My apologies to all the dicks and dykes.
So, we have this city called Regina, which is where we went this weekend with all of Brent's immediate family (12) and Brent's brother's parents in law. Wow, that was a mouthful! So, fourteen of us were in Regina on the weekend. Now, amongst friends Regina is often referred to as "The Vag" but Matthew has trouble remembering it as anything but Vagina. He'll loudly declare Vagina to be a windy city. He told me on a crowded airplane, "Mommy, Vagina is really far away from Langley, right?" And later, waving out the window, "Goodbye, Vagina!!!"
Sometimes I think I should have a bajillion more kids, just for the entertainment factor! And then I remember KIDS ON A PLANE. Kill me now.
We had fun. There was an open house at the RCMP training depot to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the RCMP. Very cool! Tons of awesome stuff. We hung out at the park, took a tour of the parlaiment buildings, wandered around the lake, went to the movies, hung out with family, went for ice cream (Matthew was banned from ice cream that night for leaving a pile of chicken in the corner of the tile bathroom floor during dinner and then pretending he had eaten it....that burned....hopefully he remembers THAT lesson and never lies again for the whole rest of his life), and enjoyed balmy weather! The last time we went to The Vag it was -46 degrees and blowing wind at 50 kph. This was an improvement.
It's great to be back!
