I don’t know what it is, but I’ve hit a major lucky streak recently. I swear I’ve rarely won anything in my entire life, and throughout the last few months, I’ve won a conference ticket, photo book credit, and most recently, a giveaway from Kidsvancouver.com (an awesome online resource for Lower Mainland families – check it out if you haven’t already!) My prize? A family pack of tickets to North Pole BC, operating up at Maplewood Farm this year. We were very excited to check it out, and luckily the weather cooperated quite nicely for us.
Our evening consisted of story time with Mrs. Claus, a personal visit and photo with Santa, a stop by the North Pole post office, a visit to Santa’s toy workshop, and a quick stop at elf school. Here is our night in photos…

Overall, Gracen had a really good time. Each element was done nicely and the elves and other staff members were all really lovely. Did it feel like we were visiting the North Pole? Well, not really… But I blame that partly on the lack of snow. The event is a little pricey (everyone 18 months and up pays between $15 and $20 admission, depending on when you go), but you certainly can’t complain when you’ve won your tickets!
Thank you Kidsvancouver.com and North Pole BC!
