Finally some of our B.C trip..

Well it was so fun to be able to go and visit my sister Renae and be there to support her while she graduated from the Police Academy in Abbotsford..

The first few days prior to her Grad we went into Vancouver, which despite all the insane traffic and the LONG drive, turned out to be a good time. We visited Queen Elizabeth Park, and Granville island, some of the not as popular spots in Vancouver.. but oh well.. we had planned to be coming back on Saturday to do all the best stuff, but then with all the traveling and everything we were all too tired.. so here is just a few pics of our day in Vancouver..

in as well...

Then it was Renae's Graduation,  I was so very proud of her.. they really went all out with all the Marching and the Big pipe band.. Elias got a little scared because it was so loud.. but man he was such a good boy sitting in his stroller for 1.5hr, what a good boy! Renae also receieved the Physical Fitness award for her whole class... i was so impressed! We then took some quick pics and headed out for dinner..

My mom and Elias, love all the blossums..


Our last day, we just kinda hung out in Abbostford , this was supposed to be when we were going to do all the fun things in Vancouver, but it didnt happen so we just went and look at the awesomest houses there.. holy smokes HUGE! and went a nice park and then out for a BBQ at Renae's place.. it turned out to been a nice time, and Elias loved seeing his Auntie Nae!

He absolutely could not get enough of Renae's dogs.. he annoyed them constantly, but
they seem to like the attention..
