When the Abelmans came to town (Part One)

Natasha and I have been trying to take our kids on vacation together for a few years. But something always seems to happen so that we don't get to go. Like this year, the people whose house we usually rent in the Interior decided not to rent their house out after all. Bummer. But still, we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. So we decided to take turns camping out at each other's houses. Turned out, it's a bit of a gong show.

First of all, it took Tash almost three hours to get from Chilliwack to Langley. Luckily for us, we had lots to keep us occupied. Like trying on silly hats. Poor Tash was squirrely by the time she got to our house though!

We finally made it to the ocean though, and Riley was straight off down the beach in search of critters!
Crab catchin'.

We camped out beside the pier. Great place for watching people, plus we had some built in shade.

Yup, that's my girl, multi tasking. Catching a nap, sun tanning AND eating lunch all at once. Atta girl!

YUCK! (though Riley is just mugging for the camera. She actually loved letting those icky things crawl all over her!!

Watching for unsuspecting passerbys so they could empty their buckets on their heads!
