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…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Rawson Lake June 11, 2017

Another weekend with my boy, another adventure to get going on! Originally we had planned to go to Ptarmigan Cirque, but the highway was not opened yet.

Spring is here! Time to SPRING into something new… May 12, 2017

I intended on writing this post as spring had begun, not when it’s almost over, but here I am! Better late than never right? Spring has been fun, and busy! Looking back at all of the adventures Nolan and I had together last year, and adventures I had with some great people, and wondering what…

Mommy & Me Adventures: Ptarmigan Cirque, P.2 – Aug 9 16

You did Ptarmigan Cirque again, so soon after you had already done it? Yes, yes I did. I honestly thought I would never repeat-hike but, I lied! That has quickly changed, ha-ha as I have repeated a few and would love to repeat some others. I had to repeat this one, as it was the…

One of my FAVORITE  hikes so far this year with my beautiful boy! The rain was not going to stop, and we were not going to let it stop us either! I was on Facebook one day, and I came across this post about best hikes in the Kananaskis with kids, so I thought I…
