Illuminate Yaletown & A Birthday
February isn't exactly the warmest or
driest month in Vancouver so getting outside is always a bit of a
challenge. Yaletown is trying to create a bit of a
destination mini-festival in "Illuminate Yaletown" and it didn't
take much of an excuse for us to hop a bus and check it out.
(We also went to the 2009
The festival closes off a few blocks of Yaletown and sets up a
number of different instillation. Some are shows with
performers, some are interactive displays, some are basically
advertising for the restaurants.
Far and away the most popular were the
fire dancers. The crowd was at least four people deep and
getting just a glimpse was a bit of trick. Turns out there
was a trick - one of the local cafes had a good side view if you
purchased food or drink. Some snacks and an awesome view -
what's not to like?
James Turns One!
My sister throws some pretty good birthday
parties so we try hard not to miss them. She invites some of
the kids from her prenatal group so there are lots of kids all the
same age ready to play together.
Of course this day is really about
James. James is into everything - half crawling, half
gliding. Everything goes into his mouth for a good
suck. There was lots of exciting things go on on his
birthday, but I think the wrapping paper was his favorite.
Some of the toys he got were for a little older kid (he'll grow
into them) so all the other kids were interested in what new toys
As with any children activity, it's not long before it's nap
time. Thanks for the party!
