We're Off!

Oppss, Dad made a mistake.  
We thought we were leaving at 11AM, but Dad checked and found we were leaving at 8AM.  So we packed quickly drove to San Francisco, booked a hotel while driving, and stayed at the Quality Inn for a five and a half hours.  We had a yummy breakfast and the lady working there helped us make waffles.  
To the airport, we dropped off our rental car and took the train to the international terminal.  Bags checked, through security, and we boarded our first flight on Air Canada.  It was a five hour plane flight on which I got to watch The Lego Movie and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.  We landed in Montreal and enjoyed a quick dinner at Cabine U where the waiter, Maurice, was very nice and helped us order stuff my brother and I would like. Then off to the Maple Leaf Lounge, where Dad had to sweet talk Alec and I in as he is allowed only one guest.  The lady was very nice and only charged us for one, $25.  We found a kids' room with Legos, Play Station and outlets for us to play Mind Craft and read books on my Kindle.  And there's yummy snacks including fresh baked cookies and juices.  Next up a 8 hour flight to Rome.

Child Takes Over!

I am Allyson Jolly.  
 I am one of the children of "Child on the Go" and this summer 
I am taking over my Mom's website.  
Have no fear!  We are still fact going BIG this summer.  
We will be spending most of our summer vacation overseas visiting 
Italy, Israel, and France with brief stops as well in Canada and Greece.  
I am almost exploding with excitement.  
I love to write and look forward to sharing our adventures with you. 
Please leave comments or questions about my travels, to help me improve my writing, or to simply say hi.
(by the way Duolingo is a great way for kids to learn languages...
I've been practicing Italian for our first stop)
