celebrating six years...

in celebration of our 6 year wedding anniversary
the hubby and i took the kiddies out for some family time.
it was a beautiful vancouver summer weather
that greeted us.

(just a quick note that this post is photo heavy...
and you can also click on the photos to enlarge)

we started the morning off by packing the kids in our car
and heading to tim hortons drive through for some breakfast
timbits for the little man
coffee, b.e.l.t. & bagel with cream cheese for the adults

our next stop was toys r us
just because we felt like picking up some small trinkets
for both the boys

dylan wanted to get on one of the rides
and asked us if he can share it with kaelan
so of course we gave him his baby brother to ride along!

our next and final stop was granville island
this must be one of my favorite places to visit in the city
as you can never really run out of things to do or see

the hubby was not very happy though when we arrived
the first thing that happened to him after leaving the car
was get splattered by bird goop

yes, you got that right.
disgusting bird goop that got on his glasses
slipped on his cheeks
and hit the littlest man right on his head!

supposedly, it is lucky though.
we've been told plenty of times to buy a lottery ticket.
(and we did --- and no such luck, unfortunately)

we stopped at the public market for lunch
the little man wanted pizza so we obliged
and because the hubby is going strong on his lifestyle change (aka. diet)
we stopped at siegel's to grab some of their yummy goodness!
we both had the Lox and Cream Cheese
(wild sockeye salmon, cream cheese, red onions & capers)
it was super delicous!!!

the little man was so enthralled with the boats around
and kept yelling at the top of his lungs that he wanted to ride one
that we obliged and got ourselves on a mini-tour
aboard the aquabus 

when we got back at the island
we spent the afternoon lazing around
checking out some of the galleries
doing a bit of window shopping
chasing after the birds
and drooling over some sweets at the market

our last and most important stop
was a quick detour over at the gelato cafe
to pick up some creamy and decadent sweets
as a perfect punctuation mark to end our day

we had a marvelous time exploring a small part of our beautiful city!
it's even more marvelous that we've shared six years together
and now have two wonderful kids to celebrate our anniversaries with.
i think this will definitely be a tradition
for us to spend our anniversaries with the boys
and not just for ourselves.

I was just thinking how nice it was for you to spend your anniversary with the kids and then I read that last bit! lol!
It looks like you had a great day out. I've been pooped on by birds many a time, its not good luck. Just really annoying. Though on the plus side, at least they don't have hair. Bird poop in hair, that'd probably put an end to the day for me xx
