Fun in the city

I just got home from spending four glorious days in Prince George. Nathaniel had a course and his hotel was covered so Amelia and I decided to accompany him. While he attended class, Amelia and I went swimming, shopped, ate out, watched TV, got lost, and visited some neat book stores. I did my best to practice restraint and not buy everything in sight. There is a HUGE list of books I am dying to read. Other than that, I really enjoyed catching up on my quota of Starbucks beverages.

Amelia LOVED swimming. Her whole body wiggled with excitement every time her toes touched the water.Nathaniel didn't waste any time dunking her under the water and chucking her in the air; both of which she loved.She must have gone down the slide a million times because she slept like a rock that night. As exciting as the pool was, she also thoroughly enjoyed the change room where she climbed in and out of lockers while I took my time getting dressed.

It was nice to have a break from washing dishes, cleaning, and our daily routine. We ordered in all our favorite foods, which was a treat. I had masaman curry (one of my mainstays while I was in Thailand), some incredible tagliatelle with artichokes and sun dried tomatoes, pirogi pizza from Boston pizza,Indian butter chicken and numerous other yummy things.

Yay! Glad you could get out and 'indulge' a little bit. It's amazing what becomes a treat when you're away from the city, hey?

Looks like you had fun and what a wonderful treat not having to cook clean and have a starbucks ;0)

p.s. the word verification for this is "nater". Does anyone ever call Nathaniel that?
