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.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
