We're very excited about our trip to BC in 5 weeks. The kids are just dying to go, and I can't wait to see my family. I was hoping to see some friends while we're there, but I'm not sure if it's going to work out. We have so much planned with the family that I'm not sure how we're going to work it out (Sorry Mama Bear, we'll try work it out, but I'm not sure yet). We'll be leaving here on the 16th, and returning on the 21st. The dog is being kenneled, and I have a friend coming to check on the cats each day.
Our plans for Vancouver are:
Thursday: leave home around 10/10:30 and get to my mom's mid afternoon (this include lunch stops, and a stop at the Seattle Outlet malls to get me a Coach Purse for my birthday)
Friday: We'll be up early early, and are taking the Sky Train into Vancouver. My sister will be our own personal tour guide. We'll go out for lunch, and head back to Mom's for dinner. My sister is planning on coloring my hair Friday night, which I am looking forward to!! I haven't colored my hair since October 1999! She might cut it too if we have time, but I'm not sure I can wait that long. My hair desperately needs a cut.
Saturday: Have a relaxing morning at Mom's house, and then off to my hometown for some sight-seeing fun. We have a bit of shopping to do, and I want to show my hubby and the kids all of my old stomping grounds. I expect that to take quite awhile, there is a lot to see! We're also going to visit my Oma and spend a bit of time with her. I also plan to go visit my Opa's grave. My hubby doesn't understand why I want to, but I would like to see it again. We won't have much time in town on Saturday, because we have to head back to my Mom's early for our date. The man and I are going out for a nice dinner, and we're also going to see Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. That is what I am excited for! We rarely get to go out because we have no sitters close by, so it will be nice to spend some time together.
Sunday: We're having a family bbq at my Aunt & Uncle's place on the lake. That will be an all day thing.
Monday: We're going to see Fort Langley, and do our shopping if we didn't get a chance to on Saturday. We have to go to bed early Monday night because we're leaving EARLY to get back on home on Tuesday. We have to pick up the dog at the kennel by noon, and the kennel is a half hour from our house.
Tuesday: On our way home!
