter (our dog) freaked out and barked his head off at the police dog) Then they let us through. Later that night we stopped to overnight at Wal-Mart. We needed a few groceries so we went inside. One thing I was not expecting about Canada is that half of everything is in french. I saw these french baby wipes and couldn't help but laugh!
The next day we continued on to our first destination, Banff National park!
Yes you read that correctly.
No we were not arrested. (Thankfully)
Yes it's a hilarious story.
I'm dead serious.
I was sitting around the table with my family one night reminiscing. Our conversation brought us back to the time we were asked to leave Walmart. We came up with some pretty fun names for my story. For example, The Time we were Falsely Accused and escorted from Walmart. Or, The time we were almost arrested over a 3 dollar hot glue gun. Either way it's a pretty funny story. It's been long enough now that we can laugh about what happened. However at the time it was no laughing matter. Thus starts my tale of woes....
I love doing crafts, especially anything on canvas. I had just seen a video that inspired me to start a new project but I needed a hot glue gun that I could pretty much ruin. Instead of putting glue in it I was going to use crayons. So I picked up a mini one at Walmart for 3 dollars. It was a high temp gun which may have been where I went wron…
Hello Everybody!! I'm sorry it has been so long since I have updated y'all. We are in a season of life right now where we have been stationary coming up on two months. I have been doing a lot of thinking about my blog and what to post. My blog mainly features what I learn about my Lord, myself, my family, and God's creation as I travel. So being stationary, I was worried anything I wrote about would be boring. As events unfolded, this topic of loving your enemies was pressed on my heart. Then my pastor gave a sermon on the topic and I knew that was my green light to start writing. So here we go.
Love your enemies.
Yep, you read that right.
Isn't that such a strange concept? Our culture has always been supportive of a self satisfying attitude. Culture tells us to look out for number one and those who are mean to us, aren't worth it. This age of technology makes it so convenient to burn people online. It's so much easier to send a nasty text or post a mean comme…
Everyone who knows me, knows that I am totally, completely, undeniably horse crazy!! I don't have one of my own (yet) because it wouldn't fit in the RV. However, I have another passion, my dog Hunter.
This is my boy Hunter. He is blind, but doesn't let that stop him! He is super sweet, and honestly believes that he is a ten pound lap dog. (He is actually eighty five pounds!) One of Hunters favorite foods is ice cubes, *although he would eat anything you gave him! We rescued him six years ago, so we don't know exactly how old he is, but we estimate around nine or ten years old. He is a yellow American lab.
As wonderful as Hunter is, he has some pretty silly fears. For example the smoke detector. Smoke detectors save lives and yet the loud screeching sound scares hunter out of his skin! Another instance is fireworks. I can imagine to a blind dog loud explosions would be a little unnerving! As these things occur, I sit uncomfortably on the floor with my shaking, terrified…
