The River {Unscripted Documentary Child Photography}

Well, it’s not actually a river.  But the other day, as I walked down our driveway, the warm springlike weather had created a small river on our lane. The rivulets of water carved small channels as the water followed the destination chose for it by gravity, down the hill. The cheerful sound was musical and… Read more »

Pirate Adventures-The Magic of Childhood

I think every young boys’ imagination has been captured by pirates at some point or another, and my boys are no different. Imagine sailing the seas, following adventure whichever way the wind blows, while searching for treasure. Eyepatches, sword-fights, hooks for hands, and of course, treasure maps, it all makes for the best stories ever…. Read more »

Making Memories-Family Camping Trip to Brazeau

Last week our family went on a camping trip. Without realizing it, 3 years had went by since we had been camping, two years since we had any kind of summer vacation as a family. It’s easy to be so busy with work, and life, and let time move by, without realizing that you haven’t… Read more »

We’ve lived here for eight years, and have not explored very many hiking trails, or the back country, literally out our backdoor, so it’s high time for us to start taking in some of… Read more »

Spectacular Fireworks at the Calgary Canada Day Celebrations

Last nights’ fireworks show at the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary was truly awesome. For us small town, born and raised people it was the best we’ve ever seen. For our kids, it was the first fireworks show they’d ever seen. An epic experience for them, that will be hard to match. Growing up, I… Read more »

The Calgary Zoo Through a Child’s Eyes

Yesterday my son’s preschool class went for a field trip to the Calgary Zoo. It had been years since we’d went, the last time being in 2011, when David was just a baby. It’s always so awesome to see the kids so enthralled and excited about the animals. Our first stop was to see the… Read more »

Once we discovered that the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit was there, we knew we had to include it in our family outings for this week. This was our family’s first visit to the Science Centre, and it was a very fascinating… Read more »
