If you have a six year old daughter chances are you’ve seen the movie Tangled. I’m not going to lie… I like it as my as my little girl does! The lantern release scene is especially moving and from the first time we saw it my daughter has been enthralled with lanterns.
We’ve spent time learning about lanterns, and she’s even asked to go to China for her next birthday to see them released in real life! (Apparently I’m raising a dreamer!)
We arrived an hour before sunset and got to take in the beautiful warm “Summer” air. The mountain had a variety of kids activities going on including interactions with their resident owls, and some special guest animals on site in celebration of Chinese new year… goats!
As sunset approached we all headed over to the balcony over looking Vancouver and the ocean. We got our lanterns but were sure not to open them until the last minute… they were made out of rice paper and we didn’t want to rip them.
