Today is when my MIL (mother in law) and Jeff's cousin G2 (middle Gracie) arrives. It will be the first time for G2 to visit Canada and second time for my MIL. Many years ago my MIL and the mother of Gracie took a very long trip from San Francisco, California to Flin Flon, Manitoba. The stories that they told us were pretty amazing. Can you imagine two women in an old vehicle driving for many days and making stops at some little town? All I can think of is that movie Thelma and Louise. Anyway, we are very excited for their visit since they will be with us for two whole weeks. There are really no plans on what we will be doing with them. It will all depends on what they want to see and how much hanging around the house we would do. Since it has been over a year since we last saw my MIL, there are going to be a lot of late nights, sharing stories and just hanging out. A couple of days ago, I have been busy doing some cooking in preparation for their visit. I did remember to take some photos to share. We know that they would like to see a lot of the tourist spot and of course the local favorites. Although it is much smaller than San Jose, CA we can definitely show them the Canadian Hospitality. They are excited to try our very own Tim Horton's coffee and they also want to try some of the local coffee shops in the city.
