• I Don’t Think We’re Campers Anymore

    I’m writing this from the comfort of my own home. I just enjoyed a cup of hot coffee, took a shower, and feel cozy and warm. Go ahead and call me a wuss, but I don’t think we’re campers anymore. Maybe it’s because we live in an actual forest. Maybe it’s because we’ve been spoiled by nice hotels. Or perhaps, it’s because camping is a ton of work for all involved. Whatever the reason, we just aren’t feeling it. It doesn’t feel like a vacation. That’s what it’s suppose to be, right? We booked two weekends of camping this year. We had to book them four months out, because otherwise…

  • Why I’m Becoming A Travel Agent (On Top Of Everything Else)

    When I announced that I was becoming a Travel Agent, most people we’re very enthusiastic. Travel has always been my passion and I already spend a fair amount of time helping others book trips. It just makes sense, right? I’ve been blogging for years and travel has always been a large part of those stories. I believe in making memories as a family and stepping outside our every day life to try new things. Travel writing has given me more opportunities to do that, but the landscape of that industry has been shifting. Currently, it’s all about that model-like family on Instagram. If that’s you, work it. Leverage it! But…

    VICTORIA with the KIDS | What We Loved About This Coastal City

    Ferry rides, history, and hands-on fun; It’s truly a wonder that we hadn’t done Victoria with the kids sooner! When my husband got called away for a work conference, I decided it was the perfect excuse to explore the city. It had been nearly a decade since my last visit. I knew Victoria was beautiful, being a picturesque city nestled on the Southern tip of Vancouver Island, but what did it have to offer families? I’d been to¬†Craigdarroch Castle, wandered the Legislature Building, and enjoyed meals with a view of the harbor. You can do these things with little ones in tow, but my goal was to find out the…

    The How To’s of Road Tripping with Kids (And What Not To Do)

    Road tripping with kids can be a bit intimidating. If you’re new to the family travel world, it’s a great way to get your feet wet! It’s more affordable, you can choose your destination based on numerous factors, and there are so many ways to keep the kids happy! Whenever I come across someone who is nervous, I remind them that it’s a lot easier than plane travel. When you’re driving, you get to set your own schedule! You don’t have to worry about anyone being bothered besides your own family, the snacks are in your control, and you can stop whenever you need to stretch those legs. Still worried?…

    When Adventure Calls You | Visiting Bridal Falls, BC

    Some days I wake up and crave an adventure. We haven’t had a ton of family time lately and felt the need to spend some concentrated time together. We didn’t have the time to spend the night anywhere, so we loaded the kids up in the truck and headed to Bridal Falls. Bridal Falls is located in Eastern Chilliwack, near where the highway splits off to take you towards Hope or Harrison Hot Springs. It’s open from 8:00am to dusk and has lots of picnic areas and pit toilets. We arrived around 9:30am and there were only two other vehicles there. The weather was gorgeous and the kids were super…
