February has been a busy month and we missed going into Vancouver while the weather was nice but my mom came for the weekend and the two of us went down town on Saturday for some quality time together and just to take it all in.
We took the sky train and as most trips where myself, my mom or worse both of us together are in charge of navigating we started off lost but that didn't dampen our spirits any. We walked a lot... took in the sights and the atmosphere and almost did the zip line. No, we didn't chicken out. We had about 3 1/2 hours until we planned to head back and pick up the kids at mom and dad's. We were told the line up for the zip was 3 1/2 - 3 hours long at that time. We got in line and waited for about 30 minutes at which point we reached a marker that said it was a 4 hour wait from that point... so we decided to go watch the mascots on ice instead... which was very cute.
I didn't take a ton of pictures and we forgot to check out the cauldron but we had a good time. Oh, we also got to see the Women's curling team with their silver medals and mom got some pictures of that.
