off we go to the new and exciting land of...canada

one of my best memories growing up is of listening to papa tell jokes. i remember this joke specifically:
three mountain men overtook the land north of the united states and decided to call it their own country. they debated on names for a great deal of time--of course each man wanted to name it after himself. finally they decided to put all the letters of the alphabet into a hat and make up the name based on the letters each of the men drew out.
the first man read the letter he drew, "'C' eh."
the second man read his letter, "'N' eh."
the third man drew, "'D' eh."
and that is how c-eh-n-eh-d-eh became canada.
it is far more lame now that it is in writing, but it makes me chuckle still. maybe will come back from our weekend away talking like canucks!
we are leaving in a couple of hours, so will be sure to capture lots of photos and post them when we return!
