After much preaching to the kids about trying to consume less (especially cheap plastic toys from China), I felt my birthday gift to Fin should reflect this desire. Also, by giving her some future experience I didn't have to worry about any last minute shopping. The down side is the constant questions about when we were goin to go on the promised go-kart ride. Today after watching the Tswassen Sun Festival Parade seemed like the right time. Nothing like hanging out on the steaming pavement and breathing the fumes from the noisey two stroke engines to peacefully spend one of the hottest afternoons of the year.
