|Welcome to The Playground, a place for Vancouver families.Every week I post a roundup of upcoming family-friendly events and activities.I’m always on the lookout for fun stuff to do, so if there’s something happening that you think I should know about, don’t hesitate to contact me.|
This past weekend, the folks at Alouette Tree Farm invited us to come visit for their holiday season kick-off Pancake Breakfast with Santa. Sadie, her dad and I joined Bob, Katie, VIA’s youngest blogger Arlo along with little Cadence and her parents Mike and Leanna for a morning filled with pancake eating, ornament making, santa fearing and tree cutting!
Starting December 1st, Alouette Tree Farm will pack every weekend with festive fun including train rides, gingerbread house contests, crafts, photos with Santa and more.
Upon on our arrival, the first order of business was going on a train ride followed by some Christmas crafts and running away from Santa.
With our bellies full of pancakes and hands covered in marker, we braved the rain to cut down our trees. Alouette provided us city dwellers with a saw and some twine (and pre cut trees if you are so inclined). All we had to do was find our perfect trees.
