Over the Family Day long weekend I took Dylan and Tayler to visit my Grandma in Sidney. (Russ had a nasty cold so he stayed home to keep Ed company). We were going to hang out, visit and enjoy the warmer temperatures.(when we left it was minus 40 in Gateway). On the ferry over we ran into Brad and Amy and the kids, coming back from Vancouver - what a great surprise so we visited for an hour and a half! We have tentatively planned a dinner for spring when we come down for birthdays!
Turns out Family Day long weekend in Sidney is Lego Days - how perfect is that! My kids LOVE Lego!And it was the Fire Departments 100th anniversary too!

There was Lego Sculptures all over town in Shop windows and Cafes the bakery even had a cake covered in marzipan lego blocks and people

|We had hot chocolate with my friend Erin and her boys at the Red Brick - Hot choclate with choclate whip cream and pink and red sprinkles|
|At the Firehall they were building a 6 foot long Firetruck|

|This seal was so excited to see us down by the docks but so disappointed when we had nothing for him|
|Another sculpture I love this one!|
|My sweet friend Erin came out to spend the afternoon with us|
On Monday Jo, Gisela and the girls came to see us too! Little Tilia is super adorable and Linnea had a great time with Dylan and Tayler. She hardly ever sees them but loves to play around with them!and She loves Lego too!

We had a wonderful time with Grandma, she put up with us for three days and fed us way too much. Unfortunately I never took any pictures with Grandma in them - how bad is that! oh dear - I will have to do that this spring!
