July 2019-our family embarked on our first international adventure! Together we traveled to Vancouver, Canada for 10 days! This was the perfect way to celebrate the end of nursing school & NCLEX studying plus take advantage of the Summer + time before work. Mom planned our trip and each day was jam packed with fun activities! The weather was beautiful, crisp clear air and around 60 degrees most days with a few afternoon showers but they didn’t keep us from having any fun!

The fabulous Sutton Hotel in the heart of downtown Vancouver! It was walking distance to so many great places including Robson Street 🙂 images via
