Good Morning, Vancouver!


We were awakened with a view of a perfect morning over English Bay and the rest of Vancouver.  Our hotel put us in a room on the 28th floor of a high-rise rich city.  So we spent the morning exploring the play areas and the Totem Poles around Stanley Park.

Vancouver & A Day on the Beach


We arrived in Vancouver on Sunday afternoon for a couple extra days of R&R while Sophia was off of school. We were welcomed with a beautiful sunny day, and found all of us on the beach – playing in the sand, chasing the birds, and imitating life in the statue garden just off English Bay. After a quick swim in the pool, we were all done for the day.

Having a Ball


We have a few days off so we’re on a weekend adventure with the girls.

Snow Bunnies

While Sophia was out of school she met a classmate and good friend and went up to the slopes as a “Mommy & Me” day out adventure. After not skiing since last Christmas, Sophia jumped right in and loved going down the slopes. Going straight down, long swooping curves down the mountain – she was doing it all. It was a perfect sunny day to be on the slopes, but after living in Europe for 6 years – what’s with the no-beer at lunch?
