A fun weekend

Stan and I went to Vancover Washington this weekend to see Tricia, Dave and the boys. We had so much fun together. Since Tricia has a very small house, we opted for a motel this time instead of sleeping on the floor. That was a very good idea. Ben and Cooper came over and went swimming with Papa while Tricia and I hit a few stores. I like to shop down there, it is a sales tax thing. First we went to Old Navy, did not find anything. We decided to go down south of Portland to Washington Square but we took a wrong turn so we just got ourselves re-oriented and headed off to Lloyds Center. What a mistake. It looks like the gangs have taken that mall over. We beat a hasty retreat and headed back north to Vancover. Made a stop at Kohls and Target. I was actually looking for a birthday present for Cooper. He wants Cowboy things. Finally found something at Target. We headed back to the motel and gave Cooper his birthday present. We then went out to Birthday Dinner at Burgerville and back to the motel. Dave came over for a few minutes after he got off work, then he and Tricia went home leaving the boys with us. In the morning the boys and I went downstairs to the Continental breakfast. YUK!!! The boys enjoyed it though, then it was off for another dip in the pool before their parents came back. After we checked out, we went to Tricia's until Dave left for work and then the five of us headed back to Washington Square. Dear, dear Papa ( did I ever tell you he rocks?) once again took the boys and Tricia and I had a couple of sweet hours going through the stores. It was great. I actually did not buy anything and I really "wanted" to. Then it was back home where Ben built this Magnificent Nativity set for a Lego contest. I think the winner gets a cruise for his family. We left Vancover at 6:30 pm for the drive home. It took a little longer than usual, because of the Thanksgiving traffic, but we were home by 10:30 pm.
This coming weekend it is off to Bremerton to see Kris and Joe and their boys.

We'll be in Sequim for Christmas. How far do you live from there? Just curious as you're talking about all the places my in-laws travel.

It was a great weekend!! Thank you.
I loved being able to walk through the mall with you without having to tell my kids to stop being so obnoxious.

And of course the sweet potatoe fries rocked!

Thank you so much, it was the best weekend I've had in a long time!!!

Man, I was hoping to get to meet you in person. You are such a beautiful lady inside and out. Thank you for all you do. Thanks for telling me where you live. I'll glance across the water and think of you this holiday season.

It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Those memories made with you and Papa at the hotel will be treasures to your grandchildren!

When are you going to come stay with me and let Pops walk through the mall with MY kids?

You should totally meet up with Frizzy at some place on thier way through. Kat says Applebees is the place to do it.
