Free LEGO Mini Build nights happen on the first Tuesday of the month at The LEGO Store. The Mini Build Nights in Calgary are at Chinook Mall LEGO Store. The lines start early, so bring snacks.
Parents wanting their kids to make it to the pros should listen to this advice from Steve Nash. Stop pushing your kids and let them play. Elite athletes often echo the same refrain; private coaches dont get you to the top, free play and creativity does.
I earned my parenting stripes this weekend when I got up early for a soccer game with Zacharie the day after Halloween. To finally meet other parents, and be part of a team is something my parenting resume has been lacking. Achievement unlocked.
When my kids came downtsairs and saw Hot Wheels tracks on the table, they lost it. When I said we would take the tracks camping, their creativity exploded. Just like LEGO, Hot Wheels track building is limited only by a child’s imagination. CLICK THE PHOTO to see what we did for the #hwtrackchallenge
The RBC Believe in Kids Pledge helps kids across Canada find the sport they love and gives them the opportunity to follow their dream. I just wish I knew which sport my kids loved. There are so many options, we can’t do them all, and I feel guilt at having to choose for them at times.

I may have grown up in Vancouver, but I only get back with the kids once or twice a year. We treat it like we’re tourists in our old home town, showing our kids all the fun family things to do. This past weekend we had a great explore inside and outside some of Vancouver’s best places for family fun.
