Edi­tor’s note

Westcoast Families - - Editor's Note - Stephanie Mac­Don­ald Edi­tor

we don’t know about you, but in our WCF house­holds it’s not just the wee off­spring that are look­ing for­ward to mak­ing a splash this sum­mer – we all can’t wait for the hot sul­try days where tak­ing a dip in the lake, run­ning through the sprin­kler, or fling­ing your­self down a dizzy­ing wa­ter­slide is the most ef­fi­cient way to cool down. Whether you’re camp­ing, on a road trip, or hang­ing out at home this sum­mer, we have ev­ery­thing you need to know about South­ern BC’s wa­ter parks and wa­ter­slides, so you can have the most fun pos­si­ble, with no sur­prises (like driv­ing an hour to a place and find­ing out your child is three inches too short to get on the best slides). If you’re think­ing of mov­ing, cu­ri­ous about the other ar­eas sur­round­ing us, or even just spruc­ing up your present home, we’re happy to share what’s go­ing on in Lower Main­land real es­tate, and we have been speak­ing to some of our area’s top real­tors about what makes their neigh­bour­hoods so spe­cial for fam­i­lies. In de­sign trends, we get the down­low from in­te­rior de­sign ex­perts on how to cre­ate in­spir­ing places for kids to ex­er­cise their imag­i­na­tions, as well as laneway hous­ing op­tions that are in­spir­ing ar­chi­tects and en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists equally. We sin­cerely hope you’re read­ing this while loung­ing in a sunny deck chair and sip­ping on a frosty bev­er­age with an um­brella in it, but even if you aren’t, sum­mer is here and it doesn’t take much to get out there and en­joy it. See you for our ex­cit­ing Back-to-School is­sue in Septem­ber!
