We are so lucky to be only a 15 min drive to a local favorite spot - Granville Island. Its a beautiful place which so much to see. We have been going there one or two times a month which has been super fun for the kids. There is alot going on there which makes is really interesting for us to explore, rain or shine. (And in Vancouver, alot of the time it's rain!)

On a rainy day we'll usually start the Public Market as well as the Children's Market. The public market has so many amazing vendors to look at including fruits and veggies, beautiful flowers, candy shops, bakeries and  handmade goodies.

A few weeks ago we got to take the ferry over to Victoria to visit with my cousins and go to a family reunion.

Hey friends!

I just wanted to share that we're having a SALE in the shop!

Most of you know that this little blog started from my shop Petite Littles as a separate outlet for me to connect with my followers. But being a shop owner had been so amazing. I have grown alot in the learning process of how to run a small shop while being a mama. And it's a wonderful creative outlet for me. I love being a small shop owner!

Every year we try to do at least a few trips berry picking. Its one of my favorite parts of summer - farm life is so much fun. Our kids love being outdoor and getting the freedom to run around.

Earlier in the summer we got a chance to do a little playdate with some of our favorite gals from This Sweet Happy Life. Our little ones love to get together and always have such a great time together. Strawberry picking was no different!

 We drove out to Emma Lea Farms and had such a fun time together. Any summer day seems like the perfect day to head out to a farm, but sometimes the cooler day makes for a more comfortable day in the sun. (There is literally no shade when you're out in the fields!) We were lucky that it wasn't too hot, and there was a really nice breeze. I am sad to admit though that the day after we went, Ellie was not feeling well at home and I'm pretty sure she had some heat stroke.

We just got back from our trip to Calgary last week and had the best time visiting with our family. We spent 2 weeks hanging out and making super fun summer memories. Summer memories really are the best ones, aren't they?

I grew up in Calgary and moved away to Vancouver when I graduated from high school. I've only been back a few times since we had our children, so this was really fun for us to get together with their cousins. We had some opportunities to hang out out with some of our childhood family friends which was SO nice. We just picked up where we had left off and I love that our children are now playing together. Generations of family friends hanging out is pretty amazing.

We also met the newest baby of our family, Emma. She was the squishiest little thing, and Maddie was totally in love with her. She asked to hold her the entire time, and pretty sure she was the baby hog the whole bbq.

The kids fell in love with the city as soon as we got here. They loved all the space in my sisters home, all the trails to ride bikes and playing with their cousins from the break of dawn (literally!) till bedtime.

I love a cute DIY that's easy, inexpensive and quick to make.

I was kinda stuck on what to do for Ellie's party backdrop. I was going to do with a floral banner I purchased earlier, but the colors didn't end up going with her party dress, so I had to go with something else. I also had an idea to frame a big bunny print, but I didn't purchase one in time to print, and had to put that idea aside too.

So Saturday afternoon (the day before the party) I was on pinterest hoping inspiration would pop out, and it DID! I saw some adorable simple wreaths wrapped with greenery that I thought was SO pretty. I remembered I had these embroidery hoops stored (I originally was going to do something else with them) and thought I could use flowers instead of the greenery to go with the floral idea for the party.

This little project was actually really easy. I went to our local dollar store, and got some flower bunches I liked in a few different colours. I ended up using white, pinks, and yellow.

We've been visiting in Calgary this past week and a half and we've been soaking up the hot summer weather.

The timing was so great as we were able to take all our kids to the Calgary Stampede this year for the first time. Growing up in Calgary, I had fond memories going to the Stampede each year with my family. It was so fun seeing it through the eyes of our children and nephews. 

I thought I'd share a few pictures of our Stampede adventures from our trip. Amazingly enough, the Stamped hosts over a million people each year (from all over the world!) and is called the Greatest Outdoor Show. There's really a wonderful sense of community here!

A few tips that helped me when packing for the day...
