I've been meaning to share some pictures from our mini-vacation to Vancouver, Canada. To get there, we only had to drive about 120 miles from Seattle and were able to use our nifty enhanced drivers' licenses to get across the border. It was mine and Nate's first time out of the country, and aside from a few GPS malfunctions, we had a great time.
The city is absolutely gorgeous! There are so many trees, mountains, and so much water.
Ryan brought me a little flower, which was really sweet of him, but Nate really wanted it. He kept smelling it and the poor flower eventually wound up crumpled in his hand. I told Ryan that he'll have to remember to grab one for Nate next time too. :)
We even got ourselves some Canadian money. Did you know that they call their dollar coin a Loonie? Isn't that great!?
We went to an awesome aquarium (although not quite as awesome as the Monterey Bay Aquarium) and saw Beluga whales for the first time and a dolphin show.
Dolphins are crazy jumpers! These guys had the entire crowd in awe.
And they had an Amazon exhibit where we walked right underneath amazing birds and this guy, a two toed sloth!
As we returned home, we were greeted by this sign. Oh, the good ole' U.S.of A.
We had a great time. Next time, we'll have the GPS all set up and ready to go so we aren't scrambling around and looking at maps the entire time. Who does that anymore? Seriously? I don't know where we'd be without our GPS anymore.
Have you ever been into Canada?
