While she is here we are being like being tourists and going to Granville Island and other areas of the waterfront, going to the movies and Chinatown, riding a little ferry boat, having fish and chips at the waterfront and ordering KFC (chicken), both of which are her favourites, going for a picnic and maybe swimming if she we can find one of my bathing suits to fit her, relaxing in the garden and having a small birthday celebration.
And if that isn't enough, thrill of thrills, we are going to see the musical, "Mary Poppins" and we are so excited! The only other time we took in a musical together it was her favourite was "Beauty and the Beast". She enjoyed it so much and so did I! Mary Poppins will play at the same venue, The Queen Elizabeth Theatre where I also saw the Soweto Gospel Choir in April of this year. You can read more about that fantastic concert here.
When I was a child, I loved the character of Mary Poppins and I was especially enthralled with how she brought out furnishings from her carpet bag when she moved in as the children's nanny. Who could ever forget her songs "A Spoonful of Sugar" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" ? The musical should be a lot of fun and a once in a lifetime treat.
What about you dear reader? What do you like to do when your niece visits?
