Either way, with our new little tag-alongs we had to switch it up this year. My Mom came up with the awesome idea of going down to Vancouver the day prior and staying overnight, making a little vacation out of it. We booked a 2 bedroom room at the Sutton Place hotel, which is one block away from the starting line. We arrived after the boys afternoon nap, and the room was gorgeous! Huge, with a full kitchen, 2 big bedrooms, cribs in the room, 2 bathrooms - it was great. My Mom and Dad went off to pick up the race packages, and after unpacking (you bring a lot of stuff with two babies!) Jamie and I headed out for a walk with the boys. We went probably about 5-6km, through a lot of residential parts just minutes away from Downtown. I didn't know that there were areas in that area that were actually quiet, it was nice. The boys had another nice snooze during the walk, once they finished stuffing their faces with cheerios.

Adam started getting a little cranky, but we managed to keep him okay in order to finish the 10k - that or we just couldn't hear him because we had headphones in, sorry buddy! We finished with a time of 1:18, which I am super happy with! Neither of the boys napped during the run, and Adam fell asleep as soon as we got out of the noise of the finish line... So, what else to do but keep on walking? Scott fell asleep after a while too, so Jamie and I probably put on another 5km at least after the race to make sure both of them got their afternoon naps.
