Life just seems to get so busy at times, then add a long weekend and we are exhausted!!
We were on the Island on the long weekend, yes we were crazy enough to try catching a ferry on the apparently busiest long weekend of the year. We did well on our way over, we only had to get up at 3:45am shower get ready and take the sleeping kiddos to the van by 4:30am and head to the ferry terminal. We picked up groceries and snacks in Coombs, Baby I loves the goats on the roof so we had to visit them again. B loves the bookstore and S also thinks the goats are funny. Luckily we caught the ferry and were on our way to Hornby Island. We got a chance to visit up on the higher part of the island and the views are breathtaking! B and I were watching the fish and the so many kinds of starfish. It was so cool B said. B had so much fun outside on one of the ferries, the wind was crazy and the water was splashing over the sides, Stel and I were out with him and we all got soaked but he had so much fun. We enjoyed some beautiful scenery, some insane winds and rain and some very encouraging appointments.
On our way home we stopped in Parksville and B and Baby I played mini golf, then Stel, S and B went in the bumper boats. S was so excited, he laughed and squealed - he was happier than we've seen in a very long time. They all got soaked but had so much fun! We then headed to Nanaimo, we visited my Auntie Pearl. We then headed to the ferry terminal to wait 4 1/2 hours to catch a ferry and got home just in time to collapse into our beds! The alarm clock rang far to soon this morning. We had a very successful Happy Thanksgiving long weekend, hope you did too.
