BC Halleluiah! - by Amelia

A few days ago we were in BC at my Grandparents house. We got to their house before they arrived. My Dad made yummy crepes for us all for dinner. The next day I had my first motorcyle ride. Papa took me all the way to Lumby to see my cousins Danika and Jayden. They looked so old. They even have a pool and trampoline in their backyard.

The motorcycle was fun. It is like going in a car, except with all the windows open and no doors. The helmet that Papa had for us was fun, since it had a micro phone in it and I could talk to him without screaming. The rest of the time we were there it was fun, fun, fun. Nanny Judith taught me how to knit again and we did a bunch of wrapping for Rotary. My Papa is the District Governor of Rotary. I even saw my best friend Ally in BC. She came from Toronto on a holiday and it ended up we were in the same place at the same time. Ally and I got to go tubing in the lake.

We also spent a couple of days in Lumby to visit my Aunty Tricia, Uncle Dwayne and Danika and Jayden. We played "Singing Star". It is a game where you sing into a microphone and battle other people. The pool was so FUN. We played in it all day. At dinner time it was just like a buffet. They put things out on the patio and we just grabbed at them and ate them.

The trip to BC was such a fun time. I got to see alot of my Dads side of the family and that was FUN. So I hope you all like my blog. Bye for now. Amelia

  4. Hi Millie - sorry we are late with a comment. OUr last anchorage didn't have WiFi. Sounds like BC was lots of fun. Did you know I had a motorcycle when I was in Germany and in Ottawa. Your Mom didn 't get to ride it though. I don't think your nanny Tugwood trusted my driving too much!!
    Take Care and enjoy Lacombe
    Lots of Love
