moses and the aquarium

it is my nephew, moses', 3rd birthday soon, 
so i wanted to surprise him, chloe and stef
with a spontaneous "vancouver adventure."

last week i took them to the aquarium for his
birthday pressie. i didn't tell them ahead of time
where we were going until i got in the car. 
(stef was freaked out!)

it was more fun pumping ourselves up
about all the animals we would see.

and thus it unfolded...

momo is so stylish. he picked out his neck scarf and hat. 

and stylish momma.

my fave pic. the lights and jellyfish look magical.

coco's adorable animated face.

at the end of the day, they hung out on my lap for a bit
outside next to the dolphins.

it was such a funnnnn day!!!

i'm so glad i could be part of their
excitement and joy and wonderment. 

it's so amazing going to the aquarium with kids
cuz they make you see things with new eyes, 
through another perspective. 

and sometimes all you need is a new 
perspective to be amazed once again.

momma's high tea

last sunday i took mom to the secret garden high tea 
company for mother's day. 

it was our first high tea together and that was fun!

in sydney i went to a lot of high teas on the weekends. 
it's a great time to relax, eat and drink the day away.

mom ordered secret garden tea. 
i ordered lavender earl grey tea. 

and as you can see, the treats looked lovely
 and yum on the three tiered plates. 

my favourite was the key lime cheesecake 
and the scones with strawberry jam and creme fraiche.

i will defs be goin back again
to have some more high tea! 

i luv u momma! xoxo

5 minute photo shoot

yep it's true. 
it was 5 min. 
and with tiff's instagram. 

not only can she shoot with big cameras, 
but also with small iphone ones. ;)

last friday nite we went on a cocktail hopping jaunt
around gastown, our fave hood. 

first hit up POURHOUSE with a bigas apple tart for 2.
then clough bar, had an apiary. 
sauntered on down to DIAMOND.
ended at houseguest.

somehow she fit in a 5 min. shoot in between 
houseguest and home. she's sneaky...

it was a good chill time. 
fun to check out the joints 
and compare them to others
and figure out our fave drinks.

diamond's still my fave spot.
