Taken recently at Whytecliffe Park, West Vancouver. Awesome place to explore.
Another summer ahead which means lists. OKAY. No it doesn't. But for me, having a bunch of fun ideas up my sleeve is so helpful. The catch is, we need people to do these things with us because these adventures are always better in community.
So, let's make some plans.
1. Daddy and boys camp out (Brae Island?) Any other dads with their boys want to join Jason for a night?
4. Swim in this pool in Stanley Park. Or another outdoor pool. Not sure what we'll do with Fiona...
6. Go to the Celebration of Lights. Many a childhood memory was spent waiting on the beach for hours, and playing 'sardine' in the crowds afterwards. We. Need. A. Date. Night.
7. Upright paddle boarding in False Creek! Groupon is bought! Can't wait to do this with Jason.
9. Fly our kite. We bought one years ago in the Oregon coast and have yet to show the kids. Maybe Vanier Park? False Creek?
11. Go Geocaching. The boys would love this!
13. Camping with our life group!
18. Hike at deep cove or Buntzen Lake.
19 Ice cream from the ice cream truck.
20. Enjoy Frappucinos,
23. Ride a ferry.
24. Centennial park - check it out (I've heard good things)
25. Host a block party and/or BBQ.
27. Evening swim at a [free] Surrey outdoor pool.
29. Side-walk chalk 'bomb' friend's houses [with encouraging messages from the Brinks]
30. Ride the skytrain.
31. Make a fort in the forest.
32. Have floats. (Rice ice cream, anyone?)
34. Day trip to the Othello tunnels.
37. Outdoor movie night.
38. Picnic breakfast!
40. Rock hopping at Golden Ears Provincial Park.
45. Take the boys to a sporting event of some kind.
46. Picnic at Rocky Point Park.
47. Deliver jam or berry pies to our neighbors
48. Sleep in a tent in our backyard.
50. Watch Art in the Park- people set up to paint in Stanley Park.
51. Take the boys Rock-wall climbing
52. Magnifying glass and binocular nature walk. Boys might enjoy this!
53. Bike obstacle course.
54. Feed ducks.
58. Make it to Deception Pass in Washington
59. House-sit for someone.
64. Check out Redwood Park in Surrey. We've heard it's super fun.
67. Leave funny faces on trees in a forest trail for other hikers to discover. We saw one in a trail recently and the boys thought it was awesome. Now to make one with natural ingredients instead of buying one...
68. Outdoor bedtime stories (get a bunch from the library and read them outside before bed).
69. Make bird feeders.
70. Go on a water slide. If the boys are too little, I think J and I should go on a date night, or does anyone want to do a couples date night where all of us child-rearing adults can go and have some clean fun and go night sliding? WOULD BE SO FUN.
