With the warm weather finally here, it’s time to get out and explore Calgary’s extensive park system. My family always seems happier and more relaxed after spending the day at the park.

Late Spring in Calgary is kind of perfect, isn’t it? Cool, crisp mornings are followed up with sweet, warm afternoons that are just made for spending outdoors. It’s also a great time of year because there’s so much to do that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg; all you need is some creativity, a bottle of sunscreen and a little bit of imagination.

Where did the school year go? I was just walking my daughter, Jessie, into her second grade classroom for her first day of school. Of course, I had my camera and camcorder. I’m always carrying one or the other, or both, to capture memories of her firsts. She probably won’t like it when I’m snapping pictures of her first date, but come to think of it, I probably won’t either. My wife, Mattie, might need to snap that one. For now I’m just looking ahead to summer.

Preparing to send your children to a summer camp can bring up many emotions both for the children and parents. Many children look forward to their upcoming adventure, while some feel nervous with not knowing what to expect. While preparing your children for their summer camp adventure, a fun family activity would be to throw them a mini bon voyage party. This party is a great way to help build their excitement and ease some of the nervousness they may be experiencing.
