Home sweet home

We're back home now & we hit the lantern festival that has been up for a few weeks already. I think it has a couple weeks left that it's on display for. It's at the now defunkt Fantasy Garden in Richmond, BC. It's open daily from 7:30 - 11pm. The lights go on at 8:30 however. It was tons of fun for the kids. The lanterns are in a maze a midst of gardens. There is even a couple of interactive water spraying ones!!! It was fun.

It's amazing all the work that went into some of the huge structures. They said that the lanterns were made here (Vancouver), but I could only imagine how much that would have cost! They are amazing! I totally suggest you check them out if you are local!

We have flown away into the rainbow to visit family... we had a date with some Wapiti. Searched swampy marshes looking for a beaver. Now we be kickin' it poolside. We also have a new found love of Hero's... or should I say Hiro.

Be back soon!

I whipped these up last week. We use to have a pom-poms hanging in the security gate. They were getting sad & faded and ever so dusty. I took them down & have hung these flags in their place. It's funny how much people loved those darn pom-poms. I hope that people will love these just as much. 

It was my first time doing bunting - but I have to admit I am addicted! They are so fun to make!
