I Love Spring In Vancouver

Vancouver is such a beautiful city when is stops raining. And boy has it rained a lot, but here comes the sun. We've had a few gorgeous days and it makes me sooooo happy. Spring is finally here and it will just get warmer and warmer and better and better. I can't wait for picnics in the park and beach days and sprinklers and swimming outside. I also can't wait for outdoor festivals and spending whole entire days outside and camping. I feel very lucky to live here, in this gorgeous place with the mountains and the ocean, and I really could never imagine living anywhere else.

So I am going to try something a little different with this post. I am going to put up some of my own pictures and show a little taste of Vancouver, and if I am happy with it all, maybe I'll do it again sometime. You are welcome to let me know what you think, and if I can pull this kind of blogging off, or if I should stick to talking about issues and such. Here I go.

Spring comes to my backyard.

Look at those mountains! A view from downtown, at the waterfront, on our way to...

On Wednesday we went to our first outdoor festival of the year and it was tons of fun. I took the kids on the bus and we headed downtown to Vancouver's 125th Birthday Celebration. There was a special ceremony and lots of live music and stilt walkers and 3 huge birthday cakes, made to feed thousands of people. My kids loved it! It made us all feel great about living in Vancouver.

My sister in-law took these two pictures of the crowd, it really was a great turn out.

This was the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron, drum roll please, Ta-Da!

And here are my monkeys having a blast.

I'll leave you with this little piece of cuteness, a clip of my daughter rockin' out to some live music, isn't she awesome!!! One day she's gonna be a Dancing Queen just like her mama, I can tell already : )

Thanks Kyra I love all of the flowers and trees too. I want to go out right now and get some pics of all of the cherry blossom trees on my street. Another thing I love about spring is the smell, I love the freshness of it and the smell of all of the flowers and blossoms. I'm really happy I don't have allergies!

I've been remiss ... haven't looked at your blog in awhile. But what a treat to catch up and see the gorgeous place where you live and your adorable daughter doing her "thing".

Can't wait to open the next one!
