Adventures and Goats

Hey Everyone!!!

I  know we are a bit slow on all the updates. First off it has almost been a month since we have moved up. I’m almost entirely done with my applications (I keep sending stuff in and having to get companies to send in copies, which takes a couple of weeks). I will be doing my last part of it tomorrow, hopefully. We almost have the car registered with the ICBC, Canada’s DMV + insurance. We drove down to Washington to get all the recall information on our car. We have to get one more recall done, which we are going to do Wednesday. We then have to take the car to Canada Tire, where they will look at our car and determine if it is “Canada legal” to be allowed to be registered. We know we will have to do some work like get daytime running lights installed, but hopefully it won’t be too much else. We then have to allow Canada Tire to fix everything that’s wrong (fingers crossed it won’t be super expensive). Then we have to go to the border again and talk to Border Patrol, turn in our car paperwork and list of stuff from our storage unit. Then, at long last, we can go to the ICBC and be done with the car. We are also currently figuring out how to get new licenses; it seems like we just trade them in because we are Americans and they have a deal with the USA.

Okay, now for the fun stuff! HERE are pictures of last weekend when we went to Stanley Park. Stanley Park is bigger than Central park in New York and like Central Park has many films and tv shows filmed there. Dave and I decided to take a horse drawn carriage tour of the park and here are pictures.  BUT FIRST Pictures of the zoo part of the Safari I promised you all earlier.
