One of my favourite memories when I was growing up in the Lower Mainland was going for an afternoon drive with my family. We’d pile into our van and my dad would plot a course to park, playground, beach, or historic site — it was always quality time spent playing and learning together.
When it was time to head home, on occasion, we would get a very special treat: a stop at the White Spot Drive-In. If it was after lunch we would forgo the Pirate Paks and order pie and milkshakes, which would wobble precariously on the long car-hop tray sliding across from driver-side to passenger windows. Cheeks rosy red from playing outside, bellies full of blueberries and whipped cream, and nodding off just enough that I would get carried inside the house when we got home. That’s my kind of Family Day.
