Six Things You’ve Got to do at the Edmonton Valley Zoo

“Is the ice cream truck open because then I’ll go?” Big dude declares from his nest of blankets on the couch. I resist the urge to tell him that I was telling him that we were going to the Edmonton Valley Zoo, not asking him – especially since I am just excited that the ice […]

Day Trip: Exploring the Alberta Railway Museum

“Mom – we’re going to the train place.” Big dude shouts from the couch, where despite the soaring temperature he is bundled under blankets. I look at my husband – I have no idea what big dude is talking about – does he? My husband spins the computer around so I can see the webpage […]
