This past Friday was one of those days that you send photo updates to the relatives about. It was sunny, the babies were happy, we strolled around Stanley Park with a friend from Pender Island and had free lunch at the yacht club (courtesy of our friend, Mr. Tam).
The thing that originally brought us on this most recent visit to Vancouver’s jewel was The Cob House that was built there in 2004 to promote sustainable building practices. It’s funny that I haven’t mentioned it before but this is something Jesse and I are very passionate about. We hope to build our own cob home one day.
Our friend is a member of the yacht club and took us for lunch there. I didn’t think it was possible to enjoy dining out with babies but my hat is off to this establishment. You simply write down your order, take it to the cook and pick up your food when ready. I could not have been happier and the boys even sat without incident at our patio table.
Shae’s first castle had a tube slide to conquer and my brave little man paused only briefly before coasting through the darkness.
This shot was all Shae’s idea. It’s like he knew exactly what it was there for. On that note, if you’re looking for some fun activities to do with the kids this spring break and Easter weekend, they have an egg hunt down by the Miniature Train and by the looks of it, games and activities at certain times/days.
This day was really Shae’s day. Both boys slept peacefully on the ride home. Mama happy, Daddy happy, Shae happy, Oliver happy (as Shae would say).
