We have a history, you see. It was here, in the old Children’s Hospital, that I was born. There are aspects of this place that are definitely a ‘home’ for me. Like the mountains, the sea, beaches, and yes, even the rain. It’s funny, but it feels like it rains differently here than anywhere else.
The kids and I all arrived well and relatively happy (We had one really long 12 hour day. By the end, we all were crying) and quickly made a home here in my mom’s place that she generously offered to share with us. We’ve been doing a lot of relaxing and some fun trips here and there. Our first week here was really hot and sunny. This week has started off rather dismal, but as I said, even the rain seems different here.
We have one more week before we start our trek back to Saskatoon, with one stop in the Okanagan to visit some friends. In the meantime, here are a few highlights.
