Open Call for Vacations

OK, this is for the three of you reading. Alma, Baby Z. and me are planning a trip for sometime in June. We'll be meeting up with Eleanor and Simon (in from Sydney) and Alma's mom (in from Virginia). Yet we're stuck: where to go? The single biggest factor from our vantage is a destination not too far, that doesn't require long stints in the car and with something for three generations to enjoy. Or four, if you count Eleanor's and Simon's youthful desire to climb mountains and bungee jump. I thought of Montreal or thereabouts. Eleanor suggested some place 2 hours outside of Calgary. Alma's mom suggested Alaska (nice and I'd love to go, but it may be implausible), while Alma seems interested in sticking closer to home, perhaps Michigan.

So, the open call: where should we go on a summer vacation with a 20-month old in tow?

You may be surprised at how HOT Montreal gets in the middle of the summer. If you do decide to go there, let me know -- I can give you the name of a very nice hotel with plenty of room for Zoe.

The suspense is over. We're going to Canmore, Alberta. Eleanor picked the town and I found a vacation home to rent at
