Looking Back on 2020 – A Year In Review

When I started my blog in May of this year, I purchased my domain as a belated birthday present to myself. I thought it would be nice to have a place to document my trips and share a few tips with other parents traveling with children. I thought my friends and family that enjoyed myContinue reading “Looking Back on 2020 – A Year In Review”

Bench Road FSR

If you have followed my blog for awhile now, you know that my favourite roads are the dirt ones. I took my friend for an adventure down Chilliwack Lake Road and then turned up Airplane FSR to Bench Road. It is quite hilly as you climb up and around the mountain, but the gorgeous viewsContinue reading “Bench Road FSR”

Wondrous White Rock, British Columbia

We arrived mid afternoon and cruised most of Marine Drive looking for a vacant parking stall! Once parked, we wandered from the far parking lot along the sandy beach enjoying low tide all the way to the pier. Then we walked under the pier almost all of the way out, finding lots of creatures (andContinue reading “Wondrous White Rock, British Columbia”

Ingredients: 8 Large Soft Tortilla Shells Chicken, beef, or pulled pork(optional) Shredded Cheese (I pack around 2 Cups for ourContinue reading “Camping Quesadillas”

Kettle River Recreation Area

Even the Ranger told us how lucky we were to get such a beautiful site. We spentContinue reading “Kettle River Recreation Area”

S’mores Cones

I kept seeing this trend of making S’mores in an ice cream cone and finally decided we needed to try it! My kids love S’mores – I mean who doesn’t? The great thing about the variety of cooking options is that you can make these when you’re camping, at a BBQ, or at home! TheyContinue reading “S’mores Cones”

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”
