It’s already Thursday. It’s been a fun and busy week so far and I can’t believe we’re already into December! Here are my 3 Things Thursday that I want to share with your this week.
We’ve had playdates at our house before, but they’ve usually been for my five-year old and if they have any siblings they come along and Kyah plays with them. This week, Kyah had her very first playdate on her own with a friend she made at preschool. It was so adorable to see! First they were just playing with all the toys, going grocery shopping, cooking play food, building blocks and getting the dolls dressed. It’s so fun to just listen to them talking and interacting with each other. Then they had lunch and after lunch we made mini banana chocolate chip muffins which were pretty much devoured. I had to share a photo of these two little chefs, hard at work.
2. Small Victory
I’m very excited for my sister-in-law and her family as they have very recently opened a bakery and coffee house in Yaletown called Small Victory (I love the name!). I got a look inside before they opened and it’s a beautiful place to enjoy a delicious coffee and freshly baked goods. I can’t wait to go and sample some of their pasties and an espresso. If you happen to be in Yaletown by Homer Street, make sure you stop by and check them out, you will definitely thank me later. You can also follow them on FB and Instagram for more mouth watering photos.
3. Bright Nights
Bright Nights at Stanley Park is now open and our family is looking forward to visiting! It’s an annual event that Vancouver looks forward to in Stanley Park with a Christmas train ride and and a plaza that twinkles with three million sparkling lights, beautiful displays and live performers. The kids haven’t been before since we’ve only moved back from Winnipeg two years ago and I can’t wait to see their eyes light up when they take it all in. Entrance is by donation and you can purchase tickets for the train ride. All the donations and a portion of the tickets sales go C Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund. You can buy tickets here. I’ll make sure to take lots of pictures and let you know how it went.
