Streamer Baby Goes to the Vancouver Aquarium

Stop #2 for Streamer Baby was the Vancouver Aquarium.  Alexa and I first visited the Vancouver Aquarium on our second anniversary (of dating), when we took a long weekend up in the city.  We had a blast, and just couldn’t resist showing our lovechild of streamers the fishes!


Here’s a cute photo of some clownfish from the aquarium tanks!  These are my favorite fishes – why?  Not because they’re Nemo fish, but because they’re so cute and cuddly and like to swim in the anemones.  Oh wait… It’s really cause they’re Nemo fish…

And here’s Alexa’s favorite aquarium attraction – the sea otters!  He was quite playful :)



Streamer Baby Goes to Capilano Bridge!

Our first stop in Vancouver with Streamer Baby was none other than the Capilano Suspension Bridge.  Basically a neat tourist trap that’s just some bridge that some dude built in the late 1800’s to… well, really he built it as a tourist trap!  At least that’s what we were able to figure out from the website.  Anyway, we took Streamer Baby into the park, carried it (or should we be saying him/her?) over the bridge and back, and through the treetop adventure that reminded us both of that one age in Myst where you have to keep turning the pipes on and off.  It was fun!  And now, because we know you’re dying to see the pics, take a peek below:




Photobooth Pics!

We’re back from our short little escape to Vancouver, and wanted to let you all know that the pics from the photobooth are now up online!  Check them out by logging in here:  Select the Alexa & Ben album and enter the password:  ABB522.  You all took soooo many great photos in the booth at the wedding – we were laughing hysterically going through the book of photostrips you all signed!

BTW, if you were curious where we got the photobooth, it was brought by the amazing ladies of 321 Foto.  We absolutely loved having them at our wedding!

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t put one of our fave photo strips up from the evening.  Sorry, it’s just of us two, but we thought it was crazy fun!




OMG We’re Married! And Announcing a New Addition To The Family!

We’re up in Vancouver, BC right now, relaxing for a couple days (call it a “minimoon” if you like), and just wanted to say:  We’re Married!  The wedding went off soooo well we can’t even describe how much fun we had!  We hope everyone had a great time and enjoyed all the amazing food!  Over the next several weeks, we’ll post some info about the planning we did, a bunch of fun stories from the wedding weekend, and of course links to photos and videos once we get those back.  For now, we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with us, and especially to all of our friends and family who were involved in making our day so special!

And last but not least, we wanted to introduce you to our newest family member: Streamer Baby!!!  During our Grand Exit, so many streamers came out around us that we got all caught up and the streamers tangled into a ball.  One of the groomsmen (we can’t remember who – if it was you – let us know!) threw the whole bundle into our getaway car!  Obviously we kept it and we’ve been carrying it around Vancouver taking pictures with it everywhere we go.  We’ll post the pics over the next couple of days, but for now, we just have one.  Introducing… Streamer Baby!




2 Days (or 1 if you go by the Macys website but no one pays them to count?)


Here we are, two days before the big day.  I’ve tried to get Ben to elope to Canada but no such luck (we’re mini mooning there instead).

In the past 48 hours we have learned the following:

1. We need a laser jet printer

2. Feeding me in set intervals = good idea (Ben already knows this but sometimes he forgets. . .)

3. Ben learned that you really can’t park in Charter Bus Only parking on 4th Ave.

4. That you really can put future in-laws into a manufacturing line just to make sure some lanterns look pretty (THANK YOU SALLY & GARY!!)

5. We are not DIY people. We’re PSE people (Pay Someone Else).  With that said we’ve done quite a bit of DIY. . .even though its caused some angry monkey type moments.


We are super excited to see each and every one of you this coming weekend and while I know we’re having some crazy and sometimes craptastic weather we do hope you’ll find time to get out and enjoy our city!
