enjoyed a big family meal with boyfriend Ryan Reynolds
over the weekend in his hometown of Vancouver
On Friday night, the two, along with Reynolds's mother, headed to Grouse Mountain, a popular tourist destination and ski slope that boasts incredible views from more than 4,000 feet above the city.
Initially, they had a reservation in the more formal, fine dining restaurant atop the mountain, The Observatory, but the actor requested that they take their meal in the more casual Altitudes Bistro.
The trio took a seat near the fireplace at a table for seven, and, an hour later, were joined by more of Reynolds's family. They all hugged – then enjoyed a tray of complimentary appetizers sent by the chef.
"It was a really nice family reunion," a source at the restaurant tells us, "and they spent several hours catching up on the latest news and sharing lots of laughs with each other."
Blake and Ryan also requested a coloring book so they could play Tic-Tac-Toe.
The next day, the couple, who have recently been spending time at a country house
Lively bought in Bedford, N.Y., were spotted having breakfast at Sophie's Cosmic Café in the trendy Kitsilano neighborhood. – Christine Kilpatrick
