Vancouver Spring Chill

This spring break we needed to save up money so we didn't go anywhere. We regret that now because it rained so much!!! Sometimes it would get sunny enough to dry the roads and then a big black cloud would roll in and it would drench us as soon as we had been loured out; teased and sent back in. Even though the weather was not ideal I still had a lot of good times with my boys. Here are some memories:

Trying to meet my cousin 
Got a pic
Sent the fake smile back 
Irish boy

Green burrito - Happy St. Patty's Day! 
I got to get together with my dance teacher friends and see all of their kids. That was hectic. There was so much to chat about but it seemed all we did was run after this kid or that. I was proud of us for even trying to get all the kids together with so many different schedules and needs.
Ivy on the right
Mateo saying good night! 
My girls and their babes!  
Toys that make noise stay in the room - Daddy's new rule. 
We sent a lot of pictures to grandma in California. 
We drank a lot of juice - thanks daddy :-)  
Maybe one of my favourite moments - nap time with my boy.
We made some faces 

We swung

Hi Grandma! 
And we get this great one back - no smiles - tough guy. 
Ordered Sam some ammo 
Went skating

Ate some fast food - Taco Time
Mexi Fry! 
We went swimming a lot.  

We sent pictures of new holes to dad. 
We got a picture of auntie Helen and uncle Butch back - happy! 
Planned our patio ideas
Nice patio table. 
Terrible stools though. 
Bananas and cheese 
We went skating again. 

We chilled
Christian fed himself pasta
And brushed his own teeth in the tub. 
Sam went skating 
I planned my next skate shoes. 
And Jonny found Christian's next hat.  
I braided my mullet. 
We helped daddy grocery shop.  

We moved our play table inside and practiced with crayons. 

But mostly made faces at ourselves in the mirror. 
We did the coffee walk a lot. 
And walked home from the park for the first time. 

Dressed up like a horse. 

Daddy took pictures of my shoes and board - documentation.

E Spot
More pictures for grandma in California

They are having more fun than us. 
It is raining again. 
Good morning - last day of spring break… boo hoo! 

The last day of spring break it rained and rained. We went for a swim and walked there in the hail. Then, the sun came out. We went for a tea and a coffee and found Christian and Jonny new hats on sale. We didn't think it would get dry but it did. After dinner we went for a half hour skate and then we walked home along the c wall and got ice cream! Spring break redeemed itself! 
End of spring break new hats!

C wall walk home from E spot - pretty! 
Here is a "quick" video:

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

C-SIDE aka CarrieSIDE

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.

Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 

Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 

Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.

But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
