Mama in the City

A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Sweet Sweet Summer!

Oh summer! I love you! You are seriously great! I love a good reason to wear a girly skirt and a big brimmed hat and hang outside in the grass all afternoon with my family and summertime gives me that perfect occasion! It feels almost mandatory to take advantage of sunshine and free local city events. So, today we walked down the street to one of the local parks to take in Vancouver's International Jazz Festival and it was rocking. Good swinging tunes and of course all the street vending food you can get your hands on. Which means my husband was in his summer element eating mini donuts.

We relaxed in the grass and hung out watching all the people come and go; people watching is always a good time at any event. Summer in Vancouver means feeling the fresh breeze of the water as the sun beats down on your shoulders. It was one of those days that feels perfect and you can forget all your worries and put off your 'to do' list and you can just be.

Ooh! Well thanks for asking. We are keeping it low key this summer and going to enjoy my last few months at home. So more city activities and a few island ones too.
