This isn't much of a vacation, considering some vacations some families take, but this summer we're planning on 3-5 days in my hometown. My husband has never been there, and the kids only once-and then, we were only there for two days for a family function. We have a few ideas of what to do, but I'm at a loss for the other days.
The place we're going to be visiting is in the Lower Mainland, BC...near Vancouver. Those of you readers who are from BC can give me some ideas, right?
We're thinking of spending one of the days at Cultus, as that was where I spent the majority of my summers growing up. I love that lake!! I'll probably also go visit my Aunt and Uncle who have a house close to there, after we're done for the day...maybe.
I want to spend some time in my hometown showing the kids and my husband where I lived, grew up and went to school etc. Hubby wants to do a bit of shopping, as do I, and I'll want to visit my Oma. I'm actually thinking of seeing if she can have everyone over or something so that we can see the whole family.
That takes up two days, but what else do we do? We have considered White Rock, Stanley Park (not the aquarium), and I definitely want to take the kids on the Sky Train and see a bit of downtown Vancouver.
Apart from that, we're kind of out of ideas. My husband says nothing duplicate that we have here in the Seattle area. So no Science World, aquarium, no game farm...that sort of thing. Our home base will be Langley.
Whatever ideas you have, please share them. I want us to have a fun few days!
