Travel Moments: Wild Horses Monument

Whenever my daughter runs like mad, hair streaming behind her, long limbs stretch out, she reminds me of a pony. I was vividly reminded of this when we stopped at the Wild Horses Monument in Central Washington recently. Officially called “Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies”, this artwork was installed as part of Washington’s state centennial, […]

Risk-Taking for the Bubble-Wrapped Kid

Risk Taking for the Bubble Wrapped Kid Risk Shield

We know we shouldn’t do it. We know we should just sit there and let them figure it out. We know that by intervening every single time that something remotely dangerous is going to happen, we are ultimately not helping our kids. But what if you can’t help it? If you’re like me, you can’t […]

Kids can Celebrate Festival of the Grape at the Chateau de Kids Fun Zone!

Festival of the Grape Stomping

It would be too hard to list all the reasons the Okanagan valley of Canada is so incredible, but “top wine making region” certainly factors up there for me! Coming from a Greek family, wine was a part of every special occasion. I recall feeling extra important when at Christmas my mom would put a […]

Stand Up Paddleboarding with Kids

Stand up Paddleboarding in Canada

Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing sport around the world right now for good reason. It’s easy, there’s a low learning curve, and most people can jump on a board their first time out with no previous experience or lessons. It’s also a great family sport because parents can take turns out on […]

Silverwood Theme Park, Idaho

Silverwood Theme Park Idaho

I love Theme Parks. They are like a favorite kitschy, big haired, loud relative that everyone loves because they’re so entertaining. Theme Parks exist to give us all a good time (and yes of course, to make a good buck while they’re at it) and they do it very well. So it was with this […]

Our family loves to go out on adventure, especially if that adventuring involves camping and getting to play in the great big Canadian outdoors.

Playing in Parksville, Vancouver Island

Playing in Parksville Vancouver Island

My in-laws live in Parksville on Vancouver Island.  We have visited many times for a day or two but this summer we decided to deposit ourselves on their doorstep for four days.  I knew that a successful visit would require daily activities/outings for my kids.  They love heading out on adventures and Parksville (and the surrounding […]

6 Tips for a Smooth Start at Kindergarten

6 tips for a smooth start to kindergarten

My baby is going to kindergarten. He’s a social little guy and I think he’s going to do well, but between you and me and the moms at the playground and the cashier at Superstore and anyone else who will talk to me, I’m a bit nervous. I’m a firm believer in “well-prepared is half […]
