The idea was totally crazy. Calgary to Boise to Penticton to Calgary in two weeks. That’s 32 hours of driving with a baby, which really means like 48+ hours on the road if you count the stops. That is so much driving. But we all did well and we actually had a good time in the car. It was nice to introduce E to some aunts and uncles she had never met before and of course it was nice to spend some time with our family. Since we don’t know where we’ll be next year, we wanted to do as much visiting as we can while we are within a reasonable distance.
The highlight from Boise, in my opinion, was probably the church walk and carol sing-along on Boxing Day. A lot of the old churches downtown were open for viewing with organists playing. Afterward there was a big crowd at St. John’s cathedral to sing Christmas carols. It was the best combination of community, music, architecture and Christmas.
