Stanley Park 2011

On our recent trip to British Columbia we took a day to enjoy Stanley Park. It is truly a must-see if you are in Vancouver! We hadn't visited since our oldest was 1, almost 8 years ago. We took a walk around part of the sea wall, had a picnic and took in a playground. A delightful day, despite children being disappointed that the splash park wasn't open for the season yet and hearing many complaints from children that they were too tired to walk anymore.

hooray for a moment of brotherly love!

you're never to old to play

so many things to look at!

That is a really good picture of you and Andrew! I am glad you didn't just survive your trip, but enjoyed it. Adventures in Oddessy was a lifesaver for our family on all of those 18 hour drives to Nebraska.
