Indoor Day | The Bloedel Conservatory

I’m always on the hunt for rainy day activities in Vancouver and so on Saturday we went with friends to visit the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park. The conservatory serves as a bird sanctuary for over 100 species of birds and various tropical plants. It is a relatively small, glassed in dome with a circular path which is stroller accessible. The kids enjoyed the scavenger hunt provided by the conservatory and were able to find all the items in a few rounds.

Ben is fully recovered from his illness. Thank God! He was actually on vacation last week and the poor man spent it in bed. Fortunately he has another week off and so we are taking full advantage of daddy being home with fun day trips. Today we visited Lighthouse Park; a personal favourite.

I love my boys. It’s a tad obvious to say but I’ve been especially relishing in their cuteness, creativity and unique little personalities as of late. Six-year-old Levi’s dream is to visit London. He is fascinated with historical buildings

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.

Now is the time to memorize the details. The tuft of hair that won’t be tamed, the mischievous smile as their hand dips into the Vaseline, the belly laughs, the slobbery kisses and the way their small, dirty hand looks resting in my own.

We’ve had a month of rough nights with baby # 3 which has left me feeling pretty zombified much of the time. His waking has all been related to teething and he’s up several times a night. Thank God he is so dang cute.

It’s Spring! The ground is full of creepy crawlies! Now is the time to take the kids outside for a bug hunt. Levi built his own little habitat for the snails to observe for a few days.

We’re preparing him emotionally for the release : )

Happy Hump Day!
