Out of the house all day

Long day - we are just back! I drove Allan to work this morning and then came back to pick up Beth and the 5M's. The itinerary:

  • Vancouver Aquarium (For 3 hours catching 3 shows and seeing most of the exhibits!)
  • A sight-seeing drive around Stanley Park (while the twins napped)
  • Sightseeing drive around and about Vancouver including through Chinatown
  • Lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory
  • Walking around Gastown and seeing the steam clock
  • Walking around the mall in Langley
  • Kids riding the rides in the mall lots because we happened to be there when the guy was collecting the $ and testing the rides
  • Getting bubble Tea
Now I'm heading off to a finance committee meeting. The kids are eating leftover food from the Spaghetti Factory and drinking leftover bubble tea smoothies. Auntie Bethie has to do laundry and start packing for her trip home early Sunday morning. Daddy will bathe the M's and they will go to bed early - it's been a long day.

Tomorrow will be even longer -- we'll be cooking and cleaning for Sabbath and the twins' birthday party Saturday night.

The sad part was Beth's camera battery died and so did mine. I had spares BUT only three spare batteries - we lost a rechargeable AA battery somewhere along the way. So most of the day didn't get documented.
