Okay, maybe it’s just ‘visitor’, but it’s still exciting all the same. My mom came out and visited a little while ago and here are some highlights of being with her and her being with the kids and the kids being happy and so on.

There are these parks just by the side of the road in Vancouver and we stopped at one. Some of us ran, some of us played Grandma’s iPhone and some of us tried our best to eat the flowers. I’ll let you figure out who tried to do what.

The view from the park.

We went to Granville Island in Vancouver which isn’t a real island, yet feels like an island! Except without the palm trees and beaches…you know, it actually didn’t feel too much like an island. But it was fun!

You see, they’re open 0900 to 1900 every day! So, that’s 9:00 to 7:00 (but, I mean, I had to count on my fingers just now because I’m not in the military and I’m not from Canada. I also don’t speak French).

It is, actually, a market. with vegetable and bakeries and candy stores. It’s a very cool place to see and shop at.

Is this not a proud-looking, robust bird who is likely to find a mate? Look at those colors! Hm, yeah, so I do take pictures of birds and I like them and there might be a post on them sometime in the future, for all of those who are ornithologically-inclined.

Somedays are longer for three year olds than others.

We also went berry picking, but that’s a post for a different day because it was so neat. So, thanks, Mom, for coming out and visiting us! See you soon! (and by soon, you know, about 5 more weeks).
