Our newest family member – Canon EOS #RebelSL1

Canon EOS #RebelSL1 Camera

Every year, for the past 9 years, we go to Smugglers Notch Resort in Vermont as a family for Thanksgiving. The first year we went, Gabrielle was only 3 months old and now she’s 8.  Crazy how time just flies by. This year it was only my parents and my family who went (usually my sisters come too with their families), however we did bring along our newest family member… the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 camera. And what a fun family member to travel with! You can see some pictures from last year’s trip here: Our Family Tradition. You’ll notice right … {continue reading}

#GMCHTA-2013-Bloggers-Feature

I left home at 6:00am. When we got to the VT border I was greeted with Why? Why? Why? by border patrol. Every answer I gave resulted with a why? I don’t think the young gentleman knew what a blogger was and he only stopped asking questions when I mentioned the World’s Longest Yard Sale. He responded with ”Good-luck with that!”. I would have thought bringing up GMC and Habitat for Humanity would be enough… but nope. Sébastien and my daughters dropped me off at the Burlington airport and off I went. Nobody cried even though we all knew that … {continue reading}
