Fun in the Fraser Valley







The kids and I just got back from a fun filled week in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. We decided to go and visit my sis Heather and family who just moved into their new house a couple of months ago. Also, we hadn't yet met my niece Violet who is now three months old. Sadly, I don't even have a picture of her cause my camera broke right before I was going to take her pic. She is a cutie though and I'll post her picture another time.
We went to the Vancouver Game Farm one day which the kids LOVED. Their favorite part was getting to see the lions and tigers eat their meaty lunch.
Most of all though, it was great to visit with my sister and her family as well as some of our good friends from Abbotsford. The boys were so excited to drive by the condo, Isaiah's old school and the hospital where they were born. Brennan said, "Mom, I really am a true Abbotsforder!"
While we were gone, Christian and his parents were working hard taking down all the interior parts of the cottage. I know they got a lot more done with us gone, but I did feel guilty at least once for having so much fun ;)
Now we're back to our sweet little trailer. The only horrible part is that Isaiah now has the runs and Brennan and Abby spent our first night home throwing up. I guess we picked up the flu somewhere (probably Adventure Zone, hey Rachel?) Everyone is still not completely back to normal. I've made too many trips already to the laundry mat to wash sheets and blankets. Yuck!!!

Jenn it was great to see you too! I love that fact that we can remain great friends even though we don't see each other that often. The boys talked about Isaiah, Brennan and Abby for a few days after A.Z. They had a great time playing with them.
I am really sorry to hear that your kids are down with some virus...that sucks! Be sure to hook up that washer in the field, so you can keep up with all that laundry!!!

Hi Jenn, thanks for the lovely comment on my blog.
I enjoy reading yours as well. I am looking forward to watching the progress on your house, as I am sure you are too :)

Thanks anonymous!

Yah, Kori, I'm looking forward to something actually starting around here!!

Rachel, I can't hook the washer up in our feild cause it needs a special plug. Too bad!! I'm sick with the flu now and have been throwing up since 3am. Starting to feel slightly better, but hope this stops soon...

Are you doing better today, Jenn?

Jenn said...

Yes, I'm much better today. Thank God! That was a violent, horrible flu. I hope Christian doesn't get it!
