Being in the city means putting finishing touches on things before we hit the road.  

A foggy morning at the Olson's in Langley
The big wind of 2015 knocked down several trees on the property and so they are having others taken down as well.

We've been to the doctor and we completed the necessary tests.  We're finishing up our stay with the grandchildren in Vancouver as we speak.  We love to spend time with them but we are really looking forward to being back in our own space and especially in our own bed.    We've shopped for and found most of the things on our list.  The joy of being in the big city, you can find everything you are looking for.  (hmm except for a spare tire cover big enough for our new tire).  We've seen Graeme and few times and will be seeing him again tomorrow and the next day.

Yesterday Doug, Graeme and I attended a Food Truck Festival in Maple Ridge.  Doug and I had never really been to a food truck as such.  There were nearly 30 to choose from.  Fun when each of us could choose something totally different.
Forgot my selfie stick

Just a few of the food trucks.  I had a baked potato topped with crab, lobster and sole from the orange place at the center of the picture.
This morning I am finishing up the laundry in Niki's fabulous washer and dryer before we head home.  Gramma May is taking the next shift.

Fun times with family but we are ready to leave our son's driveway. Always feels good to get back out on the road. Safe travels dear friends.

We love food truck food. We haven't had a bad meal yet.

Food trucks are one of my favorite things at the Minnesota State Fair. I get fresh strawberries at one, a steak sandwich at another, a fruit kabob at a third, and a fudge puppy at the last. A fudge puppy is a waffle coated in chocolate with strawberries poured over it--whipped cream is optional. Oh, yeah, and real lemonade squeezed while you wait. The turkey on a bun is from a booth, not a truck; they deep fry whole turkeys then shred them. In between courses, I visit the education building, the 4H building, and various stages to enjoy the free performances. That takes me most of a day but I only go once every few years. It may be time again next year. Probably a good thing I just ate before reading this. :)
