After a couple of days there, we got in the car and continued to meet Lori and Mackenzie in Vancouver. It was a great vacation. We had fantastic weather the whole time, which makes me love Vancouver. I love how it's so pedestrian friendly and you can tell everyone is active. We rented a really nice condo, so we all had lots of space and there was a kitchen so we could cook some of our own meals too.
The first day Darryl and the boys went to Capilano Suspension Bridge, for those of you who know me well I'm scared of heights, but really only in certain situations. One of those situations would be on a bridge where you can see down. So I stayed with Emma and walked 12km, to find Kits Beach and Davids Tea and the dog beach. Emma loved the dog beach, although she kept drinking the water even though it tasted horrible.
The next day we headed to the aquarium. We put Emma in doggy day care and then headed to Stanley Park and the aquarium. The aquarium was smaller then I remember, but still saw lots of cool stuff. We did have one of those horrible parenting moments in the gift shop after. One of those times when you know other people are looking at you thinking you are not a very good parent - or maybe, the other parents thinking - Oh I feel for you, I've been there too. =)

It was a great vacation. It was fun for us too to see Lori and Mackenzie in Vancouver and make new and fun memories with them.
