Check out Christmas at Hycroft (Cancelled for 2020)

Posted on: October 2, 2020

Update October 2020: This event has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID 19. I played hookey Friday and went to see what Christmas at Hycroft is all about. This was quite the production because I live in the ‘burbs, and Hyrcoft Mansion is in the west end. I think

Eagle Days and Cozy Nights at Sunwolf

Posted on: March 1, 2014

When I tell my children about the next exciting adventure we have planned, it can go one of two ways. They will be excited (which is the preferred reaction) or they will immediately launch into a bevy of over the top reactions arguing that they do not want to go

Our Adventures with Tom Sawyer

Posted on: November 16, 2013

An Afternoon at the Vancouver Maritime Museum

Posted on: January 30, 2013

When adults visit a museum with children, there is a fine line to tread to keep everyone happy. Parents want to see; look at artifacts, read stories and descriptions. Kids on the other hand are doers; they want to touch and feel. The Vancouver Maritime Museum was able to satisfy

A Morning at Koko’s Activity Centre

Posted on: November 12, 2012

Indoor play areas are such a great resource to have when the weather is bad or the kids are antsy. I enjoy taking my kids to them because most have Wi-Fi these days so I can bring my laptop or join a friend for coffee and a chat while the

A visit to the Cultus Lake Waterpark

Posted on: August 28, 2012

We were camping at Cultus Lake Provincial Park a few weeks ago and we finally went to the Cultus Lake Waterpark. 3rd time was the charm as we’ve camped at Cultus twice before but never managed to leave enough time to go to the waterslides. Verdict – It’s fun. Lots

I’m heading out to the Fair at the PNE this afternoon with my family and our friends visiting from Calgary and I am super excited! I love fairs! Last year, on our first visit to the Fair, we didn’t really plan anything; we wandered around, checked the layout of things,
