A lot of people told me while I was pregnant with Carter that my life was never going to be the same. For the most part that’s true. I couldn’t imagine my life not knowing what my little man’s face looked like and I certainly couldn’t imagine that I’d love someone so much, whose poop I had to clean up. But as Carter’s getting older I realized not everything had to change.
Before Carter was born my sister, Sheila
, and I would partake in these gluttonous day-long food tours. We’d explore different neighbourhoods in Vancouver
and other cities to see the best their food scene had to offer. It was always delicious and always a lot of fun. Now that Carter is a bit older and has a lot more energy to burn we’ve gone back to our ways. Not only can things stay the same, but in my opinion getting to involve my little guy makes the experience all the better.
This past weekend we revisited one of our favourite places in Vancouver, Bella Gelateria for their hot chocolate and gelato. Being praised as the best in the world (two time winner of the Florence Gelato Festival in Italy) it certainly won Carter over.
Teal seems to be having its moment recently. In a barely there notion, of course. It’s way of emitting winter tones make it more attractive than ever. This time of year doesn’t always have such an appeal on our toddlers, though, and has somewhat taken a toll on this wee toddler. We try to find entertaining ideas/venues again and again each day, but hey, some days come short. A nice trip to Barnes & Noble, though, saved this one in particular. And we found ourselves most appreciative of their spot-on play area, which basically rocked his little mind… And… his hair.
–all with hints of that sweet color–
We spent quite a while walking around and exploring, and he even gave into some hand holding. (The Best.)
When we aren’t running into the city for some new scenery, though, we settle with rearranging Rev’s room often and give him some stimulation where we can. (Teal has invaded us there, as well!) How do you keep your babes inspired during the winter?
