While I am actually a bit bummed that we have not had an epic snow fall this winter, we are definitely appreciating all of the sunshine. I’m not counting winter out just yet, we have had snow in April before. We really needed some time out of the house, after work yesterday we loaded into the car right away and headed to Tynehead.
We went to a different part of the park though. Normally we go to the hatchery, this time we went to the the meadow side and to where the pedestrian overpass access is. We knew Evie would find the overpass interesting. What we didn’t realize is just how loud it is up there. Talk about some serious road noise. Evie did love seeing all the vehicles passing underneath, she was thrilled to get to wave at all the motorists, and point out the motorcycles.
We went back to the park area and headed down one of the walking paths. It is gorgeous in here. Some of the flowers are starting to bloom, the sunlight that reaches through all the trees is wonderful. This really was a much needed stroll out. This is a great little area for a family day out. If you have a dog there is also an off leash park area.
Evie started to get a bit grumpy, she woke up on the wrong side of the bed after her nap. She cheered up when she found the perfect walking stick that was just her height. She did ditch it at one point, and grabbed our hands to help her run faster. We knew she was done though when we stopped and she just plunked down to the ground. Jason carried her back to the car. I think she was part faking being tired though… I saw all the smiles behind the hood of her jacket as daddy was carrying her.
I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful place, and to have so many parks we can venture to. I put a request out to friends for suggestions of different places to check out. Spring break starts this coming weekend and I want to get out and explore with my little family.
Do you have any suggestions for parks or hiking trails in the Lower Mainland?
