Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre back to school contest

It’s hard for me to accept the fact that in a few short weeks kids are already heading back to school! I feel like the summer basically flew by and we’re all now in the back to school scramble to make sure that not only are our kids prepared, but our wallets are too.

Take your Disney love to the next level with Descendants 2 + #Giveaway!

Disney-Descendants-2

If you know me, you know that I’m a bit of a long time Disney fan and have quite the collection going at home. I have my faves from when I was growing up that I now share with Alivia but most recently I was introduced to a new way to expand my love for Disney!

You see, we don’t have cable so I’m a bit out of the loop on kids shows that aren’t immediately on Alivia’s streaming list. When I was introduced to Descendants at one of her friends houses I was intrigued. It seems like a natural story development for some of my favourite characters to grow up and have kids of their own!

Abbotsford International Airshow flies in August 11-13! #Events

Abbotsford AirShow 2017

If you were to ask my 6 year old how airplanes fly – she’d tell you “magic” and she isn’t far off! For kids, there is something incredibly magical about seeing planes in flight! We recently went on a trip to Squamish where we had the pleasure of touring over 4000ft up to look over the mountains and gondola – all with her sitting in the front seat! To say she was excited would be an understatement, and it’s created a love of flying in her from a very young age.

With so many different planes, pilots and flight paths the magic never has to end! Which is why we are super excited to bring her to the Abbotsford Air Show this weekend to show her just how magical the planes can be and what the talented pilots can truly do with them.

27th Annual Honda Celebration of Light returns + why we LOVE the #YVR Observation Deck! #Events

There’s no denying that summer is in full swing in Metro Vancouver right now, with temperatures staying in the 20’s most days, it’s been beach days all around! It’s hard to believe it’s already nearly the end of July and that one of our favourite events is about to light up the sky for 3 days only.

When I was younger.. much younger, it was a lot of fun to head down to the Celebration of Light early in the day to snag your spot, set up a picnic, lay out and get your tan on. Now, as a mom.. the thought of spending 12 hours in the sun with hundreds of thousands of people crowding around activates my flight response pretty quickly. As much as I love the fireworks, we needed an alternative and thankfully last year we were introduced to the YVR Observation Deck for the Honda Celebration of Light! Continue reading →
