Together with Steph's daughters, Saskia and Tasha, Auntie Jean and Steph came over to visit and see the new house, another endorsement of our designs and choices that goes along way to making the place seem more like a home. Thank you so much for making the trip!
All the girls off for an adventure! Granville Island and then the putt-putt boat over to Science World! Don't be fooled by F's shyness in this picture: she actually got up on stage as a volunteer at one of the SW demonstrations! Catapulted a rubber chicken!
Beautiful day for it! I was taking these photos as I drove. Anybody who lives here knows how spectacular spring is in Vancouver because of those mountains. They take your breath away.
On Granville Island, Katie got to take everybody to her favourite store, the rock and gem store, where kids can buy little zip-lock bags and fill them with little gems. Of course, they have to be cleaned and organzied after.
Then Aunt Jean and Steph and the girls came back for a house tour and dinner: take-out Indian food back at the duplex. The girls had their own picnic table. The cousins sure had fun together!
And Jean gave the girls a bubbly apple cider to toast our new home tonight.
...and something a little stronger for Mom and Dad, something we're really going to appreciate by about 10 o'clock tonight, I'm sure!
