Day 17 (Aug 15) - Home :) And a shiny silver dragon?

It took us a bit longer than we expected, but we made it home.
The border crossing took about an 90 minutes, which was longer than we had expected.
But the end result is the same :)
The kids were on the lookout for the Flags to guide them into the U.S. and there was a shout of "we're home" when we crossed the border. Then we grabbed lunch and kept on driving.
The house was still standing and all seemed well, and we slipped back into our usual routine :)

Oh and we saw one shiny silver dragon..... on the highway on our way home this morning.... still in Canada.
Something odd on the flatbed.....

It's a ......
Told ya ;)
I looked up the web address on one of the trucks following the dragon and found out it was a Chinese Imperial Water Dragon. It was created by a BC metal artist.... it was quite the sight to see.
