On Wednesday we took off on our annual trek to visit Granny and Grandpa. We took off to Montreal bright and early (Thanks to Uncle Steve for driving us to the airport) and got to Montreal, via Toronto, in the early afternoon.
Me and the kids getting ready to take off
Abby loved the fluffy clouds out her window
On Thursday morning we awoke to the sound of Great Granny and Great Grandad. They had arrived from Toronto to spend a few days with us. We decided to head out for a walk along the St. Lawrence River and ended up finding a lighthouse and playing some soccer.

Great picture. Abby and Zach are very lucky to have such awesome grandparents
