holiday happy-snaps








Hello! I've missed you all! (The occasional post from far away is just not the same)

We arrived home yesterday afternoon, and are all in pretty good shape today. I have phoned my friends, chatted to my mum, slept in my own bed (ahhhh), and patted the dog. All is right with the world!

I thought I would post some trip photos (Lake Louise, Butchart gardens in Victoria, sea otter from Vancouver aquarium)... hope you like them.

Yay, you're back! And with photos (and hopefully stories) to share. I've missed you!!

Glad you made it back home safe from your adventures.

Like a breath of fresh air, you swing back into our lives bearing stories and pictures of an adventure.

I hope you are all okay, although probably a bit jet-lagged and breathless, a lot tired of living out of suitcases and eating "different" food, but in the end glad to be home.

Glad you made it safely home again and it is always nice to be able to sleep in your own bed again...there is nothing like your own bed to settle down in for the night. I'm sure the dog has also missed you very much as well and was beside himself to have his masters back home again.

Lake Louise looks sooo cold with all the snow caps and Butchart gardens I bet was REALLY beautiful in person. I'm sure the kids really enjoyed the aquarium and that cute little otter.

Once your settled in back home, I bet you'll start planning your next great adventure. *S*

I can't wait to hear more about your trip and I'm sure you have oodles of pictures to sort out and decide which you'd like to post.

Hugs
Sandy :)

How nice to have you back! Love your pictures! I'll bet you saw some really beautiful sights.
Isn't that a l-o-n-g flight?
Can't wait to hear your stories. Glad you're all well and happy :) Bet your mom is glad to see you all...or hear you, at least.

We all missed you so much! I am glad you had a nice time. One of the nicest parts of a long vacation is coming home to your own bed. I look forward to hearing all about the trip.

Great pics Jelly.
I went to Buschart Gardens when I was a kid. It was beautiful there.

Heather said...

I have the exact same pic of the sunken garden at Butchart Gardens. Wasn't it absolutely beautiful?

Lake Louise!!??? You were practically down the road from me!!! But I was in the U.S.
I am sure you don't come to Canada too often but if you ever do again give me a call. I would gladly drive to Lake Louise to meet ya!

Welcome back! Glad you are in 'pretty good shape' after your trip, I think I would require a few days to rest up from the vacation. Looking forward to more pics, so we can live vicariously through you!

That water looks soooo cool!!

Val said...

Butchart Gardens!!! Turning green with envy!

Glad you're back, Jelly.

Lake Louise...*sigh* I hope you made it to Moraine Lake too...there's this song by a Canadian band called Blue Rodeo (my favourite band in the world)..it's called 'Western Skies'. Now that you've been out there, I think you'd appreciate the song, and it will remind you of the beautiful things you saw.
