I know you're a modern mom who cares about her family, has a great sense of style and loves to have fun. We already have so much in common. Don't miss a post and be sure to sign up for blog updates!
It’s summer vacation season, and with Canada’s 150th birthday this year and a weak Canadian dollar, many of us are choosing to stay home and discover a little more of our home and native land. But, before you go, you need to check out the new book 25 Places in Canada Every Family Should Visit. The book, by Calgary travel writer Jody Robbins, takes you coast to coast with detailed descriptions of THE BEST places for affordable family adventures in Canada.
Well, we survived another cold snap! Thank goodness more bearable temperatures are on the way for the weekend. One lucky family recently won my giveaway of a family pass to the Acura Tube Park for #NoPhoneFamilyDay. I hope Elizabeth M and her family have a great day at the park and leave their phones behind…well, maybe one picture is ok 😉
*An update to this post: We are now living back home in Canada, and it is so wonderful to see poppies everywhere leading up to Remembrance Day.
I think there is something truly special about three sisters. I came from a family of three sisters, and then as luck would have it, I ended up having three daughters! When I moved to Calgary, Alberta I became enthralled with a trio of peaks near Canmore known as the Three Sisters.
Leave it to your teenager to be brutally honest with you. “You’re slackin’ on the blog there Mom,” my oldest daughter said the other day. Imagine!!
I finally found one. Standing in line at the post office, I saw a small green heart sitting on the counter staring up at me.
I’d heard of the Peyton Heart Project and their efforts to spread small knitted hearts around the world, but I hadn’t been lucky enough to see one yet.
After several years away, it felt great to be back in Alberta. The mountains were calling us, so we were excited to head west from Calgary and see the Rockies up close. And hey, it doesn’t hurt that American dollars go further in Canada these days. 😉
We decided to bypass Banff and head straight to Lake Louise, which is a little less commercial and one of our favorite ski hills.
