Family Day at Capilano River Regional Park

The weather network predicted 16 degree weather and sunshine all day!  We were definitely spoiled for family day this year, so we made a day of it.
We headed to Capilano River Regional Park for the first time and it was a gorgeous day. It was also very crowded because everyone else was also outside enjoying our random summer day in the middle of February.
We had a picnic lunch as soon as we arrived.  There was one table in the sun and we snagged it right away.

There were some amazing views of the mountains.
Not a cloud in the sky...

We walked across the Cleveland Dam, which was awe inspiring.
The sunlight streaming in through the canyon, illuminating the mist, was very magical.
I took this picture from a footbridge that spanned the river.

And now here are some cell phone pictures.
We also visited the fish hatchery, which was lots of fun for all three of us.
Miko especially liked the salmon displays.

There was a cool waterfall to walk behind.

We realized right away that the trails were a little to steep and rocky for the stroller.  But holding Miko's hand the whole time wasn't very good for our backs either.... Our solution, which ended up being great, was to let Miko ride on Luke's shoulders.  He is finally old enough to hold on and actually enjoy it up there!

One last picture of the dam from the viewing platform.
