Canadian Wildlife Encounters at Parc Omega Winter

“Thank you so much for bringing me here. This place is absolutely amazing!” It was one of those moments a mom could never forget. That fact that several hours into our trip, my son would take time out of his little life to pull me aside and thank me was truly something special. And [...]

Rideau Canal Skating – Bucket List Adventure For Every Generation

Let’s be real, life is not often full of Hallmark family moments. But our Rideau Canal skating adventure was pretty close.

Winterlude Guide for Families

Ottawa sure knows how to throw a party! We weren’t at the festival even two minutes before our kids were taking off in different directions full of excitement, exclaiming which activities they wanted to do first. I was grateful not to be the only adult to run—chase—watch, play and otherwise keep up with them. [...]

Say Yes to New Adventures When It Is Much Easier to Say No

The e-mail showed up at the very end of May. Our family had an opportunity, three weeks later, to go to Tofino for two days and try surfing. It was the kind of all-expenses-paid-everything-planned-out-for-you invitation we could not refuse—but we almost did. Why? Well June is a busy month to take the kids out [...]
