Vancouver Part 2

For the second part of our vacation, we went to Vancouver, BC to visit with M's Grandma and Auntie Heather. It was the first time I had been to Vancouver and Cam hadn't been since he was a teenager. It is a really nice city with lots of great things to do outdoors. We only had a few days to explore so went on a trolley tour around the city to get an overview. We also went to Granville Market for lunch and some browsing. On our last day in Vancouver, we went up to Grouse Mountain to look around and grab some lunch.

Here are some of my favorite pics from Vancouver...

Two Little Girls Explain The Worst Haircut

This was too cute not to share.

Vancouver Part 1

Wow, I am behind on blogging...

We went to Vancouver for a week and it's taken us 3 weeks to get back on schedule and for me to get my energy back. Even Cam, who usually isn't phased by travel, had a tough time getting back on track. 

Anyway, we had a great vacation in Vancouver and a lovely visit with Cameron's family. Travelling there wasn't too bad. It's a long day of flying but M was a trooper and slept most of the flight there. One of the passengers behind us actually said, "I didn't know there was a baby up here." And several other passengers congratulated us on a successful flight. 

We started in Sidney, BC which is on Vancouver Island with a fun family reunion. It is always nice to visit with Cam's Granny, aunts, uncles and cousins. We don't get to see them very often since we are scattered all over the continent. Here are some of my favorite pics from our visit to Sidney.

Here is a view from the porch of our suite. And a nice little rainbow peaking through.

Cousins Launey & Heather try to determine who is taller... too close to call.

An intense game of The Farming Game... don't ask.
