Vancouver -Stanley Park

Jon took Friday off since Sam was on Spring break. We checked the forecast last weekend to see what day would be the best to go to Canada for the day. The weather man was right on. It was pretty clear and high 50's! I havent been to Stanley park since I was a kid. Simply beautiful! I think this will be one of our favorite places. It's only about an hour away. It was the first time though in my life that the American dollar was worth less then the Canadian. Our $80 was only worth $73.60 at the old Spaghetti Factory! Crazy...let's hope this economy turned around (but this isnt a blog for politics)
Samantha really wanted me to take a picture of her under the trees...

it was just so pretty and ducks too

in front of the Vancouver Aquarium which we are now members of...

Jelly fish!

Nemo and Dory!

In the Amazon...super warm in there, lot's of butterflies and birds!

they had these cool little orbs that you could look into and feel like you are in there with the fishies

another picture she wanted me to little model!

playing Vet!

"Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea,
swim so wild
swim so free..."
Sydney could stay and watch for hours if we let her...

It's Santa!

Dora and Diego and catch the Robot Butterfly in the Amazon Rainforest in 4 D!
it was really cool, there were bubbles, the seats shook, water sprayed, and we smelled the banana Boots peeled!

It was a super fun day! Looking forward to heading up there again in the near future. It's nice to be near a fun big city. It kinda reminds me of San Francisco. There were a ton of people out and about enjoying the day!
