best day ever
A couple of hockey nights out with my kids this week have formed a new one-on-one tradition celebrating my Calgary kids and their love of Panthers and Sharks.
Pokemon isn’t just for hipster and millennial types yearning for some nostalgia in their tech, playing Pokemon Go with your kids is a great way to spend the summer.
Day Out With Thomas at Heritage Park is back for 2016. Over two weekends in May the big blue engine will be there, now if I can just convince my kids it’s still cool.
Each year fans have a chance to Skate with the Hitmen on the Saddledome ice. A public skate at the Saddledome, it’s awesome – especially for Charlie to be on the C of Red.
Charlie made his trip to Disneyland this year. The annual tradition that happens when you turn 5 was as wonderful as anticipated.
Trevor Guthrie is my son’s favorite singer. It just so happens he’s a friend of mine. This is what it feels like watching your kid meet their favorite artist.
When you wash anything out side, be it bikes, cars, or the deck, a water fight will break out. It’s axiomatic. It has to happen and for us, it did.
Yes, you can play Minecraft outside. Give your kids enough time to bore themselves and they will find a way to get creative and play Minecraft with big boxes.
I like to take videos every now and again of the boys as they play. Simple secret footage of them goofing along and brothers playing nicely. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s perfect.
You don’t understand kids until you have them. The love, joy, stress, frustration. it’s incalcuable. But this parenting tweet gives the best insight into what it’s like.
The final moments of Calvin’s life with Hobbes as imagined by a fan will beautifully break your heart and make you smile. Pass it on.
It was a great day at the Calgary Stampeded for our family. The Chuckwagon tradition continued as Zacharie won a title again, and shared it with his brother.
I am the World’s Worst Fisherman. It’s easy to prove, just sit next to me on a shoreline or watch me try to tie a knot. I can’t do it. I can. however, appreciate time with my kids.
The most important reason to have kids when you’re young is roller coasters. Seriously. As a mid 40s father of 2 young boys, roller coasters kill me. I wish I could ride them all day, instead I’m one and done.
It was a weekend filled with movies, restaurants, donuts, and ice cream. No baths. I’m that kind of dad, I really am.
You’re not supposed to touch The Stanley Cup until you win. That’s the rule for hockey players, and some fans. My son touched the cup, I still haven’t.
