Vancouver, BC

The Markham Family recently took our first trip to Vancouver, BC in Canada.  We enjoyed a spur-of-the-moment trip with a couple of other families/friends.  It's neat to live so close to Canada that you can take a spur-of-the-moment trip!

Our first stop upon arriving in Vancouver was a street vender called Japadog.  Apparently this is a big deal...lots of celebrities eat here.  Harris thought he should participate in the hotdog-eating too (of course Momma's was plain)!  :)

We enjoyed some time on Granville Island.  There are lots of stores here & a market, but also lots of things to keep kids busy.  The kids enjoyed the indoor play area & also the playground outside.  The spray park would have been fun had it not been a bit dreary.

The kids enjoyed spending time with their friends...
Nolin with her friends - Ren & Jace
Harris with his friends - Enzo & Lucas
We also spent some time at Stanley Park.  This was such a great park.  There were lots of trails, a river walk, a spray park, playgrounds, restaurants, & even a train ride!  

This was supposed to be a Mommy & Daddy pick,
but someone was asleep on Mommy...

The trip was super quick, but lots of fun!  But let me just say...when you can't use your cell phone & don't know where you're going, & are trying to keep three cars together in the crazy traffic of Vancouver, it's stressful!  LOL
