Happy? Anniversary

Today is our 4 year anniversary. Hooray for us! However, we don't always have "happy" anniversaries... last year, Mark worked 14 hours on our anniversary. This year, I got a call from the police, attempting to track me down. My Aunt Cathy was taken to hospital with breathing problems this afternoon, and is heavily sedated while they give her antibiotics to clear up an infection in her lungs. So we walked up to Royal Columbian Hospital around 8 (it takes about 3 minutes) to check on her. She's in the ICU, and they're going to keep her completely sedated until the lung infection is gone and they can safely remove the breathing tube they had to put in to help her get enough air. So much for a nice relaxing evening :P

Tomorrow we go to my mom's for the weekend. My cousins Shannon, her husband Carl and their one-year-old daughter Sophie are coming out from Victoria to visit, and I haven't seen them since Shannon was 7 or 8 months pregnant. It will be nice to catch up.

Kara got her two month shots today. They went as well as could be expected (lots of crying on the part of Kara, and a very concerned big sister). She's now sleeping it off.

After that we went to Superstore. The following exchange began while waiting at the left turn signal on Lougheed, right by the Toys'R'Us:

Chloe: "There's the super store!"
Me: "No sweetie, that's a toy store."
Chloe: "Maybe that's the super store?"
Me: "No, that's a store called Canadian Tire. They have garden stuff, and house stuff, and car stuff."
Chloe: "And Canady stuff!"

I love how simple toddler logic is :)

2 months

I totally missed posting on Kara's 2 month, which was Sunday. And also Mother's Day. My girls sure make me proud/happy to be a mom! We went to White Rock with my mom and sister, it was fun, even though it was cold. Mark made a sand castle with Chloe, and then we watched as the water washed it away. It was lots of fun.

Today is voting day... who are you voting for?

Photos for your viewing pleasure

It's been over a week since I updated, because life has been insane. But here are some photos from the past 2 weeks
