happenings north of the border...

it was quick but it was fun! mom, the kids and i made a trip to surrey to pick up cousin taylor, who will be staying with us for a week. tuesday i made a trip to vancouver (solo) via skytrain. what a privilege! i was so enjoying my americano and book that i made a complete mess of the trip home. what should have taken 45 minutes took nearly 2 hours. all the better as i came really close to finishing my book! ryan was on the road this week and his work took him to lynden, just 10 minutes south of the border. he was able to pop up for a quick lunch. uncle ron kicked my butt on our five mile early morning run down to the beach and back. i am certain that he is simply more accustomed to being up at 5:30 a.m. yep! that must be it. :-) thanks to dan and carol for a very "good" time, as usual. it was the best burger i've had in a while with carol's special garlic spread, sauteed onions and sour cream. yum!
