Who’s Gonna Win the Ring Toss?!

When it comes to summer, I love to take every opportunity I can to be outside. I do enjoy some moments of sitting in my lawn chair watching the kids, but I also love to be involved in what they are doing. Outdoor games and activities don’t have to be anything fancy to be fun. […]

Making Memories: Explore the Calgary Zoo!

Summer is my favorite season of the year. Yes, there are great things about all the seasons….I love the freshness & newness of spring, the beautiful fall leaves and crisp fall evenings, and the winter nights spent by the fireplace, drinking tea.

Snow, snow, snow, its beautiful and clean and the kids can hardly wait to build with it…the explanation of what is the right kind of snow for building a snow man is lost on our 3 year old so far. For me that’s where the fun stops, I really shouldn’t complain but somehow I still […]
