Family Weekend Part 2

Family Weekend Parks

The last few days my parents were here we explored different parts of the city and got to show them the parks that we frequent. Mom and Dad had a great time playing with Judah on the playground. It was a lot of fun to watch.

We also went down to the area called Gastown and walked around at the waterfront. We got to see the Olympic torch from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. It's the picture below on the bottom left that looks like four big icicles stacked up together. My mom bought Judah a cake pop which he thought was the coolest thing.

Here's a video of us at dinner the last day and Judah recounting our experience whale watching. You can see how big his vocabulary is getting. I love how he says whales.

I don't have to tell you how hard it was saying goodbye again, but we did it and we're still alive! Thanks to the grace of God we all made it to the airport and left without a total breakdown. I'm really close to my parents and going away and taking Judah is by far the biggest sacrifice with this move overseas. I'm thankful to God for technology and the ability to stay in touch more easily than in the past. So, no more goodbyes for now. Instead I'll just say..."Until next time!"

I'm glad you got that time with your parents. Those are good memories for you to hold on to when you miss them so much.
