Remember I mentioned our oldest son was in London, England for work, well our youngest son is in San Diego, California also for work … does it sound like bragging? Well let’s get serious folks, I am full on bragging and very proud! But why am I telling you this? I thought it was funny that our oldest son wished me happy Mother’s Day from Europe and yesterday our youngest son was so excited when he sent us a video of an aircraft carrier he viewed from the window of a restaurant where he was having dinner. This is the son who was in the military so these things interest him, but what I think is funny about this story is the fact that we could respond to him and say that we had toured that aircraft carrier when we were in San Diego a few years ago and if he isn’t lucky enough to get there in time to do a tour he could always read his mom’s blog!!!! Yup that was just to much fun for me! Seriously out of our three children and their spouses I think he is the only one who doesn’t read my blog … maybe this will change his mind … okay probably not but I felt like I had one up on him 🙂
So back to regularly scheduled blogging … Yesterday we packed up Maxx, got out our passports, Canadian wallets, and hubby’s Canadian cell phone and headed for the US Canada border. Before we headed out I contacted Rogers and took my cell phone off suspension so as soon as we arrived in Canada we should have been good to go communication wise, of course that didn’t happen. For some reason they removed the suspension from my phone and then immediately put it back on again, it wasn’t until nearly 6:00 p.m. that I was finally able to get them to take the suspension off … I honestly don’t like cell phone companies but what can you do!
As much as we enjoy our winters south is always comforting to be back in BC, it’s just nice to know that if anything happens, you are home and help is not far away.
Two hours after we left Anacortes, Washington we were all set up at hubby’s sister’s place and the visiting with family has already begun 🙂
Until next time …
