Mother’s Day Run – Sporting Life 10K 2019

Mother’s Day Run May 2019 Another Mother’s Day race done! This is one of my favourite races, I don’t even know how many times I’ve done this one now. This is the second one that Nolan has joined me for now. This year did go as planned or as I had hoped, BUT we did…

Camping in “Jerry the Parrot” May 2019

We had been talking about it for a while, how exciting it would be to camp in the jeep together. After all, we are both pretty small and its a perfect space for us to do so. So one week, while at work, I just decided to bite the bullet. I went to my dad’s…

Summer, Autumn and into Winter 2018

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I have written. Every time I came back to my blog, I got/get overwhelmed with how much time has passed and how much I have NOT done on here. How can I even begin to try and catch up? Well, I probably won’t. So I’m going to…

Ride to Conquer Cancer Aug 18 2018

Around the beginning of 2018, my dad asked me if I would like to join him and his team for the Ride to Conquer Cancer 2018. My dad has no desire to head out to the mountains and walk. To each their own, I have tried and he says no. So when he asked if…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Sentinel Pass Aug.6.18

Two years after our first attempt, when he was much lighter, we did it! The first time we tried this, I made it through the Valley and up to the base of the switch backs to get up to Sentinel Pass. It was October 2016 and as soon as I started going up on those…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Mexico June 2018

In May, 2018, Nolan’s Grandparents had asked to take him to Mexico with them for his Grandma’s birthday and his Dad and I said sure, why not! Then, a week later – he was on a plane AGAIN, to Mexico with ME! At first, I had booked the trip for myself, as I thought Nolan going…

Kristina’s Adventures: Boarding 2018

I haven’t done a lot of boarding since I was on Maternity leave. That was a great year, my dad would come pick me up in the early morning, Nolan would be with his Grandma and off my Dad and I would go! My Dad is a big fan of Sunshine Village, so that is…

Nolan rides into 2018

Oh my goodness, my kid on a board! Heart throooooooob! We’ve had his board for two seasons now I think, and this is the first time I’ve taken him to the hill, thanks to a friend mentioning to me that kids under a certain age are – FREE! The season before and even some of…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Summer 2017

Tie Lake with our good friend, Mah-Cole, as Nolan calls her, Climbing out at Wasootch, Johnston’s Canyon, outdoor parks and more! Another summer down, and our adventures have begun to change a little. I don’t have very many friends with kids who do the things Nolan and I do, so now that he is much…

Kristina Meets Squamish, BC: (Aug 9-15, 2017)

Day 1 Another amazing trip of 2017 for the books, although, it did not start out that way. I wouldn’t consider throwing up the whole way, from Calgary to Squamish to be. . . amazing! It started around Field, BC, where I had to get out, and take care of . . . my barfing….

Kristina’s Adventure: Takakkaw Falls July 30 2017

Remember when I said, Valley view was preparing me for something in two weeks? Well this was it! I saw this Waterfall for my first time, less than a month before I said “that’s my climbing goal and I will climb that one day”. I saw it on our way to Revelstoke, and thought – that…

A bit of Summer 2017

Talk about being behind in writing! After summer ended, things got crazy busy with work, school and time with my boy. Now to Re-cap . . a few trips from summer 2017! Summer was anything but dull. It was quite. . . unreal. It’s crazy to think that I grew up here and haven’t been…
