go dog go

Went to my sister's place last night. Annie asked me to read GO DOG GO to her. I did, and when I got to the last page she said, "Again, peeze." I read the book to her four times before Kaarel interceded and suggested another of her favourite books, NINA NINA BALLERINA. I suspect she liked this book a lot because it had a character named Sara in it. I read NINA three and a half times (at one point, Annie seemed to be distracted by a toy and I tried ending the book early by saying 'THE END' after getting only halfway through...she immediately asked me to read the book again, so I achieved nothing with my deception except to horrify my sister, who was within earshot).

More trip reports:

Aug.27-28th (Nahanni Butte, Blackstone Landing)
Aug.29th (Fort Simpson and home, Final Comments)

I'll be adding photos to my Nahanni trip report next week.

Woke up this morning with a bug, ugh. :-( Although I'm grateful I didn't get sick on the canoe trip, the timing of this bug isn't the greatest since it's going to make it more difficult for me to catch up with work.
