Not as long a day as the last few days. We are only at 450 km
Our room at the Colonial Inn in Brandon. The view from the room.
We had a few minutes of rain at the beginning of the day, but then the
sun showed up on the prairies...
Welcome to Saskatchewan.
I only took this photo because I had a Chrysler Windsor almost like
this one when I was 14 or 15. Mine was a 4 doors and I only drove
it in the back fields...
After close to 2900 km we finally arrive at Jeremy, Danielle and
Gabriel's place in the PMQ.
Danielle is not here because Jeremy and Danielle are splitting up.
Danielle comes every day for a few hours and Gabriel will be staying at
Jeremy's until we leave in a few weeks.
This is a very nice gesture from Danielle's part and we sure do
Our grandson Gabriel. Get ready because in the next few weeks
you will see a lot of photos of Gabriel.
A short while before going to bed for the night.
We are still very happy to see all 3 of them regardless of the

What are they looking for?
Just watching a little TV.
I have to say, we are not used to having a busy little Gabriel all day
Sometime we had to recharge the batteries...
Time to make bubbles.
Gabriel can cut the grass too!
Bicycle, car, tough choices.
After a busy day and a bath, time to relax before bedtime.
We are having so much fun with Gabriel.

"I am in stealth mode."
"I am almost there."
"Oh no! You saw me!"
We had to go for a short walk before dîner. Since it had rained a
lot in the last few days, the puddles are pretty full.
Of course Gabriel fell in the puddles, he is a little cold and wet.
The chef at work.
More photos of Gabriel.
Gabriel and Grand-Maman watching Jeremy.
Just a normal day...

Saturday September 6, 2014
This morning there is a family fun day on base. Gabriel had a lot
of fun in the Jolly Jumps (Bouncy Castles).
After lunch and a good nap, we went to a playground in town.
Gabriel watching some older kids playing with worms.
"I can do it!"
Some swing time.
Just having fun!
Danielle has been playing Roller Derby for the past few months and her
team is the "Jaw Breakers".
Tonight we are at the game to watch her play. Her number is 300
and her player's name is "Danarchy".
Danielle is in the center of both photo.
A few moments before the game starts.
Of they go, Danielle is in front of the pack.
Between both periods they have a mini Zamboni cleaning the rink.
We really enjoyed the game.
It was a good thing that Danielle had showed us a video and explained
the game last evening. It made it a lot easier to follow the game.

A busy morning with Gabriel.
We played hide-and-seek!
And for lunch, we went to McDonald.
But before we eat, Gabriel plays in the play area.

An out of control descent...
Playing like that sure makes you hungry!
I skyped with my brother in the afternoon and Gabriel listened for a

This morning the contractors are in to change both doors of the
PMQ. It will be cold in the house as it is only +2 C outside.
Gabriel has fun in a half open tunnel.
Can you see him? "I am out!"
We only have two eggs for breakfast and I decide to give them to
Gabriel. Usually, he eats only one.
Well! I only ate two forks of the eggs !?!?!?!?
Gabriel's nap was some good because he slept through all the noise the
Gabriel is very good at eating corn on the cob.
A quiet evening at home.
I forgot! Danielle has an interview in Regina at the Delta Inn

Another easy day at home for us.
We are going out for a walk before diner.

us that she had the job. That is all we know for now!

because Danielle has a roller derby game out of town.
So, we have fun with Gabriel.
My size of Cheeseburgers!
Got to watch some cartoons before bedtime.

We are leaving this morning.
Goodbye Gabriel and Jeremy.
One last goodbye to Gabriel and Danielle.
The sun is hiding behind the clouds.
And we are now in Manitoba!
If you look quickly, it looks like a field of marshmallows.
Shortly after Brandon, we stopped for a short time to visit Robbyn.
We stop for fuel in Winnipeg because fuel is very expensive in northern
Ontario, here we come.
We use Trivago.ca to find cheaper room and it saved us between $25 and
$50 a night.
This one in Kenora is $90, it is clean and newly renovated
After 875 kilometers, it is nice to stop and get out of the car.
