Vancouver Part 1

It was time again for Anna's Galactosmia check-up at BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver, we go every 6 months. This time was a little bit different as we left home late in the morning instead of the normal 4 am. Because of that late start, the girls were awake for the whole trip and we got to do some sight seeing along the way. Sadly the camera was left in the car for most of it but we did capture some pictures of the girls at Hope slide.

Ivy asking what the sign says, Anna checking out the hole in the post.
Ivy reading what the sign said and Anna still checking out the hole in the post.

Ivy posing and Anna yelling "wait for me!"
Ivy climbing back into the van, she loves posing for the camera.
We stayed at my Brother Rob's place, we had a wonderful visit with his fiance Jamie and son Cam but we didn't see much of Rob as he was working afternoons. Once again the camera wasn't brought out till it was time to go home. Cam grew attached to Mike during our visit, Cam burst into tears when Mike put on his shoes to take our luggage to the van. We all trying to cheer him up but as you see from the picture... it wasn't working!
A kiss from Anna didn't make things better either...Jamie and Rob were shocked Cam was so attached to Mike.
Finally Cam settled down and blew a kiss to his Auntie...
And there were smiles all around!While we loaded up the van, Mike and Rob spotted a raccoon, Mike tracked it down for this shot.
Rob and Jamie's Landlord had a beautiful tulip garden.
We loved the Cherry Blossom trees that lined every street in East Van, so wonderful seeing it rain pink petals!
Anna's appointments went well, as usually. She tested above her age (again) during the Occupational Therapy and will no longer need to followed by OT. The therapist did suggest we find Anna some shoes with a high arch as she has her daddy's flat feet. Her diet is good and her G1P levels are coming back down!! March's blood work isn't back from the lab in Manitoba yet, but we are all hoping they will show a downward trend too. Anna is still on the 10% curve for her age in height and weight and she is finally over 30lbs!! So it's all good, we continue with blood work every 2 months till her levels steady out and come back in the fall. And that's that!
I'll post some more pictures of our jaunt up to Bridal Falls in a few days.
