BC Holiday: Day 9

My dad always wakes up early and has some morning yerba mate. Calvin loves that he can be a part of this! Victor probably will one day too.6 collage 1 The rest of the morning was once again spent outside. Calvin got to go kayaking with Grandpa and Victor had a turn at the tire swing, which he loved!6 collage 2 That afternoon, I picked up Michelle and we headed off to the island. I was originally going to go on Monday morning all on my own, but it worked out that we could go at the same time on Sunday, and how wonderful it was to have an extra pair of hands! When we got to her place that evening, Calvin right away made himself useful and watered the flowers.6 collage 3For the next days’ post, click the link below this post.

BC Holiday: Day 8

Saturday was a relaxing day for the most part. We hung out outside when it wasn’t raining, and took a bunch of photos in an old apple tree that has fallen down but lives on.5 collage 1 Calvin wanted to eat the apple Victor was playing with, but found out that unfortunately, it was still a little sour.5 collage 2 That evening Victor and I attended Amy’s bridal shower/bachelorette! It was a little colder than we expected, and we were rained out of the outdoors for part of it, but it was lots of fun and Victor saw a couple other aunties for the first time since Christmas!5 collage 3For the next days’ post, click the link below this post.

BC Holiday: Day 7

Friday morning I had the chance to hang out with another best friend of mine, Christine! It’s always exciting to hear what’s going on in her life.4 (3)After that, I brought Tim to the ferry so he could go bachelor-partying all weekend long with the boys, and I went with my parents to the family cabin on Hatzic Lake. I love the quiet there, and I knew that Calvin would have a blast with all the space to run around. Both boys got to go on the ride on mower with Grandpa, which is a kind of rite of passage at the cabin. Then Calvin tried out the tire swing!

BC Holiday: Day 6

On this day, I had a lovely visit with one of my best friends, Megan. I got to meet her little guy for the first time!

It was fun to have Roxie, who cut my hair throughout my childhood, do his first cut. He sat nice and still!3 (7)For the next days’ post, click the link below this post.

BC Holiday: Day 4

On Canada Day, we, my parents, and my brother’s family went to the festivities at the Langley Events Center. It was hot, and crowded, and we left to have lunch at McDonald’s instead of eating from the various food trucks and stands.1 collage 1 1 collage 2 When we got home, we hung out in the sunshine and also inside. It was fun to teach my nieces some new games! 1 collage 3Everybody stuck around for supper, and my Oma and her husband also came out!

BC Holiday: Day 3

Monday, my mom, sister and I went to IKEA in the morning. You can tell how excited Victor was by the blurs.30 (1) In the afternoon, I went and hung out at Rosie’s place. We picked some of her delicious raspberries.30 (3) And Victor tried to make friends with her cats.30 (9)For the next days’ post, click the link below this post.

BC Holiday: Day 2

Sunday was a family day for us. My entire family, with the exception of my nephew, went to the zoo to enjoy some animals and eachother’s company.

My brother, Nathan, with his daughter, Anna.  My sister, Rosie with Victor. Tim with Calvin.

Animals, animals, animals!

The best part of the visit was the hippo feeding time. Those guys are enormous!

The hippo feedings were the best part of the trip for me.

And more of Calvin of course.

When we got home later, we had a light dinner together, and Calvin spent the evening playing “yocca” with “gampa”.29 (42)
