Yeah! Dawn arrived at the Vancouver airport just after noon today and I was able to surprise her by being there. What fun!
We decided to grab lunch at a huge mall close to my hotel and see what damage we could do there. No problem finding ways to spend our $. Uh oh...hope Dale isn't watching our spending online or I may be removed as one of Dawn's friends. :o)
The first thing we purchased were these cute matching outfits for Hannah and Annaliese. They probably won't be in the same place when they wear them as we live 1/2 a country apart but maybe someday we'll dress them alike and blog about it just for fun!
We also registered with Babies R Us/Toys R Us in Canada. I'd done this in the US more than a year ago but this time it was fun to set up a Canadian registry. We spotted lots of fun and also some practical things and scanned away adding them to our registries.
We called it a day around 5:00 tonight but will get together again first thing tomorrow morning. They're calling for more rain so we've decided to make tomorrow the day we cross into the states and do some shopping. Dawn has some outlet malls lined up and I've found a city that has a Target and JoAnn's Fabrics so that I can buy ribbons for the blankets in bulk. The tag toys have been popular lately so it will be easier to have the ribbon on hand rather than having to head to Wal-Mart every few weeks.
Until tomorrow we leave you with our version of the 'Red Couch' photo. We asked a guy at the front desk of my hotel to take a picture of us and this is where he led ut to sit. Fun!
