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…

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…

Tribune Bay - Hornby Island by Tyler Ingram

Family Trip: Hornby Island in the Off-Season

Do you have a place you like to vacation to with your family? Is it local or is it abroad? We of course love traveling both abroad and locally but lately we have stuck around the BC area and with that we love hitting up Hornby Island. Hornby Island is one many Northern Gulf islands…

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…

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?…

Day Tripping to the Othello Tunnels

My 10 week parental leave is coming to an end shortly and one of the small day trips I wanted to do during my 10 week leave was visit the Othello Tunnels out in Hope, BC. Part of the Kettle Valley Railway, the Othello Tunnels (also known as the Quintette Tunnels) is situated in the…

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…

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…

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…
