    I love heading up to Whistler from Vancouver! It’s a great place to allow the kids to enjoy the outdoors and it’s a nice little getaway which isnt’ too far from home.

We went this past Monday but we got totally rained-out after only a few rides and they shut it down. Our kids took it in good spirits, but we will definitely take another shot at it before the summer is over because Wonderland is most often the highlight of our summer!! 😀

It has swimming, green rolling hills, camping. pinic tables, ball diamonds and large areas for kids to run, all nestled down a hill, unseen until you reach the office. Great place to let kids run off the extra energy that comes with summer weather!

    My favorite nearby vacation spot is Sherwood park (a suburb of Edmonton, where I live). there are lots of pretty manmade lakes and nice parks.
