The beginning of day 18 we headed out of Sioux city and arrived in Fargo, North Dakota.
The drive was only around 4 hours (four hours seems minimal to us now!) so we spent the remaining time of our afternoon shopping. I didn't really feel like taking the camera into the stores, so the only pictures I have of that day are ones that I took of Eli...
(no, I'm not playing favouritism, he is just the only baby we have in the family right now :)
We found a campground in the dark and spent the night near the city.
Today (Day 19) we left the campground early and headed to Grand Forks, North Dakota to do some more shopping. Once again... no pictures of that :(
We went to Pizza Ranch for lunch (yummy!!), went to a couple more stores... then it was time for the Last.Trek.HOME!!!!
We were welcomed back into our country with not-so-good road conditions, and plenty of snow. I have to say folks that I love our Canadian winter. I can do no snow, no cold for a while... but I was so excited to be back in our cold country!
And so our journey comes to an end.
We are home.
The fire is going in the stove.
Christmas music is being played on the piano.
The little ones are rediscovering and playing with all theirs toys that seem new again.
And we are excitedly being reunited with our greatly missed family members.
It was good to go away... but it is even better to come home.
