We're back from vacation and had a great time. When we were in Victoria macmcseboy decided to be our personal tour guide! [Applause] Which was wonderful since we got to have someone who knew exactly where everything was, all the great places to see, and all the places you should skip. We met up at Tim Horton's in the morning and then were off to go see the miniature museum, the Royal British Columbia Museum, and a few specialty shops (a yarn store for me and an art store for Josh). After a brief (unsuccessful) drive looking for a model train store we went to meet up with toobe.

 -

Kaitlin was a little bit wary and first but warmed up a lot. She even gave toobe a kiss on the way out. [hearts]

Josh was there too, but someone had to hold the camera. So instead of getting in the group shot, we just made sure to take a picture of him drinking his coffee. [Wink]

 -

macmcseboy and toobe, I hope we didn't get you sick, because the next day Kaitlin was throwing up. Josh and I caught it soon afterward, and I'd hate to think meeting up with you guys ended in infecting you.

We had a really great time meeting you guys. Thanks a bunch for coming all the way out and showing us around the town. More pictures will be on their way after I finish going over all the ones we got off of the camera.

I went to Victoria once. Quite an odd place. It was like a version of some provincial English town - but from the forties. Nice, though.

Wow...Josh looks pretty happy with that coffee... [Razz]

(I'm not sure whether I'd sing with glee, cry, or both if presented with that cup. [Wink] )

We actually had surprisingly little rain the entire week. It sprinkled some during the morning, but most of the rain happened at night. It was clear skies most of the trip.

I finally got the pictures from the trip sorted out. The ones in bold are Victoria/moot related, the others are just my vacation photos.

Haven't you taught Kaitlin she shouldn't talk on the cellphone while driving? [Wink]

I love the pics from the forest, especially the one of the wooden footbridge.
