I had hoped to have our passports this trip even though I know we don't need them but I am having trouble getting my DD's application accepted. They now want the long form copy of her birth certificate! I had to order it since I only have the small wallet size version. It's a long story why they need it but it is very frustrating! I have a passport but hers won't be back by the time we leave so I am leaving mine home. I figure they will want to know why my DD doesn't have one. Anyway - has anyone had any trouble lately crossing at Detroit with their kids? I do have both our birth certificates but last time they really questioned me. We leave in two weeks. I was born in the US but have lived in Canada nearly all my life. It is just sad that things have gotten so bureaucratic and paranoid. When I was a kid my mom took our friends along on our holidays to my grandparents all the time. I am sure no one even asked for any papers then. Sign of the times I guess.
