Post 67 ~ New Laptop!!

Oh Yay! I'm special now! Bloggin with my Laptop!

I'm still learning the ins and outs of this Dell Laptop, specially with Windows Vista but I'm getting there. I had a hard time keeping Mike away from it the first few days, he was helping with window up grades etc. but now he just looks over my shoulder and asks hows it going. I bet he thinks I'm gonna crash it any minute! HA I'm better then that!....I hope! :D

Trip to Vancouver went well, Anna's doing well. her nest appointment in 6 months will involve lots of tests: x-rays, physio, ears and eyes etc. Saw a surgeon for Anna's lump and he wants to remove it which we were expecting, so now we are just waiting for a date for the surgery, Hopefully it won't be for awhile as we are all tired of traveling.

While in Vancouver we stayed with my Brother Robert and his Girlfriend Jamie Lee (sorry forgot to take pics)

We went to the Stanley park Aquarium Girls loved it, as did Mike and I once we got over the $25 admission prices (per adult!!)

We also got to see my Bro James and his Partner Lisa and new baby Bella! She is soooo cute, she has James's Dimple!

After Vancouver we drove to the Cariboo via the Fraser Canyon, Girls loved the tunnels (all 7 of them) When the first one approached I pretended we were going to hit the mountain and Mike played along saying "brace yourselves" and we started to fake scream! The girls were afraid and started screaming too but soon started to laugh as we went into the tunnel and thus we started the tradiction of screaming in tunnels! Thanks goodness there are no tunnels around us or the fun would soon turn into a headache!

Spent 2 nights at my Dad's, only got to visit with him and Cody as the girls are fighting with Dad and Sharon was in Vancouver with her Mom.

While at the Ranch on Saturday we rode the Quads around the hay fields and it was so cold that the girls and I were wearing 2 coats each and winter toques but that didn't last long. When we got to the lake the sun came out and the girls stripped down to their panties and diaper and had a blast playing in the water and sand. (forgot to take pictures again)

Ivy has started Kindergarten! and of course loves it even though she was nervous and wanted me to go with her. She got on the bus fine and sits with her friend Owen who is even more nervous of school then she.

Wow! Great pics-- the end of August keeps us all so busy! Good to hear everything went well in Van, though I was sorry to miss you. I would love to come visit 'sometime'... but these days, who knows when 'sometime' might be!

Oh yeah-- I was eating a peanut butter and raw onion sandwich a couple weeks ago, and thinking of you. Do you still eat them? Yummmm.
