Road Tripping With my Three Favourite Allies

Road Trippin by The Red Hot Chili Peppers is my favourite road trip song. We usually start each day of a road trip with it. When it was just Ian, myself and Fiji we fit the song perfectly but this time around it needed just a little tweaking. It makes me a mite sad that one of the original Allies is gone (RIP Fiji) and we aren't a merry band of five making our way across Canada and the U.S.A.

The road trip has been good so far but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to periodically throw myself from the moving vehicle. It is a lot of work keeping a toddler entertained, dealing with a wailing infant and constantly checking the directions for a husband who forgets the exit number the moment I finish telling him it.

So we are on a road trip and I during the 12 hours of stops and driving I was inspired to resurrect the blog. Maybe it was inspiration, could have been boredom and it might be that I have illusions that people actually want to read about the weird chaotic things we do.

During the hiatus I spawned another sidekick via a very emotional 40 weeks 3 days and a very intense 45 min. The sidekick is Apollo and he is totally unlike Gaius in every way, just as lovely and (keep this a secret)  a bit cuter.
