May long. It’s the first long weekend of the year that promises outdoor adventures. This year we’ve lucked out, as the weather has been absolutely perfect for any type of activity you could dream up for the long weekend. Most people book their May Long plans way ahead in anticipation of sunshine & fun, but if the Victoria Day stat is looming and you still have no plans, don’t worry, I’ve got ya.
In case you haven’t noticed, vegetarian and vegan diets seem to be the way of the future – it is now easier than ever to adopt a healthier diet and reduce your meat intake. With meatless options everywhere from fast food (thank you A&W) to holiday meals (Tofurkey, anyone?) There really isn’t any reason to not jump on the meatless bandwagon – at least once in a while.
May, and Spring, has finally arrived. The sun is shining and you are feeling ambitious! Ambition to get outside and do stuff. But what to do?
Let me help you out. Here are 10 fun outdoor activities for you to tackle in the Fraser Valley when the sun is shining and you’ve just got to get out there.
April showers bring May flowers.
That means many of us are braving the cool temperatures right now; digging in our gardens, freshening up the yard, pulling out our patio furniture so we can spend as much time outside in May when everything is beautiful and in bloom.
I don’t know about you, but my backyard could use some help before I start inviting friends over for patio barbecues. I started Pinning beautiful yards and gardens before I launched myself into a three hour wayfair.com shopping spree which came to a sudden halt when I hit the “check-out” button.
It’s April! Spring is in the air and Easter is right around the corner. No doubt you’ll be throwing some chocolate eggs and bunnies into baskets for your kidlets, but if you’re looking for a little something extra, check out my list of fun Easter activities to do with your kids.
We had a little bit of a fake summer in March, didn’t we? Long days full of sunshine, warm temperatures and next to no rain. It definitely had me dreaming of summer days and adventures in the sunshine.
One of my favourite things to do when the weather is nice is pack up a cooler of good food and drinks, load up my kids and find somewhere to head for a day full of sunshine & exploring. I’ve put together a list of ten amazing picnic spots for you to check out this spring and summer.
Is there anything better than fresh air, sunshine and food? I don’t think so.
Get your bibs ready. The Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival is coming back to the Fraser Valley. The first stop is coming up on Saturday, April 27 and happening every subsequent weekend after that (except May 18) until the middle of June.
It’s winter in BC. We rarely ever get winter, but I mean this week, it’s really winter. That means hibernation and spending a little too much time in front of our screens. Scrolling around Instagram and seeing some beautiful photos? And all you’ve got are some selfies in front of the fireplace?
Since you’re a go-getter summertime mama you’ve probably packed a couple of picnics for your afternoon adventures.
