Another Vancity Adventure: Granville Island and Rangoli
i've been waiting all for almost 2 weeks for this!
made a date with my cousin Nik to have lunch at Rangoli on South Granville
i decided to take them to the waterpark at Granville Island before meeting Nik
weird being at my old stomping grounds. i was excited to try this slide with the kids for the first time!
"SEE!!!! WASN'T THAT FUN?!!!"
"NOOOooOOoOOo.... I ONLY WANT TO GO 2 MORE TIMES AND THEN GO HOME...."
happy as a frigging clam. and to think after showing him photo on the computer prior to leaving the house, he was moaning "i don't need my water shorts/shoes, i am just going to run around the grass..."
TRY IT. YOU MIGHT LIKE IT. applies to food and life. suck it up.
i went down a bunch more times with chloe up until she decided she'd rather finish this bag of trail mix.
we arrived at Rangoli and the kids pounded back their shared Mango Lassi and naan bread
could not be happier
my cousin Nik and i downed cup after cup of housemade chai in these gorgeous mugs from 18KARAT just up the street
pakoras were delish.
LOVE THE MINT CHUTNEY SO MUCH. WANT TO EAT IT WITH A LARGE SPOON
spicy kebabs, pakoras and basically an indian version of 7 layer dip filled us to the brim
it was a perfect day until i realized at 3:30pm that i forgot to check on my car that was only allowed to be parked on the street until 3:00pm. it was towed. not cool but totally my fault. Nik was kind enough to join me in bussing with the kids from Granville and Broadway down to Main and Terminal to retrieve the car. the bus adventure was no problem having bussed the same route a hundred times in my eraly 20's, but the $88 was a kick in the pants.
it is 3:04am.
i have been working on labels for Ashley's wedding this weekend. we are to catch the 10:30am ferry tomorrow. oh well. then i packed all our things. and tried on 10 outfits to wear. and now i am finishing this blog because it was a fantastic day and i won't be posting for quite a while...
