Where Does The Time Go?

Griz Days 2015 Fernie Winter Festival parade - The Griz, Mayor Mary

We had a such a fun weekend in Fernie, I forgot to post on Small Town Social! That’s what happens when the sun comes out and the kids want to be outside from morning to night.

This next weekend is going to fly by just as quickly. Griz Days are upon us.

I’m not going to list all the events going on in Fernie next weekend because there is this really informative website called ferniegrizdays.com which will making your planning a breeze.

 

Highlights for us: Dummy Downhill, Craft Fair and the Parade. We will try and watch the fireworks and maybe participate in the scavenger hunt but the rest will be bonus if we see or participate in them. Time flies when you’re having fun.

Big Little Lions At The Arts Station

“Big Little Lions is the ferocious songwriting duo of Helen Austin and Paul Otten. Both successful singer/songwriters in their own right, they met while both on a conference songwriting member success panel and then a couple of years later started the band from afar, with Helen based on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and Paul in Cincinnati, OH.

It was while Paul was producing for Helen’s JUNO Award winning album that they became Big Little Lions and together they have won many awards including 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition, the top prize of Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Canadian Folk Music Awar 2015 for Ensemble of the Year.

Family Dinner At Loaf Bakery

What a perfect night to go to Loaf Bakery, downtown Fernie, for dinner with the family. Phil invited us to dine at Loaf Bakery and it was a perfect night out with delicious food and live music in a place that felt like home. The night started off quiet (perfect for kids who are teething and hungry) and by the end the place was full and bustling (perfect for kids who are teething and cranky).

Everyone ordered a pizza, even though the pastas and burger of the night all sounded amazing, but I hadn’t tried their pizza yet and I heard good things. My Chicken Pesto pizza was brilliant – a great flaky, crunchy crust to go with the rich flavours of the pizza. Rod’s pizza, Pipeline, had a good kick to it and made his nose run all evening long but he was smiling at the same time. That’s a good thing.

Dessert was ordered and our beers were finished and everyone left happy and ready for bed. I love going to restaurants that make dining with children easy.
