We have a family tradition of going to Vancouver. With Grandpa John rallying through 20 days in I.C.U. we needed to all celebrate his 5th or something life.
We’re spoiled brats and have friends that loan us a place to stay on the West end with an amazing view and Stanley Park just a hop away on the Seawall trail.
Jeffrey’s Mom was ear to ear smiles with both her grandchildren AND her husband around. Us kids were just gravy.
With built in babysitters, Jeffrey and I plus his brother and girlfriend were footloose and fancy free for three evenings in a row.
Of course there was a child to entertain or maybe it was the other way around.
Granville Island is worth the trip if you are in Vancouver.
We always make a run to the market for lunch supplies and a new toy.
Found one of
my Roan’s favorite books. If you have little kids make sure to check out ‘The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash’ on Scholastic Video. It has this story so well told and my Roan’s other favorite ‘Shrinking Violet.’
There is also a fabulous jewelry store on the island where my hubby got me this great necklace as a gift years ago. I always wear it when we go.
Quilt ideas were born.
I finished up a binding on Ethan’s zig zag quilt on the drive home (there’s a whole story that goes with that) . Hoping to post it in the next few days and start quilting Ella’s quilt. The backing is already pieced. I LOVED the backing and binding on Ethan’s so much I ordered more for a quilt for Roan.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
