Well the man and I have talked, and we decided to only go up to BC for 3 full days. It gets a bit stressful visiting my mother, lol, so he wants to keep it short and sweet.
Our plan is to get up there day 1 and leave our house early enough in the morning so we get to mom's house about 4PM. Day 2 will be spent traipsing around Vancouver. We're going to go on the Sky train, perhaps see the Sea Wall, and just have fun, long day. Day 3 we will be going to White Rock in the morning and then go have lunch somewhere. We'll have a bit of a relaxing afternoon, and then my husband and I will go out on our date. Day 4, will be in my hometown. We'll visit my Oma, go to Karl's (local Dutch store), go show the kids and my husband where I went to school, do a bit of shopping etc etc. And we'll have to plan a visit to see Mama Bear, lol. And Day 5, we will leave for WA bright and early! We will be leaving July 16th, which is my 29th birthday, and coming back on the 21st. And I think my brother and I will be having a joint birthday something-or-other together, if he can make it back home from Ottawa.
Short and sweet.
