Looks like we'll be there too! It'll be so nice to see everyone again!

Not sure what we're bringing though...probably something toddler friendly...

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone, too!

DD got all choked up tonight when I told her it was a going away party for three of her 'homeschool friends' . Even though she rarely sees them, she really enjoys their company when they are together. But then she thought about it for a few minutes & said they could keep in touch by e-mail!
I also suggested she would have someone to stay with if she was ever travelling in those parts of the world .

We'll have to exchange e-mails on Friday .

The weather forecast for Burnaby looks promising for the afternoon..

We'll come regardless, although yesterday I was sooooo tired, that my day today is going to be hectic. I tried to drive to the Aquarium, and felt like I could fall asleep! I turned back home, and tried to rest, feeling a migraine brewing...today no migraine!!! :

My potluck contribution might be from Planet Organic, though.

Okay, we're heading out and should be in Vancouver mid-afternoon. I'm bringing some fresh picked Armstrong Cantaloupe!

See you all soon!

We have lots of room inside so it should be OK . More lively-type kids could bring raingear and play outside for part of the time if things get too intense with the kid interactions. No worries about bringing convenience food -- you are what's important.

I have to second that. Thank you so much, Ksenia. DS2 had a wonderful time, and I think dd enjoyed herself, once she warmed up a little. It was great to see everyone - it's been much too long.

M.E.C. is where we usually get ours. If I can find some of Tiegan's handmedowns I'll bring them on Thur.....I'm not sure if I've already passed them on or not, but I'll look! Oh, and there's store upstairs on Granville Island that usually has rain gear and such!!!!!!
