Disney’s Boardwalk Inn Review

I wasn’t looking forward to staying at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn. First, change is scary lol I’ve loved each resort we’ve stayed at so much, I’m always sure nothing could ever come close to being as good. Even when we did a split stay at Port Orleans Riverside and Animal Kingdom Lodge (club level 1bedroom suite). […]

Camping Connection

It’s easy to drift away from those closest to us. Even as we see them every day. We sometimes forget to take a moment to sit and chat about our thoughts, our hopes, our fears. Sometimes we get so caught up in parenting that we forget our children are people too. People with big ideas, […]

Off the Path

Children love to go on adventures! There’s nothing greater than spending the day exploring the world, discovering new places, and especially facing fear and danger. The wonderful thing is that something that is scary to a child, is often seen by the adult as pretty tame. It helps ease parents into watching a life full […]

Wolf Tag

I created this game as part of our “Sword in the Stone” movie activities. I thought it deserved it’s own post because it was so much fun! Game play is really simple, and it balances out so even the little players have a chance of being ‘It’ and of tagging others. This is key in […]

This is Halloween

Halloween’s one of those holidays that I love so much! It’s so much fun to make the costumes and see a little deeper into our children’s personalities as they decide who they’re going to be each year. But as much as I love Halloween, I find it always sneaks up on me. We end up […]

Autumn

There is nothing so wonderful and joyous as autumn in Alberta. The brisk air, warmed by brilliant blue skies and sunshine, wrapped in an earthy musk that lightens the step and quickens your pulse. Before the snow hit, our family took the time to get out and enjoy one of the gorgeous forests in our […]

A Blast from the Past

We finally made it out to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, it was a month later than planned but we made it! It takes about 3 hours to drive there from where we live and at the 2 hour mark Brom decided he needed to go home. He was tired from waking up early […]

Stepping Out of Comfort Zones

It takes a lot of soul searching, and twice as much work, to elevate myself to become a person I admire. It’s incredibly difficult to admit that I didn’t like who I was. It’s so hard to peal back the layers, find the parts I don’t like, amplify what I do, and rewrite new layers. […]
