Product Review: Motorola T100 Talkabout Radio

I recently hit my 5 year anniversary at work (a milestone for me too) and with that achievement we receive a gift for years rendered. Actually, we have a 3, 5, 10, 15 and even a 20-year service milestone we could potentially hit and with each level we receive a gift. To select a gift…

Product Review: VTech Kidizoom Camera Pix for Kids

Photography is a fairly large interest of mine as some people might already know. I was first introduced to photography by my grandfather when he let me borrow his Pentax 35mm SLR for a school field trip when I was about 12 years old. Since then, I have always enjoyed taking photos and it is…

Product Review: Dell Inspiron 5675 Gaming Desktop

One thing that I know my kids will grow up around will be computers. If I count the computers in our house the number would be 5 actual computers; 2 desktops and 3 laptops. This does not count tablets or smartphones either, that would just bump up the number a tad. Are all those computers…

Checking out Centennial Beach in Delta

I try and think of different places to go when I have the kids while mommy is sleeping between her nightshifts. We’re fairly fortunate to live so close to the beach but I thought I would take the kidlets somewhere different for a change of pace. I wanted something that had a bit of a…

Outfitting the Kids for Rain

Here on the west coast of British Columbia, or wet coast as some like to refer to it, we get a lot of rain. You might not think we do from our most recent summer, but it will rain and when it does, are you and your kids ready to get wet? Being a parent…

Pumpkins at Hazelmere in South Surrey

Finding that Perfect Pumpkin at Hazelmere

It’s that time of year. You know, when the rains come back to Vancouver and the sun is a stranger? The leaves change colours and clog up the roads and cause flooding? Well okay, that might not be the nicest thing about this time of year but you know what I do like about October?…

Family Outing: Apple Picking in Abbotsford

One of the things we as a family have wanted to do this year was find a place we could go pick apples. We did just that, we decided that on a Saturday we would pick one of the (somewhat) local farms to go apple picking and it was not quite what I was expecting,…

A Journey To Better Sleep

Having kids is tiring. I do not know of a parent out there that would disagree with me. When the kids are young and I mean in the baby and infant stages they typically wake up multiple times in the night which means you and mom need to wake up multiple times in the night…

Family Outing: Fort Rodd Hill, Victoria BC.

I may be a bit behind in writing about our family adventures, but I hope it is not too late to write about them (even if they are not fresh in my mind). Last month, in April, we planned a nice week long vacation to Vancouver Island. This involved visiting our friends for 3 nights…
