Things To Know Before You Take Your Kids Blueberry Picking!

Things To Know Before You Take Your Kids Blueberry Picking!

Sure it may seem easy to just go and grab a box of blueberries from the store and call it a day. But with this gorgeous Summer weather we need to take advantage of just soaking in the sun and teaching our kids the beautiful ways of providing and working for what we get! I’m not talking about child slave labour, I’m just saying that it shows kids so much more pleasure when they pick what they eat!

Into The Woods We Shall Go…

You all know how much I love photo sessions, it’s one of my favourite parts of blogging. But when you say to your family “We’re doing family photos” the joy gets a little sucked out of it with their reaction of pure crying. haha The kids cry and complain, outfits always get dirty right before photos, everyone looks in opposite directions or picking their nose (cough cough Ella!) It’s usually a battle that I’m always willing to fight for, because common…I fight for these photos so that our family will get to enjoy them for years!…

We still try no matter what and there are plants out there for those of you who can’t keep any plants living for to long!…

Chilliwack’s First BBQ & Corn Fest

If there are three things that come to mind when you think about Chilliwack, it’s usually the mountains, the weather & the corn. I remember when we first moved to this little/big city everyone would tell us how amazing the corn is, well it it! Every summer I start to crave it knowing that the fresh corn season is around the corner! This year Chilliwack will be celebrating it’s first BBQ & Corn Fest. WARNING: Should not read if hungry……
