Hello world! We are the Grahams and we are a family of 5 living on Vancouver Island, BC. We love exploring the outdoors and we love to travel and play. So far we've been to Mexico, Costa Rica, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Peru and we dream of one day moving to Spain short-term.

Camping with a baby: this was one of the unknowns of our trip but little C handled camping like a champ.
Fillongly Provincial Park: Our campsite was connected to the beach via a small trail. The boys had a great time having free range bike/scooter time (this is the first time we've let them go off on their own). We collected a lot of sandollars and shiny black rocks from the beach.
The Beadnell Homestead: The land that used to house the Beadnell mansion was left preserved. This land is a part of the provincial park as the Beadnell family donated the land to be used as a park.
GIANT cookies almost as big as your head!
Tribune Bay didn't disappoint and the grandparents came to visit us for a beach day. We even managed to convince the grandparents to take the boys for an overnight so we could spend a night on Hornby (almost) kid-free.
Parksville: Mini-Golf/Bumper Boats
We surprised the kids with mini-golf/bumper boats on our drive from Courtney to Tofino. They had a blast and the pirate boat was a big hit too!
All those months of research on beach sun tents and we ended up using a home-made shade fortress made of driftwood.
