Hi all! I'm sorry and I will try to get out of this pattern that I've been in lately of not posting for 2 - 3 weeks and then doing a large post to catch up. It has not been my intention but it has been all that I've had time for so it will just have to do!!
The start of this post takes us all the way back to November 16th!! The day of Leanna's (and baby Adriana's (the "a" is pronounced like the "a" in apple I found out!! The name is Dutch after Wilco's mother) baby shower. The girls and I made our trek up to North Vancouver a little early so that we could make a short stop at Stanley Park. It wasn't raining so it was a great day for this!
We took some pictures in front of the Totem Poles. The girls really enjoyed visiting them!
This picture shows Emily sporting each of the feet that she's collected at school. Each foot represents a completed card or 5 miles plus you get bonus feet for each subsequent card that you complete. The two big feet at the bottom are the ones that she gets when she completes the 25 miles. The kids wear them with pride!
After Thanksgiving the kids went home with Grandma and Grandpa. It gave Gord and I three whole days to ourselves! What a luxury. We did a little bit of shopping. Ended up only buying online.
The prime reason for G&G to watch the kids was so that Gord could compete in a Marathon of his own, The Seattle Marathon. He did the ½ Marathon. It turned out to be a perfect day for the marathon, it was very warm.
Nice banners to welcome us!
And we even took a ride on the Monorail. I had never been on it before! It was so crowded that we ended up just walking back.
Ready, set, GO!
