Stay-cation and VACATION

In honor of the Olympics we decided to do a stay-cation to Canada! We learned a lot of interesting facts (like Canadians eat more mac-and-cheese than any other country), we saw a funny looking totem pole, and we ate some yummy food (pancakes with Canadian Maple Syrup for breakfast, Mac-and-cheese for lunch, and Le Cellier steak, potatoes, salad, and alcohol free wine (aka grape juice) for dinner. –How was that for a long sentence? Needless to say, it was one of our more pathetic attempts to travel the world in our basement. But, here are a few pictures to document our efforts.



On a brighter note we are going on a REAL VACATION…yes, this will take place outside of our basement!! We bought tickets this week to visit Darin’s parents in the Philippines!!! We can’t wait!!

We are excited that you get to visit Lee and Joan, and we KNOW they are. Our plan is to go in December, 2011. How is that for long-range planning?
