Half Day at the Vancouver Aquarium

I think it was a Christmas gift that my mom got for my wife and I, tickets to the Vancouver Aquarium. Children 3 and Under are free which is an added bonus of course. The Vancouver Aquarium is something that I could also go back to, multiple times a year. There is also something fun…

New Member of our Household; Monkey the Betta

When we had a tour of “A”‘s preschool a couple of weeks ago, a large bowl caught my eye. Inside this large bowl was a red fiery fish; a Betta splendens named Monkey. You probably know them as Siamese Fighting fish. Well that had me thinking, I wonder if “A” and “W” would enjoy having…

Backing Up Family Phone Photos with WD MyCloud

In this day and age of technology, a lot of people have smartphones. The downside to some of those smartphones is that lack of expanding storage space (yes Apple, I am looking at you!). Even with the ability to expand on storage, you may want to access smartphone photos from a central location. What about…

Family Travel: Costa Rica

Our family trip to Costa Rica was back in the beginning of 2015, roughly when “A” was 19 months old. We love traveling and wanted to go on a family adventure before “A” was required to have his own seat on a plane. My wife and I have been to Costa Rica before; actually this…

Product Review: Gro-Clock

Right off the bat I’d like to say what might work for some, may not work for others and vice versa. We started to sleep-train A at age, I think 6 months? I’m sure I am wrong on that but it was fairly close to that age. He’s been pretty awesome in the sleeping at…

Day Tripping to Chilliwack

What do I like about Parental Leave? The ability to do little day trips with the family on days when we normally could not do it because of my Monday to Friday work schedule. My wife recently went to DinoTown with our little guy A and mentioned that she’d like us to go to Cultus…

Beach Day

Then great thing about where we live, is that we are so close to the beach. The better part of that is because we’re residents of White Rock, we always buy the annual White Rock Pay Parking Pass, which means we can park in any paid spot within the borders of White Rock; That’s great…

Parental Leave for 10 Weeks

It is not unheard of for a husband/father/spouse to take parental leave, in fact I have known a few individuals who have taken the full allowable time off of work to help with the first year of their child’s life as their spouse either was not working or was not eligible for time off. I’m…

Should I or Shouldn’t I?

Oh I think I shall. I perhaps should have started a blog about parenting, or at least my experience as a dad when our first child was born 3 years ago. I hummed and I hawed about it and never really thought I’d have time to do it. Fast forward 3 years and add a…
