June 14 to 16, 2013; Vanessa Graduation and Father's Day

JUN  14, Friday; to Abbottsford for graduation
We left the house at 9 am and arrived at the UFV Campus right on time for the start of the Graduation ceremony.  We watched Vanessa receive her diploma in Bachelor of General Art in History Major and English minor and a Diploma in Liberal Arts.  We are ALL so very proud of her achievements.  There were well over 100 students in the ceremony so it took a long time, including all the speeches.  We took some pictures afterwards then it was off to Cactus Cafe for lunch with everyone.  Sid and Vera drove with us.  We came back to Jeff’s house around 3 pm and took Debbie and the dogs over to a dog park.  Jeffrey joined us there after work then we came home.  We installed the closet that Jeff built in his shop, took some pictures then had a relaxing drink.  We drove to the Pub for dinner and a good time.  It was very busy place and noisy.  We were in bed by 11 PM

JUN  15, Saturday, time on the boat then back to Chilliwack.
I uploaded a bunch of pictures in Folder #104 if anyone is interested!  We finally have a sunny day!!!  After showering and breakfast, we headed to Coquitlam at Rey’s Marina where Jeff keeps his boat (very nice).  We went out and drove to False Creek harbour in Vancouver.  We had a beer there at anchor and after a while, we came back, moored the boat and headed home to Langley, arriving around 7 PM.  We had a great day and the boat performed without a flaw. We had steak and salad for dinner and Debbie made a warm English style potato salad which was quite different but delicious.  After a short visit and saying our goodbyes until tomorrow, we hooked up the Jeep and left for Chilliwack arriving around 10:30 PM and finding a car parked in our spot at Rochelle & Kevin so we parked on the main driveway.  We were soon in bed!

 
JUN  16, Sunday; Father’s Day!
Another very nice day; The car in our spot finally moved so we moved the Beaver back to its spot and about 10 minutes later Rochelle and Kevin arrived from Harrison Hot Spring where they had attended a wedding yesterday.  We all got busy getting everything ready.  Father’s Day luncheon was attended by all the Grand-Parents, Mom and Dad and the kids; Jeffrey and Debbie also attended.  Rochelle had cooked a huge ham, Farmer Sausage and lots of add-ons.  It was a success.  We had lots of laughs, some at the expense of Grand-Son Graeme who has a date tonight.  It is so fantastic to share this moment with a Loving family.  Everyone went home some time in the afternoon and we ended up having a snooze for a couple hours.
