Nelson Surprise

It was supposed to be a big surprise party, but instead it was just a surprise.  My sister turned 40 last week so her husband Steve decided to throw a big party for her and my whole family decided to come.

Mom (and my sister's elementary school friend Angela) were flying from Vancouver to Castlegar while I was driving to Cranbrook, hooking up with Dad and Shelley and then driving to Nelson together.  Our first hiccup was the flights into Castlegar being cancelled.  Mom and Angela were running around the airport "Amazing Race" style, trying to get on different flights and finally settled on an early afternoon flight into Cranbrook.  So we delayed our departure so we could pick them up and all carpool to Nelson together.  Thank goodness for mini vans!

The second hiccup was my niece Sarah getting sick.  So the big party had to be postponed...  But we had our own mini-party instead.

We spent Saturday shopping, hanging out, playing Wii and just generally having a good time.

I spent Sunday travelling home.  :(

Thanks Steve for getting us all together!!!!

Sometimes Plan B isn't so bad.

Do we have to get a Wii now? Somebody looks like they're having a great game!
