rat-a-tat holiday ending

It's been happening so quickly I have to use bullets and I'm probably not remembering all of it.

In the past few days we

  • Saw my brother Mike, his wife Emily and their four beautiful children, in town from Prince Rupert. Their baby Daniel is amazing, and eldest son James (7) explained the basics of Facebook to me. Sara and Katie are lovely girls. It's been a while since we've seen them, or Michael and Emily, so it was a good reunion.
  • Discovered there's a s 10 Thousand Villages Store in Port Coquitlam.
  • Went out for supper with Andy, Fiona and Alex.
  • Celebrated Alex's service award and excellent performance review at his summer job. They have already invited him back for next year's fair, and invited him to a banquet honouring great workers (there will be prizes!)
  • Visited the historic cannery in Steveston Village.
  • Met Michele and Brent's new puppy, Jackson. He is a cutey, and Sienna is getting used to her new "brother" just fine.
  • Got Alex his parking pass for the high school student parking lot.
  • Participated in the online forum launching the Mary Novik's Conceit and Gail Anderson Dargatz's Turtle Valley.
We have two days left before the end of the long weekend. Then it's back to work and school. We have a few more adventures to enjoy. Fiona and Shannon will perform today in the Parade of Champions at the PNE. I'm going to the new Thundering Word Heard tonight. Tomorrow we'll get together with Mom and Dad, and Emily and Mike and their family (including Emily's parents and her sister and brother-in-law and their children) for a giant table at dim sum.

Our vacation has been wonderful. Staying home was the best choice we could have made. It will be good to get back to work and have a bit of a rest!

question: how much fun can you fit into two weeks at home?
