a change in plans…

 

This weekend we were suppose to be at Pender Harbour on the  Sunshine Coast....but the plans fell through…our friends, Harry and Elaine are coming back to the Vancouver area..a new grandchild is on the way…how exciting is that??!!!

We have visited them twice at  their home on the Sunshine Coast.. ..once in  April 2005…

  2. I'm sorry to hear that your plans fell through. Maybe you can do something fun this weekend? I know that IHOP and IKEA are fun, too, but not quite the same as a visit with friends. We're supposed to have rain again starting tomorrow, but at least Dave's football game has been dry so far tonight.

  3. Any day that includes IHOP can't be all bad! Too bad about the weekend plans, but I'm sure you'll be able to make it up another time!
