Photo Friday: Kid Friendly Fun in Vancouver

Adventure Zone inside the Granville Island Kids Market
Adventure Zone inside the Granville Island Kids Market

For any foodie, a trip to the Farmer's Market on Vancouver's Granville Island is a must. While I could wander for hours, my kids are ready to move on after the first snack. To keep everyone happy, my husband walks the kids across the street to the Kids Market where they can play in a multi-story indoor play structure (complete with a ball room) for just a few dollars while I graze my way through the remainder of the market.

    That is one great hubby that you have on your hands. What a great thing for the kids to go do so that you can keep shopping!

    Is it bad to admit that the Granville Market was my favorite thing about Vancouver? I'd like to set up house inside that place, any empty storefront will do. Love the ball photo - I have a similar shot of myself in one, only I was 18 at the time. :)

    What a fabulous idea! If only all markets, shopping centres etc. were this well planned!
    Peace : )

    Why does this remind me of Ikea? It seems like you could sell this photo! It's so perfectly wonderful.

    This was the first place I've ever traveled with a baby (10 years ago). I don't remember seeing a Kids Market. I would love to go back some day and check it out.

    Is it wrong to brag?? I really did get a great husband!

    We're headed to Vancouver in May, our first trip there with the little one. He'll be too small for the ball room, but he'll love watching the big kids play.
