British Columbia Day


We have wanted to go to Canada for about 3 years and we finally went! First we had to have a birth certificate for each of the kids and we both needed to have an extended license. Crossing the border was no big deal, the wait to cross was about 15 minutes and it went very smoothly.

Molly was being so silly! All the kids were excited to be "international explorers!"

I loved the names of the little cities and freeways along the way. "King George Hwy" and such. Adorable! :)

We stopped at an organic gelato bar and the little girls picked Orange cycles. I've never had gelato before... yum! :)

"I feel like the von trap family singers!"
So Jerry held the little girls hands and the boys followed and Mae and Iris were in the double stroller. We heard many people continue to say, "SIX!" long after we had passed by.

Mae happened to turn 6 months old today. She loved walking around Vancouver in the stroller.

An electric car! I've never seen one in person, so it made us giggle. There was a parking lot full of "plug ins".

We found an awesome park on the roof of a parking garage. I loved the city!
