With our little boy who 13 months old, it's a little harder to be 'spontaneous' parents but yesterday, the urge came back full force and a little after lunch, we left the house to pick-up the hubby's nephew on the way to visit the village in Whistler (where the Paralympics are currently being held). Though the weather was not at it's best (the rain was pouring in Whistler by the time we arrived), the skies finally cleared to give us a chance to sight-see and visit some of the local stores.
Dylan and his Kuya (term for older brother, cousin or friend) Jath all bundled up in the back seat of our tiny (but very reliable!) car. It was a two hour drive to Whistler and both boys were sound asleep on the way up and coming home.
Sea-to-Sky highway... the view is always breathtaking up here.
Want some fries?!?
Dylan saying "CHEESE!"
Jath, at 11 years old, is seriously the best babysitter I can ever ask for --- here he is showing the ropes to his younger cousin on how to properly enjoy the playzone at McDonalds.
A quick photo of the boys in front of McDonalds at Squamish. Don't be fooled by what they are wearing --- it's freezing up here!
Finally made it to Whistler! Stopping for photos --- not sure who these people were!
Checking out some paraphernalia inside the Olympic store.
More photo ops!
Darn right he's got the Right to Play!
Jath with his favourite Tito.
The baby boy cross-eyed from checking out how to drink our coffee! (No worries, it was an empty cup).
A quick family snapshot --- the hubby was taking a photo of Jath, of course.
Have you done anything spontaneous lately?
