Joshua affectionately refers to our accommodation in Whistler as the “Whistler House”. I thought it was very cute of him to do that. Then I found out from The Chumsleys that their son referred to their accommodation in Hawaii as the “Hawaii House“. I guess this is a common toddler language that they failed to put in the Health Canada booklet, so I was not as informed as I needed to be.
Joshua was so excited to be in a different place that he was high and wired for 5 days straight. The place we were staying at had two levels…that means STAIRS! Stairs! Imagine that. We have no stairs at home, so it’s a novelty for Joshua. He climbed up and down that set of stairs at least 20 times a day just for fun.
There was also a bathroom that had two doors–one opens up to the master bedroom and the other opens up to the hallway. He would run in one door and out the other, doing loops using the two doors. That was probably the highlight of the trip for him.
We spent 5 days in Whistler over the new year. Every time I go up to Whistler, I am amazed by the beauty of the mountains and snow there. Even after all these years of being in Vancouver and driving up to Whistler, I am still in awe of the place.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to snowboard there this year, as I am nursing Savanna quite frequently. We took Joshua to the convention centre where they had an indoor playground set up for kids, and he had a blast there. We also did some tobogganing. The rest of the time was spent walking around in the village, seeing some friends, watching movies, and amusing ourselves with stairs and bathroom doors.
It was a nice break from the city, and a fun time to enjoy one of the most beautiful places on earth.
