Posted by on Oct 7, 2016 in adventures | No Comments

We went on an amazing family vacation to Vancouver and the island in September. We spent a fun day in Vancouver with my good friend Jen who lives only a couple blocks from the Olympic Village. Such a fun part of town. We went for a walk to Science World and the seawall that morning […]

The Spring Farm Fair

We had a Spring Farm Fair at Pass Creek in May and it was such a great event. I think we might have spent two hours snuggling bunnies and chicks. I dragged them away to buy some plants and then it was back to the baby animals. Sunny didn’t even want to leave them to […]

Almost Spring at Syringa

Last week we met my friend Leah and her kids at Syringa. It was cold, it snowed a bit, and the kids had trouble understanding that you shouldn’t reach into the lake with mittens on. All that said, it was sooo nice to be outside. Come on springtime! Craig got me a new toque/hat thing […]

Wildlife Centre in September

Time to get caught up on my personal photos! These were taken on the last day of September on a gorgeous fall outing with my brother and niece. The most exciting part of the walk were the woolly bear caterpillars, who were doubtless all traumatized after our visit.
