December has been special this year in Vancouver. There has been snow on the ground more days than not. It has caused a lot of trouble for the busses and drivers of the city, but it has also been pretty magical for all the kids. Here is a few of the special things we have spend our times doing this December:
VanDusen Christmas lights
It has become a tradition for us to enjoy the Christmas lights in VanDusen. This year was more magical with all the snow on the ground though.
Solstice Party at the beach
Michelle invited us to celebrate solstice with a bonfire party at the beach. It was cold and there were ice on the ground, but it was so cosy with the fire, lanterns and snacks.
Skiing in the parks
One week night Christian and F spend two hours skiing in the cityhall park. They had to stop because Christian got to tired ... can you imagine?
On a later day Michelle and I took the kids skiing in Queen E. I skinned up there along the roads towing F in the sled. It was a big faff, but we did get a few runs in. And then there were of cause also sledding, snow play and rolling down the hills.
