Oh Canada.

We had a nice few days away this past week.  It was fun getting to use our passports, feeling all "urban" again & strolling around a city we hadn't been to since kids came into the picture, Vancouver.  A big thank you to J's parents for letting us use their timeshare points!!!

We hit the aquarium at Stanley Park (apparently the biggest aquarium in Canada), toured the city & the waterfront, found some swings, bought our traditional caramel apple, swam in the pool, shopped Robson Street, bought our Starbucks city mug, drove by the Olympic Village from the 2010 Winter Olympics, watched snow flakes pour down & of course bought a few crepes... (HELLO Nutella/banana crepe - happy new year to me!!!)

Surprisingly, not many remnants left of the Olympics... little disappointed...

This is where all the athlete's stayed - they're now condos...
