Vegas Anni-Birth-Versery - 40th Edition

Day 1 - Wednesday
Vancouver - Seattle - Las Vegas - and surprise! Mom and Pops are in town for the 40th celebration!! Thank-you!

First beer at the Canuck Restaurant at YVR. 

This toy area looked boring but was very entertaining and you could stroller up to it - hours of entertainment for a kid. 

On flight one from Vancouver to Seattle - up and down. 

Seattle on the train to N gate. 

Final distraction is the iPad. His little fingers kept sliding the game over or messing it up someway. There must me something in the settings to prevent this from happening. 

 First thing you do - is check out the spot. See boy - this is where we will be tomorrow. 
 And hydrate - drink lots of water! 

 Don't go to the Irish pub and get Irish nachos = suck! Kettle chips with sauce. They got paid for and not eaten. Nasty! 
Do - go to Ross - Don't - always expect Ross to have all the clothes you will need for the trip.

Day 2 - Las Vegas - Skate - Swim - PARTY! Asleep by 9:30!! haha

Jonny's mexican mush breakfast - the first time was green and the second was red. Nice view though. 

New shirts - and hoodie.

Time for a bucket of beer. We need it for the ice! 

Mom and Pops ate at the  Eiffel tower and then met us at Planet Hollywood. 

 Then we went to the bird sanctuary at the Flamingo.


 We couldn't have ended the evening off better this! Elevator ride with KISS.

Day 3 - It's My Birthday! Swim - Birthday Breakfast - Nap - Walk to Fashion Mall - Taxi to Downtown - Skate Contest - The Golden Nugget and quick exit! (Literally)

Breakfast burrito! 

Pirate ship is getting some work done. 

Back for another bucket of Buds! 

Mean Muggin'

Down Town Vegas - heading to the skate comp. Jonny borrowed some pics from IG of the comp. 

Na na na na na na na na na naaaaaa
Eat fish with fish
Or just the free bread.

Day 4 - Skate - Swim - Good bye to Mom and Pops - Read by the pool - Chill Day! 

Daddy came swimming! 
 What? When was this? What an angel.. hahha
 This looks like what I am doing right now - computering.

Smooshy face

Day 5 - Skate - Swim - Read by the pool - No Steak and Crab!

Underwater baby butt.

He is standing on his skateboard (on the carpet)
 Laundry basket and ice bucket games.

New York New York no longer had their steak and crab deal - so we went to the Outback - they didn't have crab either. I guess we will have to hit the Crab Pot on the way to Venice Beach.

Day 6 - Las Vegas - Vancouver 

 We love this couch :-)
 The boy loves this phone.

We missed Yolandi at the airport by an hour!! boo!! I know we will kick ourselves for not going to the show Thursday - but hey - we got to go to Vegas! 
 The boy loved sleeping in his own bed - he didn't want to get up. Poor lamby is getting squished.
More birthday presents for me when I got home from school on Tuesday - SPOILED!! Thank-you my love!

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.

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.
