O Canada

Our President's Day weekend up north

We headed north today to spend a few days in British Columbia. Grandma and Grandpa are joining us on our three day adventure. As they have the largest vehicle, with plenty of legroom it is our chosen ride for the trip. After packing up the "chariot" we are off.

We arrived at the Peace Arch border and passed the 45 minute wait with homemade brownies, taking pictures and family conversation.

Driver was in Canada, passengers in US

Once through, we drove into Vancouver and found our hotel. With not much on the schedule we had time to explore a bit and plan for tomorrow. And, of course, find dinner.
We drove the loop around Stanley Park, and stopped at Prospect Point to take in the view, which included admiring a horse.

the horse was getting as much attention as the view
Dinner was in North Vancouver at Eastside Mario's. We hadn't been to this location before. It's a lovely waterfront restaurant with view of downtown. Oooooo! Ahhhhhh!
Dinner was Yum and the roving magician was wonderful - great with the kids. She finished up our dinner with balloon animals to take home, what could be better?
Tim Horton's for dessert! Tim's was our last stop of the night and my undeniable love for the Honey Cruller was satisfied... at least for today ;)
Tomorrow to the Aquarium and drive to Harrison Hot Springs.
