I want to start off by saying Happy Belated Birthday to Kristen. We were in Penticton for her birthday so I couldn't post it.
We got back from Penticton last night. It was a great trip. Our trip started off with one nice day for the beach and then a couple of crappy days. On the first crappy day we took one of our three road trips. This was our short one to Kelowna to see the movie Cars. Chris and Taylor got to see the movie but Quinten wouldn't stop babbling so him and I hung out in the lobby. Oh what fun. The next day was crappy also so road trip number 2 down to Spokane, just for the day. A little shopping and little hanging out at this park and then driving back. It was a lot of driving for one day but it was so worth it. Next week was really nice and hot. I was accused of child abuse on one of the beach days. Let me explain. I was trying to get Quinten to sleep so I had him wrapped up in his towel with the hood over his head, to keep the sun off of his face. He was really fighting me so he was screaming. This chick came up and asked if I was a first time mom and what I was doing was child abuse by smothering him. Thank goodness Chris went and said something. I was really shaken by this. Things got better. Some more beaching it and lots of ice cream. Then another not so great day, now it was time for road trip number 3. We went to Vancouver and stayed overnight. We packed a lot into a day and a half. Shopped on Robson St., went to the aquarium, drove through Stanley Park a couple of times, Granville Island, Gas town(There's a story there, I'll explain later) and Canada place. We had so much fun. Taylor loved seeing the big boats, the fish and the seagulls. Who knew they could so interesting?! Then back to Penticton where we did the beach thing some more and went to the water slides twice. And of course more ice cream. On the way home we thought our car was going to break down but we made it home safely. All in all we a had a great time.
Then today Taylor pooped on the potty. She has been asking to use it today. Who knows.
Oh before I forget what kind of post would this be if I didn't have some kind of poop story for you. Taylor had been eating a lot of cherries and black licorice. If you know what those can do to your system you'll understand. I had to wash the sheets and blankets a couple of times. And let me tell you, changing diarrhea poop at the beach, not so fun. And what would a vacation be if we didn't clear out a pool because of poop leaking. This time it was Quinten in the kiddy pool. Good times.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have some pictures to post. I must go catch up on everybody's blogs.
