March 31, 2010
The alarm sounded at 2:45 am.
We finished the last of the packing.
Buckled the kids in the car.
And thus began our family vacation to Canada, 2010.
Airport Departure- 6:30 am from Fresno
Layover in Seattle
Knocked out in the "van" from "van"couver.
(macy is the one who noted this)
We made it safe and sound to Joe, Heidi(Steve's sister),
& Elizabeth's placein the Kitsilano neighborhood.
We were starving so we headed to a Thai restaurant
down the street for somePad Thai and chicken satay.
We walked to the beach to stretch our weary legs.
Even in the bitter cold, the streets are full of people enjoying the day,
taking dogs for walks, children to play dates, and training for the upcoming marathon.
We found a beautiful totem pole near the Maritime Museum.
...and an awesome tree for Macy to climb.
Steve also considered a new line of work.
We enjoyed the scenery, fellowship,
and opportunity to be hosted in the town
Joe & Heidi have called "home" for the last 5 years.
Most of all, we were just happy.
Happy to have arrived safe.
Happy to be with family.
Happy to learn and experience new things.
And Happy to get some sleep.
