Our last day at home...

Our last Saturday at home before our Maiden Voyage...
We spent some time at Bear Creek Park with Grammy Sue.

Sierra so proud that this year she is big enough to climb this big girl" slide all by herself.
This is how Sierra thinks you "walk a dog!"
Aayla is becoming a little monkey herself :)
We enjoyed a nice walk, seeing the new Spring blooms and playing at the playground despite my not feeling well, and despite the wind as even though the sun was was chilly!!!

 From here we went home to finish packing as on Sunday we left for our Maiden Voyage, all over the States and Canada.

After selling our business last fall, we made the choice that it was now or never!  We wanted to take a full year but with Sierra starting school in the fall; we need to be home in September for that so 4 1/2 months will just have to do! I will post here periodically along our journey when things come up but the main focus of the trip will be my other blog at:

Feel free to follow along to see where we are and what we are up to. I am sure that many adventures await us and I look forward to the fall with more crafty tutorials to come. Until then...

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you!

A NEW hair salon for kids in town!

I just wanted to give a shout out to a local hair salon for kids. It opened a couple of months ago but we finally just checked it out last week and got a very overdue trim! I forgot to take my camera but got a couple poor shoots on my phone.

We used to drive to Granville Island to a little salon there but this place is sooooo much closer, more reasonably priced and the $20 fee even included getting their nails done.

So If you live near Surrey I would highly recommend 
if your little ones are in need of a trim.

Along with the Thomas train, and Barbie jeep there was also a Car from Cars to sit in, each with their own individual movie screen and player. As well there were 3 other chairs with larger TV's and Nintendo's I think for older kids...hey what kids wouldn't love to get their hair cut here!

They also have a room for birthday parties, with dress up clothes, make up stations and even a small stage for karaoke! So if you need a hair cut...go check them out!

Fun in the sun...and in the hail

Tynehead Park close to our house has recently expanded and opened up a new perimeter trail around a new section of the park so we decided today was the day to load up the kids bikes and go for a ride.

Sierra giving her 2 wheeler a try...she has been very apprehensive up until today but she did awesome and was so excited to be riding her 2 wheeler!

I can't help but stop to admire the fresh new growth. I love the ferns popping out of the trees

Then off for some fun at a local playground

Hard to see and out of focus as it was a far way away and I only had my point and shoot but there is a heron in her nest...I will go back soon with my Canon Rebel and see if I can get some better pictures

 Shortly after returning home...the hail starts

In a matter of minutes the ground was white...some weird and wacky April weather that's for sure!

Testing out this new format with blogger...who knows how long it has been available but I just discovered it :) So sorry if this one is a bit lopsided, I'll get the hang of it soon enough!
