Quick note...my tulips have finally bloomed! And they're even better than I had anticipated...
Well, we didn't have any big plans for the weekend, so on Saturday afternoon we headed into Abbotsford to get together with Todd and Brianne. Brianne and I decided to go to Bellingham to do some shopping and left the guys to do what they enjoy most--- yup, you guessed it...vids.
The only problem for Brianne and I was that we hadn't thought about the fact that it was already about 2:00pm, it was a nice, sunny afternoon and many others may have decided to go to the States as well. We pulled up to the Sumas border crossing to find that we certainly were NOT alone in our "great idea." We ended up being in line at the border for nearly an hour and a half! And in the heat of the day! Our car has an exterior "thermometer" and although I don't think it was quite as hot as it said it was, it certainly felt close to that considering we were stuck in our car with black leather seats. Not fun. We were very thankful to be able to have the windows down and the sun roof open to keep the air flowing.
Doesn't Brianne look thrilled to be stuck in the car on a hot day... :)
GET US OUT OF HERE!!! We want to SHOP!
Well, we did FINALLY make it to Bellingham and had a really great time as always. We both got some great deals and enjoyed a little snack in the food court. OK, so I didn't exactly "enjoy" my snack. Just in case you haven't discovered this, McFlurries taste FAR better in Canada... this Oreo "treat" just didn't hit the spot...
After our shopping adventure, we drove back to Abby to have a late dinner with the guys at Red Robin. Mmmmm... love their freckled lemonade!
So despite our border crossing frustrations, it was all in all a great day! We'll have to go down again soon Brianne... and next time, I'll skip the McFlurrie! :)
Have a great week everyone!
