You know I sing a love song for Vancouver all the time and I thought it would be fun to film some live action of why this city has our heart. Low tide at Spanish Banks is one of our favourite times of the summer and we daily check the tidal schedules to make sure we don’t miss out on the best beach days.
First things first: Sally Hope, you won the family four pack to Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS)! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
I know people have favourite forests they like to hike or camp in but what about a favourite grove of poplar trees?
In a few weeks we head back to Powell River for a two week cabin vacay and I was reminded by these photos, of our last trip, how unequivocally beautiful it is there. It takes a few days to relax before I shake off the pace of the city. It’s funny, I mostly feel it in my jaw.
This year we get to experience the cabin with three walking little ones so it should be interesting….
Where are you dreaming of going this summer?
Vancouver’s beloved annual tradition, Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS), which returns to the stage this summer with two timeless family musicals – Oliver! – The Musical and Hairspray – The Broadway Musical, running on alternating evenings July 10 – August 22, 2015 at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park. For their 2015 season – celebrating 75 years of song-and-dance filled summer nights – TUTS promises dramatic adventures, big hair, and toe-tapping tunes that are fun for the whole family. Ben and I have seen Hairspray on the TUTS stage and it was a hilarious, rollicking performance!
In light of the TUTS 2015 season, Elasticpantcity is giving away a family four-pack of tickets to TUTS 2015, to see either Hairspray or Oliver! It’s sure to be a memorable evening for one lucky reader and company!
Yesterday a friend who met my boys for the first time said, “Your heart must be melting all day long.” My kids are sweet and they fill my heart with so much pride and joy. The fact that I was chosen to be their mom is one of the greatest gifts God has given me. When the world is moving too fast and I feel overwhelmed I ask myself what should I be focussing my time and energy on. The answer is being a mom.
Did you know homemade pinwheels are super easy to make? Light-weight paper such as magazine pages works best for really little kids who are still working on their blowing skills. Medium weight paper (i.e. drawing paper) is great for older kids who can also create designs on their pinwheel with crayons and markers.
