The first time I watched the movie version of Mary Poppins, I was filled with wonder as the Banks children were introduced to the infinite talents of their new nanny. What would Mary Poppins do next? How could I also enter the world that she created?

Throw in a bit of hiking, outdoor yoga, and sushi, and I’d say we’ve pretty much got it in the bag this weekend.
