As I get ready to spend nearly a month away from my family to renew my visa, days like today do a lot to give me good photos to look at while I’ll be missing them. Mike Skinner was right when he said _memories are times we borrow for spending tomorrow_.

The weather has been gorgeous which means we’ve been at Stanley Park two evenings in a row! This evening we had a picnic before letting the kids play on the playground. Then it was a walk by the lakes to see the duck families. These flowers are all over the place.
