West to East

​I don’t even have time to go into everything we did in Canada over the last 3 weeks so this is brief. But we’ve been on british soil since 9am monday morning. And Evelyn has barely slept!!! It seems coming home from West to East is more difficult than East to West. She wants to sleep lots in the day and lie in in the morning, but we’ve got her up by 8am and let her have a 1 to 2 hour nap during the day. Shes gone to bed 7pm no problems. But then she gets up between 10.30pm and midnight for 3 to 4 hours. And doesn’t want to get up in the morning. She’s done this all 4 nights we’ve been home with no improvement. 4 days into canafa and she had adjusted. So this morning, being the first I didn’t have to get up and ready for work I let her lie in til midday so that I could too. So she didn’t nap today and refused to go to sleep until 10pm! So maybe she’ll make it to a reasonable time tomorrow morning? 

This jet lag thing is tiring.

8 days til snowdonia marathon…26.2 miles. Shit. Please sleep baba…

This is her about 9am on second day when she didn’t want to get up… cute eh?!

Photos of the travels since radium hot springs (seems a lifetime ago already)…

Waiting to check into our banff hotel:

Back at lindas. I love the banana faces:

We weren’t expecting snow and Evelyn wasn’t keen on the gear she needed to wear to be able to play in it:

We got drunk a few times with the Solomons. They couldn’t have been more welcoming πŸ™‚

We took the kids swimming:

One last road trip for Evelyn to Lake louise via Canmore where we came across a fantastic sports facility called Elevate. They have a climbing wall which you see as soon as you come in, we used the kids pool, Taz used the steam room. It was a nice hideaway when it was cold outside. Evelyn hates the clothes layers when it’s cold, see photos;-)

She cried all the way home from Lake louise to Linda’s 😦 That night she had a raging temperature (again?!?!) and of course she was ill and screaming for hours before bed on my birthday (shit I’m 30!), poor Ev 😦 Perked up a day later for the flight home though but did unfortunately do her fair share of kicking off on the quiet, dark night plane. Neither of us slept a wink. Probably no one in the surrounding area either. Oops.

We’ll miss you Solomons. Evelyn took to you like you have always been around πŸ™‚

Linda thank you for your 2 spare rooms, your breakfasts, brews, teas, tolerance of the ridiculous  noise we made and your company πŸ™‚
