Since our most recent trip I can’t help but think of where our family might travel to next. Even on our last day in Hawaii I said to my husband, “What’s next on your list?” It is no secret that I love to travel, and this year I have made it a goal to get out more all together as a family to explore areas both near and somewhat far. Here are five North American Family Destinations (on the West Coast) that are on my list to visit this year.

5 North American Family Destinations on our 2017 Travel Bucket List

5. Vancouver Island

Two years ago we went to visit family just out of Nanaimo on Protection Island, it was so dreamy and peaceful. I would love to head back there again as well as take the kids to downtown Victoria to do all things touristy.

4. Prince George

Because sometimes it’s not the place you want to visit but the people. We have friends in Prince George that we plan to go visit and cannot wait to take the trip up there in the Spring. We try to make it a yearly trip to see them but with having Evelyn last year, this trip didn’t happen. 2017 we got this.

3. Seattle

We have taken a number of trips to Seattle in the past, but we didn’t get a chance to make it last year. This might be a great idea for our five year anniversary as we went to Seattle to celebrate our first anniversary. Watching a Mariners game would be up on our list of things to do there too!

2. San Fransisco

If we can make number five happen and if we drive there then San Fransisco is going to be on the list of places to take a pit stop. When I was in Grade One we drove to Disneyland and also stopped in San Fransisco, I would love to relive that childhood trip with my kids.

1. Disneyland!

Now this is something that I am still convincing my husband on, but I think that this year would be the perfect year to take the kids to Disneyland, yes Evelyn might be a little young but Ezra is the perfect age. If we wait for Evelyn to be older, that could work, but I don’t want Ezra to miss out on the magic of Disney at the age he is now.

When we go (positive thinking here) we will stay at the Country Inn and Suites that is in walking distance to Disneyland, Anaheim. The brand new hotel is modern and stylish with some major key features that have me excited to stay there.

  • Spacious rooms with spa inspired bathrooms
  • Complimentary hot breakfast
  • Wi-fi Included
  • Large outdoor patio with pool
  • Unforgettable view of Disneyland’s fireworks

  • We got crafty and turned our Nesquik container into a monster piggy bank! Ezra sure had fun getting crafty, I got to sit back and watch 😊. Of course I tried to be a funny mom by shaking his monster’s hand 😊. Our time crafting was also enjoyed with a healthy snack of fruit!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are hoping that we inspired you to get creative too! See a little behind the scenes of our creation in my stories and then head to the Nesquik Imagination contest to submit your craft creation for your chance to win 1 of 4 $500 prize packs. We've got a full summer ahead of us and I'm sure some of you mama's are looking for something to do, so here it is! PS go ahead and take our piggy bank idea as the starting point for your contest entry. Good luck!⁠⠀

  • @Breyers Delights just launched three new flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge, and they are the perfect reward after a long day’s work. I've been working hard on living a healthier lifestyle and exercising more but I think it's also important to find balance and indulge in delicious treats every now and then.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Made with high quality ingredients and only 80-90 calories per serving (125 ml), @Breyers delights gives me the delicious taste I've been craving. Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the new flavours and try them out for yourself! #Breyers #BreyersPartner #Ad
  • Each issue I contribute to @ilikeherstylevancouver’s magazine and every single time it’s SO HARD to keep it a secret about what I’m about to share.

I teamed up with @lisa.pineda.fit to put together some morning stretches to start your day on a positive note. I am IN LOVE with the feature, would love it if you grabbed an issue or checked it out online, also swipe right to see two of the cutest photos of Evelyn and my mom stretching it out that @juliechristinephotography snapped just as we were getting started (I may have given them matching hairstyles too )
  • This is the first summer where I haven't worried about having all the kids home, the no naps and everyone potty trained has definitely helped with that!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I also know that having ALL THE SNACKS on hand when we head out for adventures is KEY! Summer Days is back at @shell which means you get 10 Bonus AIR MILES when you buy any 2 snacks or 2 drinks. Next weekend is the FIRST weekend this summer we actually don't have plans!!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give us some ideas, what's your favourite Summer activity or destination?⁠⠀

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.

  • Hello Buddha•Full friends. Happy weekend 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If you have time you should head over to @shopwillowbrook and the @buddhafullprovisions pop-up bus for a unique foodie experience! They are here today and tomorrow from 11AM-6PM for all your plant-based & vegan food needs. Soooo good! The kids slurped on some smoothies, and I enjoyed their Açai bowl up on the top of the bus as the summer sun radiated down. I guess you could say the whole experience is designed for a Budda-full life 😉  #ad #shopwillowbrook
