So, my sisters and brother in law leave us a message on our phone a couple of months ago... saying they were coming to visit in June, they had bought us all tickets to Coldplay in Vancouver, and that we owed them some money. Needless to say, it was well worth the $... one of the best nights ever. Here we are, as excited as can be, on the road to Coldplay.
We had great seats. Row 13 on the side...
After opening acts, 2 hours of Coldplay, and 4 hours of awesome music--- I sustained minor hearing loss...it only lasted a few hours :)
Well, it's been about three months since my last post-- let's just say it's been a busy 3 months!! We sold our condo, bought a house, moved twice, I had surgery-- finally we've had some time to enjoy the HOT weather we've had here in BC. Last weekend we caught the Saturday early morning ferry to Vancouver Island. We had a great weekend visiting with friends and relaxing! Caleb was particularly excited about the big boat-- Here we are 6:30 in the morning-- Caleb all smiles as we left Horseshoe Bay...
I attempted to put these pictures in chronological order-- but gave up. Here's what we did in Saskatchewan over Christmas (in random order):
Once we got to Saskatoon (our 3 hour flighted ended up being more like 12) we spent a week and a half with my family on the farm.
Caleb had his first ride(s) on the quad. He is a boy through and through. Cars, trucks, tractors... anything that drives is his favorite. Needless to say, he loved the quad.
The view from the house:
Even though it was -40... it was still warm enough to goof off on the quad!
Caleb was very excited to have his first tour of my uncle's dairy farm:
Doug and I celebrated our birthdays over the holidays... even though they were in 2 different years!
Goofing off for the camera...
Caleb spent many fun-filled hours with Papa-- his favorite person in the world. Probably about 10 times a day you could find them in the garage looking at Papa's truck.
Opening gifts. Caleb opened them all himself. He ripped it apart piece by piece, throwing every bit of paper to the floor before starting on the next. Yes, he is definitely a lefty! Taking after mom...
One of the baby calves having his dinner...
Smiling for the camera.
Guitar hero anyone?
What would you say if I told you that each of these cows have their own waterbed? It sounds crazy, but it's true. For real.
Checking out the sheep in Papa's barn. Yes, it's as cold as it looks. It was -40 out, but Caleb didn't complain. He was too excited about the animals-- that and he had about zero exposed skin.
And, once again-- another 12 hours in the airport on the way home.
That was our vacation. To sum it up-- cold, furry, airports, family, and definitely worth it!
