It’s Not the Little Things That Make the Trip, the Little Things ARE the Trip

[vc_row]You book a family ski trip to Sun Peaks, smiling at the thought of your entire family flowing through 360 degrees of champagne powder. The car is packed with snowboards, and you’ve counted all of the gloves, boots, and balaclavas more than once. As a mom, you’re brimming with excitement, as you know you’ve struck [...]

Sun Peaks – Where Families Really Can Have It All!

Imagine darting through a snowy village, chasing your children as they run toward the local candy shoppe. After a full day of playing in the snow they are on the hunt for a special treat and seeing as it’s your family vacation, you’re equally excited to spoil them. No matter if it’s just a weekend [...]

Ultimate BC Family Road Trip Summary

[vc_row]This summer we took off with a goal to explore our beautiful home province of British Columbia (and a bit of Alberta too.) From crashing waves on Vancouver’s west coast, to sky high mountains through the Rockies, to pristine warm lakes in the Okanagan, we put together the Ultimate BC Family Road trip and now [...]

A Slower Summer in Osoyoos

[vc_row]I could hear them screaming from the top of the waterslides as their bodies flew side to side down the big yellow tube. Their giggles and squeals represented everything that was right about summer… splashing around in the water, family time, adrenaline rushes and laughing until your stomach hurts. As we wrapped up our final [...]

Is Penticton Paradise?

[vc_row]Penticton was made for kids, or at least that’s what my children have said. A paradise for parents, where kids have lots of opportunity for free outdoor playtime combined with modern entertainment centers and amenities. If a destination was made for Summer, this...was...IT! Upon arrival, we were spoiled with local guide books and the kids [...]

Kayaking for the Kids with Hoodoo Adventures

[vc_row]When I read that Hoodoo Adventure’s motto was “work hard to play hard,” I knew that this was my type of company. A climbing gym and kayak centre in the heart of Penticton, owners Mike and Lyndie Hill are passionate about their business, but their reach far exceeds the walls of the rock climbing facility [...]

1970’s Parenting & 2018 Amenities at the Ramada Hotel in Penticton

[vc_row]A 1970’s parent would believe that summers are meant for kids. Where children should be safe to roam and play and spend endless hours in a pool or at a playground meeting new friends. Where the only device kids need is a room key, so they can come back to the hotel to check in. [...]

Don’t Just Pass Through, Make Kamloops Your Destination!

[vc_row]Sitting in the hot tub the woman beside me asked “Are you on your way to holidays or from holidays?” Which I thought was an odd question. What if I was ON holidays? The reality is that for more than 50 years Kamloops has faced the struggle of being a hub destination. One where commuters [...]

Conservation Through Education at the BC Wildlife Park

[vc_row]“We believe in conservation through education” Shayla said. “If we do a really good job and teach people how to protect and treat animals, hopefully the need for our rescue centre and park will decrease and there will be less animals in need or our care!” I’ve never heard a “zoo” employee talk like that, [...]

A Family Paddle Board? Yes Please! Meeting the Nui with Paddle Surfit!

Hawaiian for “Big” we stood at the end of the dock and looked out on what was by far the biggest stand up paddle board we had ever seen. Standing 15 feet tall and 4 feet wide the Nui board was designed by Bodie Shando, owner of Paddle Surfit. Bodie wanted to help solve the [...]
