Sometimes the best adventures involve your friends all in one park with a birthday cake and some giant dice.

For Johnny’s bday bash we didn’t go too far: Trout Lake in John Hendry Park, a swimmable lake in the middle of East Van. It’s a popular setting for families, hipsters, readers, musicians, rollerbladers, swimmers, runners, dog owners, farmer’s markets and meditators thanks to both its accessibility and the feeling that you’ve stumbled upon a lush paradise in the heart of the city.

We set up camp there for the day and while I ran around retrieving Johnny’s birthday surprise and making sure the party went down without a hitch, the camera got passed around and, well, madness ensued. The best kind.

Special thanks to Dani Vachon and Bonkers! Games for providing the special sauce for the party with their giant games!
