::Canada Day six:

Again with the alarm clock.
Who plans their vacation this way?
Apparently we do.

Something about not wanting to have crazy weather over the pass rings a bell.
Oh, and if I recall, something about SOMEONE wanting to marry that Granville Island place back in Vancouver couldn't get the images out of their mind...

Anyways, we were back in Vancouver by noon...
which meant we had the rest of the day to really act like tourists and see some more of the city.
But first, we had to visit *sigh* Granville Island.
Here, we had Pear & Brown Sugar Crepes, Falafal, Fish & Chips, and Macy's coveted Chocolate Covered Marshmellows.

I really wanted to see some of the 2010 Olympic sights.

the torch.
the rings

The beautiful sails at Canada Place.

And the beautiful raindrop. (all $800,00 of it)

We watched a sea plane take off much to Macy's surprise.

Later we drove through Stanley Park.
Silly lady with the camera didn't take any pictures.
What's up with that anyways.

And to top off the evening, we ate at a delightful
(yet sneaky) restaurant called Milestones.
The food was fabulous.
I say they are sneaky because the waitress asked what kind of
vegetables to go with/in the kids pasta.
So I ordered steamed carrots for both of them,
assuming it came with their meal.
(You know what they say about assuming...)
anyways....they charged us $4.99 per plate of silly little steamed carrots.
Sneaky. Sneaky. Sneaky.
(Shame on me for not asking I guess.)
However, we did get some amazing ice cream for dessert
(which I DID ASK IF IT WAS INCLUDED...and it was)
the kids pasta.
steve's to die for mashed-potato-portabella-mushroom-chicken-heaven-thing.
my asian salad.

Joe's 4-cheese burger.
Heidi's pasta.
The INCLUDED ice cream.
The fam.

Great ending to a wonderful trip.
