Journal Entry No. 47 | Klutch Photography | Vancouver Family Photographer

If you know my work, you know I love real moments as they happen (life unscripted) but that doesn't mean theres no room for a posed picture (as I've told you in the past)! Of course we don't really care about our clothing choices, or the hair for that matter, we're at the lake!  

This annual family picture that we've been taking at East Barriere lake has been going on since 2011, and I can't wait to see what this sequence of images will look like when the kids are adults.

To all of you out there, this is the reminder (from the pro photographer) that you don't always have to have a pro picture to keep a wonderful memory going of you and your people.  All you need to do is start taking the pic at a local or on a date that you can keep doing! Maybe by the Christmas tree, first day of school (in the Lower Mainland this is happening today!), your wedding anniversary, last day of summer vacay etc, you get the idea!

Honda's Celebration of light wasn't the main event folks! | Klutch Photography | Vancouver family photographer

For about four years we used to live in the West End, and for quite a few of those years the celebration of light fireworks display was directly in front of our living room window. Granted those days we were just two Dinks (Double income no kids) living downtown! 

This is the second time we've taken our two children on an adventure downtown on the skytrain to watch the celebration of light happen In English Bay. The first time was approximately 4 years ago, and significantly more stressful then our last visit yesterday! Now that they are 10 and almost 13, It was a breeze.

We drove down to Bridgeport, Riverock Casino, park the car and we caught the sky training in. Yes, there is a lot of walking, but it was in the beautiful sunshine! We got to check out gay pride on Davie Street, and seriously the people watching was just outstanding!

We plunked down our blanket at approximately 6 PM with boatloads of space available, and the kids (with my third oldest child, husband Greg, lol!)lead the charge, hit the ocean water (by the way, we didn't know there was a NO SWIMMING ban! Eek right but I think there all fine?!). The girls did what I like to call "a right of passage", they got to go down on the old relic slide in the middle of English Bay.  Greg got to do it as a child with his family, and I as a non-mother at the time, living with Greg in the West End got to scream down it's hot metal, sanding death curve! I loved it back in the day and so did they!

Greg and the girls grabbed some taco's for dinner, and we sat as a family, eating, listening to music and playing Rummy-Q till it was to dark to see the tiles. This was our favorite part of the night BTW.

The Redbull air show almost made me pee my pants with it's stunts, to be honest I was thinking "good lord if this plane crashes, how will be be affected" (typical mother), but of course he/she did not! The energy around us was playful with a community vide, everyone was there for a fun, safe experience.

The fireworks did not disappoint, and the level of police presence was perfect.  Crowds were large and a felt like "Shelia the cow"  that I water painted in the winter being herded down the streets, but all of it was still a great adventure had.

We were so impressed with the organization of this event, the safety level of the streets and our skytrain experience!

 

Guys, if you have never gone, go! The journey leading up to the fireworks WAS THE EVENT, the fireworks is just the icing on the cake!

Journal Entry No.35 | Klutch Photography| Vancouver family photographer

Sometimes when your kids become fucking dicks to each other, you need to lock shit down and just circle the wagons with some family time.

My two have been less than awesome with each other these past few days and so on this "WAY TO SOON IN THE SCHOOL SEASON" pro D day presented itself I dragged these two lazy broads outside for a nature walk.  They were not pleased by my persistence of leaving the house but because I'm the ruler of the world they had no choice, we took off to a nature park in Langley.

 The irony is that these two love to explore, jump and climb. They eat wild berries like there on fucking survivor. They fall in love with each other and like that dude on the commercial that was hangry and eats a Snickers bar and all normality is restored, well that whats what fucking nature does! Nature solves the "I hate you" sibling syndrome (for now).

Side note: They also got to experience some real life - a drug dealer on a bike, I hooker on a bike & an argument in the bush (by those two) and several police cars!  You think they would only see this good reality stuff in Value Village at 8:45 pm on a Friday night (It was only once that happen, they were fine! It always makes for great open door conversations)

VERY EXCITING day.  Yes children, stay in school and DON'T DO DRUGS!
