Stopping For A Breath Of Fresh Air in Cultus Lake

I was having one of those days where I had quite a few things to get done and a short time to do them. I was already running behind, had been stuck at the longest train I had seen in awhile and was feeling a little bit stressed on my drive to Cultus Lake. OnContinue reading “Stopping For A Breath Of Fresh Air in Cultus Lake”

Cheekye River FSR

Just outside of Squamish heading North on Highway 99, I spotted a sign indicating a recreation site in a few hundred meters. I stomped on the brakes, turned on my signal and turned right. Recreation Sites are more my style and typically less busy than Provincial Parks. It is obviously a popular spot, as IContinue reading “Cheekye River FSR”

Take the Back Roads, Not the Highway

Sometimes I just feel the need to get in my truck and drive. My husband was home today and after a week full of home owner disasters, I felt the need to go for a drive. I texted my husband and made sure he didn’t have plans, then texted my friend to see if sheContinue reading “Take the Back Roads, Not the Highway”

Camping Lasagna

This lasagna recipe is based on one that I made in Grade 12 cooking class many, many, many years ago! I just kept tweaking it over the years and now I honestly do not even use a recipe anymore! So, in order to write this post I had to make it again and actually measureContinue reading “Camping Lasagna”

Lighthouse Park

One place I have always seen posts about but never had the chance to visit was Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. Since I had some errands in Vancouver, I decided to make the extra twenty minute drive from our destination and check it out! I started my day with two kids who insisted life isContinue reading “Lighthouse Park”

Green Lake Camping 2015

Green Lake is an amazing lake located in the heart of Caribou country! One year we had worked all summer and had not done any camping all year and it was breaking my heart that summer was almost over. So August long weekend, I made a reservation, convinced my husband to drive three hours, andContinue reading “Green Lake Camping 2015”

Road Trip with BC Ferries

When traveling on the BC Ferries system, paying for a reservation is definitely worth the extra Reservation Fee, in my opinion. My mom refuses to pay the extra and will sit and wait, however I feel our time is worth the $10 Fee and having to sit there with your kids and watch the ferryContinue reading “Road Trip with BC Ferries”

Road Trip with Kids- What to Pack

Now that my kids are older, road trips are considerably easier. They can pick out and pack their own toys and clothes(with a check by Mom), and somewhat understand what we mean when we say ‘7 hours of driving’. When they were little, I used cheap solutions like noticing which toys they played with frequentlyContinue reading “Road Trip with Kids- What to Pack”

Mother’s Day Adventure 2020

The last few years I have decided to spend the day with my own little family making memories together, adventuring up a mountain.This year we returned to one of our favorite places, East Harrison FSR. We skipped the extra 25km to the natural hot springs due to Covid-19 concerns this year and stopped at aContinue reading “Mother’s Day Adventure 2020”
