Shortly after a weekend of bonding with Ryan Reynolds's family in Vancouver, Blake Lively and her boyfriend kept the family fun coming during their vacation.
On May 7, the couple was spotted taking a ferry to the Vancouver Island city of Nanaimo. A few hours later, they were seen dining at the Blue Ginger Restaurant downtown along with Reynolds's brother and his wife.
"The couple came in and had a very enjoyable evening," a source tells PEOPLE. "They were both casually dressed and sat with their backs to the rest of the room. They stayed for a couple of hours and enjoyed several Asian dishes off the menu."
On Tuesday afternoon, Reynolds and Lively were spotted at the Duke Point Ferry Terminal, where they picked up drinks and sandwiches before boarding the boat for the approximately two-hour ferry ride back to the mainland.

She's practically one of the family!
Blake Lively 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.

Owen Wilson's preferred method of transportation in Vancouver? His bicycle!
The actor, who was soon back in L.A. for the SAG Awards, pedaled to Cardero's Restaurant, where he joined friends for brunch after zipping through downtown in a peacoat and hat. When he pulled up, the actor asked if he could park his ride in the kitchen, and the restaurant's manager obliged. Wilson grabbed a seat by the fireplace, then enjoyed views of the harbor and Stanley Park during his 45-minute meal with pals.
After brunch, the actor headed out on his bike again for a solo ride around town – and was later spotted in Stanley Park. While in town, the actor also enjoyed the nightlife, meeting up with friends for Italian food at The Bibo and, later, Pierre's Champagne Lounge inside Chinois Restaurant, where he attracted a crowd of female fans who spent the night chatting – then, later, Tweeting about their encounters. – Christine Kilpatrick

Blake Lively was in Vancouver with her beau Ryan Reynolds, whose parents and brothers live in the area. During their Canadian visit, the two were spotted at the Original Cupcake Shop, where they picked up a small cake and several cupcakes. "They seemed like a really sweet couple," an employee tells us.
The two, who have been spotted getting cozy in New York and in Boston, also stepped out for breakfast at Benny's Bagels, followed by a shopping trip along West Fourth Avenue.

Cory Monteith was named the grand marshal of Vancouver's Grey Cup parade, and the Glee star sure dressed the part. Sporting a BC Lions jersey, with his name printed on the back, the actor waved to the crowd from the back of a large gray pick-up truck and even snapped his own video of the crowd, which he later posted on Twitter. Before the parade got moving, Monteith signed little footballs and posed for pictures with fans. He also posed with the actual Grey Cup, the trophy awarded to the winning team in the Canadian Football League championship game. And as Monteith was driven down the parade route, fans would run up and snap pictures. Says an onlooker: "He seemed to love the attention." – Christine Kilpatrick
