A Music Fest – and Houseboating – For The Whole Family

Canada, ROAM By May 17, 2018 No Comments

Robyn Cyr is one hip and awesome grandma. During the day she plays with her grandkids, aged 10, six and two, at the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival. They romp in the bouncy castle and play games in the Family Fun Zone and pound on bongos, shake tambourines and dance in the interactive Playzone. Of course, there are drinks and treats from food truck alley afterward. Then the kids go home to the babysitter and Cyr gathers her husband, daughter and son-in-law.

March Break – Without The Mishaps

I just love March break, there’s no school and we are free to travel with the kids and explore. I think they really do need the break! In all the excitement, it’s really important to make sure you’re prepared before you rush out the door. It’s all about contingency planning – think about the things that could go wrong and planning for them so you don’t waste a minute of your precious family time on common (and avoidable!) vacation fails. Whether you’re hitting the slopes or a water slide, make the most of your time off with these simple tips.

Exploring the East Coast in a 2018 Traverse

auto, Canada, GEAR, ROAM By October 24, 2017 No Comments

The more I see of my birthplace, I wish I had explored extensively and heard tons more stories from locals as I grew up. I am feeling abundantly thankful for Chevrolet Canada for inviting me to drive the amazing Traverse around the Bay of Fundy. Youth may be wasted on the young, but travel at any age is never a waste. Even in your own backyard. I vow to take as many road trips and holidays as I possibly can with my family in order to broaden our minds and strengthen our bonds. The kids will have to do the trek through New Brunswick and Nova Scotia with me in the future, because there is nothing like the Maritimes. Sociable!

Have a Little Faith – Just Take this Leap!

LIVE, play, Seen, USA By August 23, 2017 No Comments

Children have big dreams. Usually, these dreams seem so far-fetched that grow ups will say, “That’s impossible,” but the heart of a child knows better. Even if the youngest of my companions during a screening of the animated film Leap! could see all best friends Felicie and Victor really need is the courage and the faith to take a leap if they want to realize their dreams of reaching Paris to become a ballerina and inventor.

The best laid plans can fall by the wayside when you’re travelling. The majesty of your destination, the excitement of the journey and all the planned activities can make you forget about the health precautions you take in every day life. It’s easy to forget routine on a one in a life time experience where there is nothing routine. These are some vacation health mistakes that are easy to make and how to bounce back in time to enjoy your vacation.

Movie Night Goes Italian

International By July 31, 2017 No Comments

My family and I have been travelling in Europe and I want to keep that magic alive when we get home. That’s why I’ve assembled a play list of movies about Italy so I can remember our trip and the beauty of a country I am so in love with. I remember 15 years ago, when I was in Italy, buying Italian bridal magazines because my husband and I had just gotten engaged. Now, travelling there with my kids, it was so special to share the magic of Italy with them.

Here’s what Netflix has to watch about Italy:

Roots & Blues, Sun & Fun: Salmon Arm Family Road Trip

Canada By July 27, 2017 No Comments

Join us for a guest post from our friends at FestivalSeekers:

Taking the kids on a road trip is a great way to make the most of a summer vacation. But it’s not like the good old day where you and your best buddy could just pack a bag and hop in the car and go. With kids in tow you need to get a little more creative at keeping them happy, and yes, a bit more organized.

The Interior of B.C. offers plenty of kid-friendly activities, and when done right, makes for an unforgettable experience that the whole family can get into.
