It's all booked. Our flights. Our car rental. Our hotel. Our itinerary. It wasn't too fun planning...the prices of EVERYTHING kept fluctuating from minute to minute, and I am not exaggerating...I called more than 12 hotels before finding one that 1. wasn't over $300.00 a night 2. completely sold out...booked solid (how can there be THAT many people staying in hotels in downtown Vancouver, even if it's a long weekend???). Everything is coming out to be more than we intially wanted to spend...BUT...i figure this is probably going to be our LAST holiday as a twosome-non-parents...so I think we can splurge a little bit. Our hotel is in the West End of Vancouver, blocks from the beach, funky gay district, and many cafes and restaurants...so fun! I can't wait to see everyone! Our week is jam-packed...two days in Vancouver to see friends, one day in Whistler/Pemberton enjoying beautiful BC just the two of us , two days in Mission to see Rob's family, and a few days in Penticton to see my sister/family!!! We've honestly missed BC (and the people we love there) tons since we've moved!
