Today we find ourselves half way through July- it is safe to say Summer is well under way- we are finding our Summer grove and loving it! Our family has fallen into a laid back and easy way of living- one with no schedules- one of sleeping in- of water fights and ice cream for dinner. Now that we have school age children I can see the days ticking off the calender to September and am determined we don't waste a single second of fun!
Saturday night found us getting family photos taken by the super talented photographer, blogger and Mom Lisa Pickard- not only is she easy to work with but she is amazing with the Littles. These images are just quick shots from my phone- I can only imagine what Lisa captured. She chose some pretty magical spots- including a little grove over run with bunnies- Miss Lo was in heaven! Aside from a run in with Blackberry bushes the evening was pretty much a picture perfect Vancouver night!
I had the good fortune to hold an artist talk on Sunday at Opus Framing and Art Supplies- based on fostering children's connection to nature I presented three fun and easy crafts to help kick start your Little's imaginations. I had such a fun time with the small crowd of lovely souls who were so interested in being there and learning. Thank you to Dallas and the crew at Granville Island who helped get me all set up and supported me during my talk. Over the next week I will be sharing the three crafts that I presented at Opus- the projects are easily done with supplies most people have on hand.
So here we are at the start of a fresh week- the sliding doors are wide open with the cool marine air seeping in- a light breeze is blowing and the sky is so blue it looks like a crayon. This is a day to hit the beach with buckets and not come home until the sun is setting again- which is just what we will be doing today. After all there are only 48 more days like this left!
