Lots of little activities

Happy (Continuing) Birthday Nara!

Nara's birthday is at the end of April and we had a party in April.  We didn't open gifts at Nara's birthday party and it took us a while to work through the backlog - roughly a gift a day.  We asked Nara what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted a small digger.  This is Nara opening that gift -  with face paint she got at daycare.

Forest Fairies Day at Burnaby Lake

I found this event on twitter - Burnaby lake hosted a Forest Fairy gathering at the Nature house.  There were lots of little girls dressed up with wings and skirts and two face paint artists with a half hour long queue.

Nara Getting Face Paint

Nara had skating class at 12:45 and Claira needed to get home for a nap so we couldn't stay too long, but even for a brief stay we had a good time.  I didn't know this, but if you have a boy at a fairy event, he dresses up as a gnome.

Burnaby Central Railway

Just down the hill from Grandma's house is the Burnaby Central Railway - a "ride on" scale train park where you go for rides through the park.  They have some amazing small scale engines that pull a train full of kids and parents around the park.  This was our first visit and we didn't have much time but we did have a good time - I'm sure we will be back.

Richmond Nature Park

We had a brief visit at the Richmond Nature Park - turns out we brought the wrong boots for Claira!  She likes the flowers but didn't last long.
