We got back from our vacation today, a day early, we were supposed to be staying at a place 2 hours from here, then decided we didn't need to spend the money and drove the rest of the way home (we were able to get out of our reservation). We had a great time, Kaitlyn was a doll, only a couple major tantrums/cranky periods. It's going to take me awhile to catch up on all the new threads (and I might not be able to comment on them all), but we're glad to be home for the weekend to get settled, do laundry, etc.
Here are (a gazillion) pics from the holiday ... I took the best of the 700 or so, and you can see them here: http://s76.photobucket.com/albums/j35/slurpeegirl13/Vacation%202009/
But here are a few to share
Banff national park:
Kaitlyn's first experience in a lake:
Trying to 'catch' the waves:
This happened a lot:
Carousel in Spokane
The 'bribe' - I'm not usually into giving K sugar, but 2 or 3 times (in 12 days) we had to keep her (mouth) busy so she wouldn't whine, and suckers worked great for that.
At a park in Spokane:
DH and my drink at a seafood place in Seattle
Kaitlyn didn't care that we were on top of the Space Needle, she screamed until we let her do this:
Dolphins at the Vancouver Aquarium
Kaitlyn & Mommy
We had a lot of fun in this splash park in Kelowna
Panorama in Kelowna
And this one: Kaitlyn thought she wasn't allowed to go past the 'line' of shadow and sun.
Great pictures, it looks like you had a great time!!! Can't wait to see what pages you come up with

oh, great pictures! looks like a fun time! I probably would have done the same thing with the last two hours, just driven home. sometimes there's just no place like home when you've been away from it for a while. love all of the pictures, you went to some beautiful places and looks like made some great memories. but I'm dying at that last picture with the "line". what a riot!
