SUMMER TIME FUN WITH THE KIDS

Vancouver in the summer time is the best ever!  Some is a list of some of my favorite things to do with the kids Imageduring summer break: 

Growing food in the garden – snap peas, raspberries, salad greens, carrots, cucumbers, herbs and watching the kids go and forage!  

Hanging out in the back lane with the neighbours while the kids bike & scooter race

Biking down to Jericho beach and wallowing in the ocean.

Visiting the Jericho Beach Sailing Club COOP & renting a paddle board.  And for afternoon snack ice cream! http://jsca.bc.ca/aboutus/about-the-jericho-sailing-centre/

Buying my veggies & bread at Vancouver Farmers Market. http://www.eatlocal.org/markets.html

Searching for crabs at the dog walking beach on Spanish Banks with Alfie the family dog. http://vancouver.ca/parks/rec/beaches/jericho.htm

Playing tennis with the kids

Busing down to Kitsilano Pool and competing with the kids down the slide. http://cfapp.vancouver.ca/parkfinder_wa/index.cfm?fuseaction=FAC.PoolDetail2&fac_id=738

Watching the fire works from Trimble Park.

And at the end of a long day popping to that very family friendly restaurant … Rocky Mountain Flatbread … where I can enjoy my glass of White Bear wine & a farmers market pizza and the kids can order the fav … chicken noodle soup, mac and cheese and a mozza pizza with mango!
