The Second Helpings are getting ready to head north to beautiful Vancouver, B.C. It will be our first family vacation via train! I am so excited to see how The Little Helping reacts to this new way of traveling. I am preparing myself for him to be unimpressed but based on the growing number of Thomas toys underfoot, he should be totally jazzed.
This trip will be a double family vacation with our friends and their toddler. Everyone is crossing their fingers for mostly dry weather but I am realistic and re-water proofing our parkas tonight.
It has been far too long since my last trip across the border. I have a secret little shopping list for treats that are hard to find in the U.S. The rest of the time will be filled with walking, playing with the kids and finding great places to eat! Tops on my list is a great spot to have Dim Sum, with tempting vegetarian options.
B.C. readers or frequent visitors, please give us some suggestions! What are your favorite spots in Vancouver to grab a healthy meal, dine with the kids, or have a picnic? Where do you like to take young children on a rainy day? Any great spots for music, art, people watching, or second-hand shopping? We are hoping to do a little bit of everything!
