For the rest of the long weekend, we ventured north to celebrate and spend time with friends and family. It was busy, and we ping ponged a little bit, but it was a great time and we got to see all our favorite people.
Mike took Maeve on a special date - Godfather/Goddaughter date. They have a special relationship and its fun to watch.
We went to the May Day parade with Todd and Stacy too. Maeve thought it was even better than Halloween, I think, because they were literally giving her handfuls of candy... she didn't even need to work for it. Ha. (And, here is Maeve with her new umbrella - it was the only thing she asked for and it was her favorite gift).
We spent the day with my Dad and Lynn, which turned out to be a great biking day for Maeve. Maeve has been nervous about biking this year because she took a fall last year while we were in Arizona... so, biking part of the seawall and around lost lagoon to downtown was a big success.
You can't beat Vancouver on a beautiful day...
Maeve was so proud of her biking... and wanted to remind everyone that she is now 5. Ha.
We took a moment to play at the playground at second beach...
Lost Lagoon was a nature tour -- all the animals were out.
We saw turtles, ducks, chicks, geese, goslings, and swans... probably more. I can't remember.
After having a birthday lunch at White Spot, we ventured back to Grandma and Grandpa's place. I think Maeve and I both need to go on a diet now after all the celebrations! Ha.
