it's these moments-

Designer Kitchens
I had a moment today that as a mom, was a HUGE accomplishment. The kind that you want to jump up and down, high five people and tell everyone you know. So I'm telling you :) For the first time in our family's history, we drove with the kids for more than an hour and a half. You're probably laughing, people do it all the time. I know my parents did. every summer. Well, we made it all the way from Calgary, Ab to Swift Current, Sk today. Almost 5 hours.. got the girls up at 6:30am, they were AMAZING. Oh, and another first, both kids in the pool at the hotel, loving it. BIG day. High five? x

Oh, the kitchen.. it's gorgeous. From here.

I don't have kids but from what I understand, this deserves a high five. :) And this kitchen is one of my all-time faves.

That is a major accomplishment. We don't live near any family so we've been doing 8-13 hour car trips with our boys since they were born. Can make for a stressful ride. Sounds like you had a nice ride, so kudos to you. And I'm sure you are a superhero in the eyes of your kids, a hotel with a pool that wins you major points:)

Can totally relate- we drive from Toronto to PEI every year and I'm always amazed that we somehow manage to get through it- kids surprise you sometimes:) Enjoy your holiday!

I can't imagine being in a car with children for more than 10 minutes, so congrats on your big trip! and that kitchen is indeed gorgeous.

SHUT UP!?? SWIFT CURRENT? my husband's mom grew up there! Miller was her last name, Darlene her first and Elva is her Mum. There must be some connection, I'm sure.

Love the kitchen! We're planning on renovating our kitchen sometime this year and I'm looking for just the right look, and I had my eye on a grey and white combination.

Wishing you a wonderful week!
