Mother Goose’s garden has been invaded by spooky Halloween critters and creatures.  Watch out for collapsing bridges.  A little girl being scared by a spider.  A mother, who has lost her marbles, is found living in a shoe!  There is much haunting to be found in classic nursery rhymes. Enjoy the twisted cabaret of timeless nursery […]

Horsey Fun at Southlands Fall Fair

Hay wagon ride Southlands Fall Fair

We have a new tradition in our house: attending the Southlands Fall Fair.  I felt like I stepped into a 1950s BBC special and kept expecting everyone to speak with British accents.  What a ton of horse and farm-filled fun! We got there when the gates opened at 10am.  I recommend arriving early as the crowds […]

Cars Galore at the Langley Cruise In

1930 Model A

The cars were plentiful and beyond impressive at the Langley Cruise In.  While the sun blazed down, thousands of people descended on downtown Langley.  By 10am huge crowds were gawking at cars from every possible era.  My favourite was the antique stock car section.  I’m sure my preference is due, in large part, to the […]

Tomatoes and Bees in Tsawwassen

We went on a driving adventure this weekend and found ourselves in the far reaches of Tsawwassen, just past Boundary Bay.  What a lovely part of the Lower Mainland!  We had gone in search of the Earthwise Society’s Tomato Fest.  I’m so glad we went! Earthwise Society promotes sustainability through education and community outreach initiatives.  This working farm […]

Apples and Corn at Apple Barn Pumpkin Farm

Apple Barn hayride

It can’t possibly be Fall, in our house, without multiple visits to Apple Barn Pumpkin Farm in Abbotsford.  We started this tradition before our eldest was even a year old.  Now with 2 boys in tow, aged nearly 4 & 6, we have an utter blast.  This is the first year our boys didn’t live […]
