It’s been a really fun summer with the kids and this week is no different! We’ve been checking stuff off our Summer Bucket List, enjoying the weather and enjoying each other. It’s all in this weeks 3 Things Thursday.
1. Family Fun in Whistler
The hubby and I haven’t been to Whistler since before we were married, more than eight years ago! Being back in Vancouver and only a two-hour ride a way, this past weekend we decided to take the kids and head up for one night. During our 24-hour trip, we had fun at Whistler’s beach, Lost Lake. Had a delicious dinner at 21 Steps and ice cream from Cows then enjoyed the Whistler Olympic Village before heading home. There’s so much more we want to do so we are planning another trip in the near future.
2. Wedding Anniversary
We also celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary this week. We did our traditional ‘watch the wedding video’ and then after the kids went to bed we headed out to a new casino in our area to have some fun playing slot machines, something we haven’t done in forever. We back home, up .05 cents, not bad at all 🙂 We are also going to do an overnight trip without the kids in the next couple of weeks, either river rafting or zip lining and biking in Whistler. We’re trying to be more adventurous these days!
3. A Special Request
Today we spend the morning at the beach with some friends. We’ve done that a few times this summer, part of our fun Summer Bucket List. We played in the water and made lots of sandcastles. Today, the kids decided to find as many feather’s as possible and stick them onto the sandcastles. They were very proud of the finished product. My 5 year old requested me to take a picture of the castle and then asked if I’d put the the picture on my blog. It totally melted my heart and I definitely think it’s worthy to add in to this week’s #3ThingsThursday!
