Pre-Christmas Christmas in Langley

Saturday morning we hopped on the ferry and headed over to Grandmaman and Grandapapa’s place for the annual event of the season, the Tousignant Christmas Party! The party was a blast, as usual, and it was great to catch up with tons of friends and family.
The next morning, we did brunch at the Newlands Golf Course, where, in addition to the great food, there was face painting, balloon creatures, cookie decorating, live music and an appearance by Santa, who was deposited on the green by a helicopter (much to the annoyance of the golfers on that hole). Brunch was a big hit for everyone involved, so look for us again there next year.
On our last full day on the mainland, we headed into Vancouver for the Christmas Market. The merry go round at the Christmas Market was a big hit for the kids, while the adults enjoyed bratwurst, beer, schweinshaxe, pretzels, beaver tails and kettle corn. The next stop was Stanley Park for Bright Nights where we walked off some of our lunch calories, checking out the light displays, and we finished up with a ride on the train.
We had a fantastic visit, and even though our ferry was cancelled this morning due to high winds, it gave us time to write this blog post! We’re considering this our Christmas appetizer in preparation for the main course in a couple weeks!

    Jealous – wish we could’ve spent more time at the Christmas Market.
