Local Park: Forsyth Park, Surrey

Do you like to explore new places with the kids? Do you stay within a radius of your home or do you venture further? We have regular haunts we take the kids, places like Redwood Park, Fun Fun Park, the beach in White Rock and South Surrey’s Crescent Beach. Though, we like to find new…

Head over to the Pacific National Exhibition Forum aka the PNE Forum for a day filled of model trains. The Vancouver Train Expo is on November 10th and November 11th. I don’t know about you, but…

Camping: Guys Trip to Rolley Lake

When you think of the word ‘camping’, what comes to mind first? Tents, Trailer, RVs? When I think of camping I think of tents, cooking over a Coleman stove and roasting (burning) marshmallows over a campfire. Camping is not everyone’s cup-of-tea. Most people I have talked to recently are more into Glamping. Essentially, bringing as…

Berry Picking at Emma Lea Farms in Delta

This past Father’s Day, I decided to take our little guy out for some strawberry picking action before the end of season. Our regular strawberry picking farm was closed this season due to some difficulties so I looked around online to see what other farms were in the area that we could go u-pick some…

What We Do In Tofino With Kids

It was that time again, the time to go on a little family adventure and this time we set our sights again on Tofino, British Columbia. We have been to Tofino two previous times as a family and my wife and I have visited numerous times before having children. It is a great place to…

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,…

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…
