Thank you for all your feedback. I've decided that we'll fly to Vancouver BC and we'll get passports for the kids a few months before that. We're planning to go to Europe within the 5-year timeframe for children's passports anyway. I do hope that in the future, the United States and Canada make an agreement like the Schengen agreement that the Europeans have. Canada is such a wonderful country and it's right next door, which makes the passport requirement seem ridiculous to me.
