Signing and filling out our declaration card for Customs to get into Canada...this makes is official!!
Checking out Aunt Amy's jewelry!!
Watching the sea lion show at the Edmonton Mall...for any of you out there who like to shop--they have over 800 stores with an attached hotel!! We couldn't believe the size of this place! There was an official size ice hockey rink, a waterpark, a miniature golf course (Uncle Joshy would LOVE IT) and a little lake running through the middle...absolutely incredible!

Ice Hockey Rink
Olympic statue on a corner in Strathcona (about 20 minutes from Edmonton). Found several new things from jewelry to souvenirs in this little town!

On the flight, they offered complimentary snacks...these little biscotti cookies were a hit!!

Reading to mommy and Baby Baby


Okay, so I am trying to figure out how to change the font color to match the new background and I can't!! Hopefully soon I will remember since it has been quite awhile from the last blog post!!
We arrived safe and sound from a WONDERFUL two-week vacation in Canada and words can't even express how thankful we are to Grandma and Grandpa Brinkmeyer for organizing it and making it happen!! Kayin and I were able to meet some family members for the first time and we definitely made a lot of memories!!
I know many people who read this enjoy the videos of pictures, but most of you relish in the single pictures with descriptions! So, with that, I am going to be doing a series of posts about the vacation. With over 200 pictures to choose from, there is no possible way to include all of them unless I do a short slideshow for one of the posts (which I might do if I can remember how to put one together).
The first part is at the Fletcher household!! We made it just in time for a Toad themed birthday party!!
N with his HUGE bullfrog!!
Someone is missing from this picture!!

Having Aunt Jessi pain my nails before vacation!

Swinging with N on the swingset

Look at all these toads!! I believe the boys caught most of them behind their house at the lake!
