We had a great time. The girls did well on the trip considering they both got very little sleep due to late nights and early wakenings. Both girls got a high fever on the trip, with Lauren landing in the emergency department in Vancouver diagnosed with croup. Steve went fishing with the boys and caught a poisonous rock fish, while the real fishermen in the family reeled in 20lb salmon. Lauren and Kayla enjoyed their first ride in a double stroller and their first 4D movie at the Vancouver aquarium, Kayla showed no fear of heights at Capilano on the suspension and tree top bridges and I scored $13 nike shoes for Lauren at the Seattle outlets, climbed Grouse mountain in the pouring rain and got fed food for the first time by Lauren. Lauren walked everywhere in Vancouver (literally), and was all smiles for everyone on the trip even when she was sick and coughing. We celebrated the milestones of Kayla and Lauren's great grandpa's 90th birthday and their grandma's 60-something birthday. We also celebrated the inchstones of Lauren taking more steps, Kayla eating the entire cucumber maki roll (cucumber, rice and seaweed), Lauren blowing kisses (sometimes!), and Kayla saying grace at the table before we had our dinner. It was great to see and spend time with the family and we look forward to doing it again soon.
