We went vacationing in our own city this past weekend going on a tour of some of the Lower Mainland's lesser known parks. It was very refreshing and a fitting end to what was otherwise a rather gruelling and stress-laden week.
Horseshoe Bay and Whycliffe Park
Lighthouse Park and Point Atkinson
(* Thanks Joe and Sheryl for the stroller!)
Clam up on seashells
At the top of the hill, there was a nice big old growth tree where I decided I'd take a quick photo of Karen. That's when we both heard a big "crunch!". The next thing we knew, Erich had the entire shell in his mouth! By the time we managed to pry open his mouth, the shell was in pieces.
Gross! I thought of course. There it was, a half-eaten clam shell. So funny what kids decide to put in their mouths!
In the end though, Erich did get to satisfy his hunger. We ended the day at Park Royal where we sipped Orange Julius and had a fantastic meal at Steamworks. Karen and I did some shopping while Erich slept in his stroller. He slept for a good 2.5 hours. He must have been exhausted from the hike because he almost never takes naps that long!
