Well, even though it still feels like summer, I guess labour day marks the unofficial end of summer. So I thought I'd start a new thread for us all.<br><br>
The North Shore mamas have managed to get together fairly often due to our LLL meetings and Dunderave playdates. But it would be nice to include other mamas from the GVRD.<br><br>
Anybody interested in a get together some time? We could do Second Beach again, if the North Shore is too out of the way for some.

Well, me being without a car and all, I'd love some more 2nd beach action!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Anytime is good.

Absolutely, I would love to attend more get togethers. I do have a car so anywhere is fine. I'd be happy to carpool to any meeting place too. (I have a dratted minivan!) I love second beach and I just discovered Confederation Park. It has a great playground and a good picnic area.

Hi!<br>
According to the original schedule, the next reunion would be next Monday, September 8th? I'm in. Can we go to 2nd beach?<br>
Robugmom, where is Confederation park?<br>

I'd love to come & meet you all. 2nd beach is fine with me, but is there somewhere you go in case of rain? It's supposed to start on Sunday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br>
What time do you meet?

Confederation Park is just behind Eileen Dailly pool. I think its easy to access by transit. By car: if you are travelling east on Hastings you turn left on Willingdon and go about 2 or 3 blocks. Its on your right. Park in the pool parking lot, towards the back. Then walk across the field a bit and you're there. There is a great water park (closed now because of water restrictions), a fabulous playground and a miniature railway that runs on weekends. It never seems crowded because the playground is so spread out.<br>
I'm not sure that I will be able to make it to any Monday morning gatherings this fall because Oscar is in preschool but I may be able to do Fridays. Like I said, I am happy to meet anywhere!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Are we married to monday mornings? I'd be into any other days so that robugmom could come, but if we are married to mondays, I'd be into a second beach gathering at 10:30 am on monday sep. 8--unless of course I have to do something else unexpectedly, which is usually the case, but I hope to be there!<br>
So, if it rains....I'd suggest Science World, but I can't afford a new membership until after the fifteenth (Mark's first paycheck from his new animation job--yeah!!) but perhaps somewhere else? or postpone it until the next week in case of rain? what's the plan?<br><br>
P.S.--I was "kind of" joking about a planned community--In an ideal world we could do it, but probably not in this one--it would be great though! and thanks for the commercial drive and west end tips!

I've been reading through these posts for a couple of weeks now, and finally thought I would add a post and introduce myself! My name is Erica and I have a 3 year-old daughter named Kea (tifanni, I think we've met a few times, especially at the LLL) We live around Main and 25th, and would love to meet up with some other mom's sometime - unfortunately we are also starting preschool this fall and so are busy Mon, Tue and Wed mornings. Any other time would work for us.....until I go into labour, which could be anytime now. Otherwise we'll catch you in a month or so!!!!!

Diego has started preschool too, so our "free" days are Monday and Friday. Can everyone else express their day preference? maybe we can move it to Friday? because I think the LLL meetings are on Monday, aren't they? Hi Erica <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> how exciting you are having a baby soon! Look forward to meet you.... oh there are so many new Vancouverites I haven't met!<br>
Robugmom, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"> I know that park, I just didn't know the name!

As a Westender I'm all for Second Beach. And Science World works for me in the event of rain.<br>
I've gone back to school so I'm up at UBC on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So any other day than those works for me. Although I am childcare sharing with a friend so I have an extra 15 month old on Mondays and Wednesdays, if I can't walk from downtown to the meeting place we'd have to bow-out. The long and the short of it is Fridays are great, but I'd be up to seeing you all and meeting the new faces on Monday or Wednesdays too.<br>
Boy it'll sure be tough to coordinate all the scheduels <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"> .<br><br>
So unless I hear otherwise, Alias and I, as well as our friend Lucy, will be meeting those who can make it at Second Beach at around 10:30. Or in the event of rain, Science World. And to be quite honest, I really really hope it rains. We need it bad!<br><br>
Welcome Erica (******'s mom), hopefully we'll get to meet you and your dd on Monday.<br><br>

I'm in for Monday...if I could just get some directions. I haven't been to 2nd beach since I was a kid & can't remember how to get there once in Stanley park.<br>
I also have never been to Science World, so some info about parking, how much to get in, etc. would be helpful.<br><br>
Nicola will be in pre-school Tuesdays & Thursdays, so the other days work, but a regular Friday meeting sounds like it's going to be best for everyone.<br><br>
Looking forward to meeting some of you in person!

Ok Ok...I was all excited to meet you guys and then I lost track. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> And when we arrived, our landlord decided to sell our flat after we paid our rent all summer to keep it open for us!!! I am so mad at him! Anyway...we are looking for a new place to live. We actually like the Marpole area and are hoping to stay here cause we talked our friends into living here too! Grr...anyway does anyone have a 2-3 bdrm basement or apt they want to rent to an attachment family? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> With a good bus time to UBC? Thanks.<br>
Meggan<br>
Oh, yes, I think Monday would work if I can find out what bus would get me to 2nd Beach...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

OK, I am confused! Are we doing Mondays or Fridays? I would definitely prefer Fridays because then I could make it! I thought LLL meetings were on Tuesdays, oh wait, maybe you guys are talking about the North Shore. Anyway, what day is it going to be? Cheers!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Hey everybody!<br><br>
Mondays are not so good for me b/c of North Shore LLL which meets every 2nd and 3rd Monday of the month. We're getting a really good group going there (with now several MDC members, lol).<br><br>
Fridays are great for me.

Sooooooo, raise your hand if you vote for Friday (sep 12) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br>
Looks like Friday is better for all.
