As I search for interesting things to do for families with children for Being Savvy Vancouver I come across things I like to try with our family and today was one of those times. We went to Ladner for a day of May Days fair fun and geocaching in another local park. Aidan got to try some of his first fair type rides and Quinlan got some quality time with the grass.
Aidan was really exited to try some of the rides and nearly got on a very small roller coaster. Up until we were actually on the platform and he realized that I wasn’t going to be on the ride with him he thought the Dragon was going to be the very best time ever. Luckily there wasn’t a big line and he did have fun on the other fair rides. He rode on the “train” (a set of Flintstone cars on a track) and then we went onto the Berry Go Round. I wasn’t as fond of this ride as my sinuses were not feeling to well, but the boy enjoyed himself. The fish merry go round was the first ride he tried by himself and he had a blast. I will get Anthony to put some of the video up on the Left Coast Floyds.
As we went around the fair grounds we took in all the free activities. The Delta Police Bear was a little bit intimidating for Aidan though he did like him from a distance. We got to hold some bunnies, played in the Fire house, got a new fire hat and ate some of the requisite mini doughnuts. There was music and face painting (though like always Aidan shied away from anything like face painting or stamps on his skin) and some travelling jugglers and other interesting characters. If you have a chance to go tomorrow I highly recommend it. It was a fun day to be out in a new place.
PS We got 4 caches in Ladner Harbour Park. Another park we would not have found without geocaching. Even if you don’t geocache it is a nice park full of easy trails and a nice playground at the entrance.
