Road Trip

I have fond memories of summer road trips with my family when I was growing up. Every summer, we would pack up our station wagon and go! We would camp in northern Ontario, drive as far east as we could get to the very tip of Cape Breton Island, explore the Anne of Green Gables house on Prince Edward Island, and have fun attempting to speak French in Quebec City!

While the destinations were the star of our vacations, as I’ve gotten older I’ve become fond of the journey, as well. Watching the landscapes change would be magical, for the longest time it would be the same, but then a curve in the road brings you a whole different scenery. The last few road trips we’ve taken led us to Tofino, Salt Spring Island, and Leavenworth, and the journey can be just as amazing as the destination. View Post

Rain jackets, rubber boots, and even waterproof one-piece suits come into action here in Vancouver, where the weather is anything but predictable! I took my kids up to Grouse Mountain to check out the Ford Explorer Kale Gate festivities (like a ‘Tail Gate’ party, only healthier!), and we had the best time munching on delicious foods and dancing to the live DJ.

Of course, we didn’t hike up the Grouse Grind… not with a four year old! Instead, we took a foggy gondola ride up to the top of Grouse Mountain. We were greeted with balloons, a DJ, food, and Tyto – the Grouse Mountain Owl Mascot! After we posed with Tyto (who is very quiet…!) we ran to the Kale Gate festivities to eat and play in the cars… View Post
