Vancouver mom Lorraine AKA LoLo is one half of the JUNO nominated, children’s music duo, Bobs & LoLo. A familiar face with the little ones from her upbeat, musical preschool series, Sing, Dance and Play with Bobs & LoLo, Lorraine is also mom to two busy preschoolers. (Are there any other kind?) Her 4-year-old daughter and nearly 2-year-old son definitely keep both her and her husband on their toes! Lorraine lives in East Van where she loves the easy access to outdoor fun, yummy eats and quick commute to downtown for more ambitious outings with her family.
Lorraine’s favourite spots around town!
Pack a picnic and bring some extra veggies for the bunnies! There’s lots to see at this North Van educational farm and plenty of space for the kids to run around too.
