Comments Off on Discover Rays at The Vancouver Aquarium

Over spring break the kids and I had the opportunity to go visit the Vancouver Aquarium, with so much excitement from my son about the “Discover Rays” exhibit. This exhibit provides a hands on experience with the Rays, you get to watch them soar through the water and feel them slip beneath your fingers.

I didn’t quite know how excited Ezra would be about this experience, as not every kid will jump at the opportunity to place their hand in a pool of Rays but I was surprised at just how much him both him and Sophie enjoyed it.

The exhibit is open throughout regular hours of the aquarium, though it does close down periodically to give the Rays some rest between the flow of children and adults. The kids chose to wait to be one of the first’s in line at the 2PM showing of the Rays, we got a nice spot right up close and personal. After we had a good visit I encouraged the kids that we needed to let others have a turn, it wasn’t easy prying them away from this attraction.

Both Ezra and Sophie continued to talk about this experience once we got home. It was Sophie’s first trip to the aquarium and she learnt a new favorite word while we were there, “Whhaalllee!!!” was what I heard for a lot of the drive home and then in the bath that night she kept saying, “Fishy, Mommy, Fishy!!”

Check out some of the photos we snapped of our recent visit at Discover Rays as well as as more shots throughout the Vancouver Aquarium.

  • 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
  • Ok guys. @thebirdspapaya is a freaking babe, in and out. She’s started #SLOWMOBODYFLOW and her post had me like 😳🙊😅😂🥰 all the feels. But mostly left me feeling like, I gotta try this. For me, when I share progress photos like photo one, I always feel weird because even though I look smaller I know that the jiggle is still there, even though YOU cant see it. I’m so proud of where I’ve come this year in being more active and feeling stronger. Yes sometimes I wish I didn’t jiggle, but this post from Sarah got me excited to share that jiggle (swipe left) and not feel weird about it so I’m hopping right into her convo with a little SLOMO tummy jig.
  • I've recently taste tested @Breyers delights NEW flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge and they all taste amazing!
⠀
Each of the three flavours have 4 g of protein, are only 80 - 90 calories per 125 ml serving and contain high quality ingredients like Canadian milk and cream, cocoa, sprinkles, fudge, brownies and sustainably farmed vanilla beans.
⠀
Sounds pretty good right?! Want to try them out for yourself?

  • So I did a thing and tried something new (surprise surprise, right ha!) ⁠
.⁠
I wanted a new style sunnies for this summer, but I loved the frames so much I also wanted them to be my everyday indoor glasses too. Well, I went for it, splurged a bit and got my first pair of transition lenses. One minute they are perfect for indoors and the next I'm rocking sunnies in the sunshine. Took me a bit to get used to, but easily my frames of choice these days. #ad #irisvisualgroup 📷@juliechristinephotography
