At the start of each month I like to sit down and fill my Sundays with stuff to do with the family. If I don’t put it in our calendar, we don’t actually do it. I’ve said this time and time again, but honestly! As nerdy as it sounds, if I don’t schedule it in our calendar, we won’t make the time to spend it together. Kinda sad but it’s the truth!! Lol. Anyone with me on that?? Leave me a comment!
Here are some events I’ve found and will most likely be at this month…
Summer Activities Around Vancouver in June – For Kids!
The Ladner Village Market
What: a gigantic Market that has hundreds of booths that sell fresh, local produce, flowers, food and artisan goods. You can find parking in the neighbourhoods or along Chisholm St. then it’s a short walk to the village.
When: Sundays, June 10th and 24th
Where: on 48th Ave in Ladner (in the Village) You can’t miss it. It takes up the whole village.
