This is a little late, but I wanted to post a few photos from our trip to visit Granny last weekend for Thanksgiving. We had a lovely time, and it was (relatively speaking) so easy! When I think back to our first few trips when Miles was tiny and needed mountains of stuff, it’s quite a contrast! This time we didn’t even take a stroller; Miles just walked on his own two feet. If you know the Tsawwassen terminal, you’ll know that’s a long way even if you have full sized legs! It’s so liberating to be able to travel like that, even if we do still routinely case out the bathrooms everywhere we go and plan the quickest route there in case of urgent situations.
It’s hard to say what was the highlight of the trip – the pumpkin patch, feeding the harbour seals at Oak Bay Marina, or pumpkin pie. All were awesome!
Today we went to the much anticipated UBC Apple Festival. We had a good time, although it was awfully cold and there were long lines for everything (I am still confused about why the line for a bowl of chili took over half an hour, while custom-made pizza could be had in about 10 minutes). Despite that, we are now well stocked with apples, as well as a few pears that snuck into our box, and we very much enjoyed a slice of pie, courtesy of Gramma and Grampa.
