1: Checking in at Terminal 2 (PAL) where we were blessed with business class seats! Yay! God's wonderful surprise on the first day of our trip!
3: We could get used to this!
4: Vancouver International Airport
5: Met up with Achi Kats and the crew and had dinner with Uncle Jerome Tang's family at Denny's
6: First morning at the Cham residence. Cousins Josh and Troy's first bonding session over iPad.
7: Our first stop was to visit Grandville Island. The official website describes it as a living, breathing urban oasis filled with fine waterfront restaurants, theatres, galleries, studios, unique shops, cafes and the most spectacular fresh food market you’ve ever seen. Add a vibrant and diverse mix of people and activities, and you have a destination so dynamic, no visit to the city is complete without spending at least a day here. Just think of Granville Island as Vancouver’s Town Square.
8: Troy and Josh were fascinated with the mechanical set up where the ball was dropping from different machines.
9: Pigeon feeding in front of the market. The kids (and adults) had a blast.

54: All that running made us hungry and tired.
