Travelling with your family is always an interesting experience, isn't it? Anytime when you're in close quarters with people, like a vehicle, you're bound to hear things that surprise you, smell things that gag you, and watch scenery go by that inspires you. As I get older - and as of this weekend I'm thirty - I'm coming to enjoy the time I spend trapped with my family more than I ever expected I would. Whenever I go somewhere or do something, I look to them to share the experience. And when they're not around, I miss it. When I look at them walking towards the frozen St. Lawrence River in this picture, I can't really tell who is who - but it doesn't matter. Part of being family is that we're all the same.
