We started the day by relaxing in the hotel. After husband went to work the children watched some shows on Treehouse (we don't have television so watching treehouse during our travels is their little treat), whilst I got ready for the day.

After lunch which I bought from Harvest, the little deli shop down the studios, we went to Queen Elizabeth Park. The idea was mainly to visit the Bloedel Conservatory. 

Once there my jaw dropped by the breathtaking views overlooking Vancouver. So the trek up there was worth it. I believe that's one of the reasons why I'm totally and helplessly in love with that city. 

Anyways, before taking it all in we went into the conservatory which was fairly cheap for the three of us, about $10. The children loved it. We took photos of the birds. We were enjoying the tour until I saw a mouse. I didn't freak out as I would if I saw one in my house, but it was time for us to go get some fresh air. 
We bought ice cream and went to
enjoy the view that is complete gratis (free). I took photos with my telephoto lens and I was glad because I could see some monuments from that distance. The children were into running and just playing with the gorgeous view as their backdrop.

To top off the amazing visit to Queen Elizabeth Park the children saw the Seasons in the Park restaurant and wanted to eat there. I would have never entered, I don't know why, maybe because it didn't see myself in such a beautiful location I just admired the amazing architecture afar. With its glass windows and chandeliers. The children kept running towards the building so after they said "Mum let's go to eat at the chalet." I went to see the menu to see if it was something we would enjoy or more likely I could afford (I've been to some posh restaurants that I ended up paying too much and eating too little). The price was reasonable so we got a table and I'm telling, you should stop by Seasons in the Park for a meal when you're are in Vancouver. 

The waiter was so kind and captured a moment for me to remember with the children. 

It was such a beautiful day. The children had fun and I enjoyed each minute of it.

How to get there

I walked to junction Blanca and 16th Ave. and took bus 33. I then changed at junction of Cambie Street and W 42th Ave. to take bus 15 towards Olympic Village Station. I got off at junction of Cambie Street and W 33rd Ave, in front of a church which I don't remember the name. I walked the remaining 10 minutes up to my destination. It would cost you $5.50 for a return. 

She sat there just for a fraction to take in the beauty of the place.

They face you make when you are photographed by your sister and mother!
