Proud parent alert!
My daughter carved this most amazing Hunger Games inspired pumpkin last night! I wonder if they ever had anything like this in District 12? Maybe the Capitol? I bet Katniss could carve something like this with one of her arrows!

Across from English Bay in downtown Vancouver, these flags proudly stand their ground waving and welcoming everyone who passes by. On a warm, breezy summers day, they attract tourists wanting a symbolic photo to capture their vacation to Canada. Nothing says "Oh, Canada!" more than our beloved red and white maple leaf.

Summer weather didn't really start here in the Lower Mainland until about two weeks ago. Since then, it's been beautiful! It's been warm and sunny every day. June was a rainy mess, but if there was any silver lining, the roses seemed to have loved to get so much watering last month and then all of the glowing hot sun this month.
I have never seem this rose bush produce such giant blooms. They look like big fat fluffy snowballs. Oh, cr*p, did I just mention snow during this lovely summer post?! I probably just scared off the sunshine... Ooops.

English Bay in Vancouver is a summer hot spot, literally. Swarms of people, tourists and locals, looking for a scenic place to enjoy a lovely ocean breeze and be in the middle of it all, flock to this beach on hot summer days to people watch, play in the sand, and watch the world go by. Not a bad way to spend a July afternoon. Not bad at all.

So, you like coffee. You also like Baileys. But, it's too hot out to drink hot coffee and Baileys on the patio in the evening...so lo and behold, I came across this idea online to freeze leftover coffee (what leftover coffee?) and add it into Baileys as a cool and refreshing drink for those sizzling summer nights.
This was nothing short of AWESOME.
Frozen coffee "ice cube"
1 oz of Baileys
2-3 oz of milk (try chocolate milk for a mocha)
Gently stir and enjoy!
