Ice Gem Building - Great for the after school crowd

Recently while browsing my timeline this great post came up shared by Calgary's Child:

Looking for something fun to do outside with the kids this winter?
Posted by Calgary's Child Magazine on Tuesday, January 5, 2016

I thought this was something that Grady would love to do but BIGGER. Then it evolved into a conversation with all the after school parents and I thought we could really do something epic. Everyone agreed and a text message went out inviting all the kids who typically stay at our school to play after the bell goes. We would all take the week to freeze containers of coloured ice and then meet after school on a Friday as the kids have 1/2 days.

Bighorn Meadows - Hidden Gem in the Columbia Valley

Radium, Invermere, Fairmont these are all names that we know, but often think of as summer destinations or too far when Banff is in Calgary's backyard. After a weekend away in the Columbia Valley recently I urge to rethink your next staycation and consider going that hour or two longer and staying at Bighorn Meadows.

Imagine a quiet, serene setting where you wake up to epic views of the Kootenay mountains and very likely a herd of bighorn sheep right outside your window! Pack your winter fun gear and cross country ski or snowshoe around Bighorn Meadows golf course and then retreat to your beautiful 1, 2 or 3 bedroom condo for a rest. But don't forget your swimsuit because the Radium Hot Springs are just 5 minutes down the road and even on a Saturday night they aren't that busy and you can relax and watch the snow fall off the laden trees.

Gourmet Boo Bags

Take Your Boo Bags to the Next Level with Cococo

Have you ever Boo'd your neighbors or friends? I am not talking about the rude sound made to opposing sports teams or lying politicians but the fun growing Halloween tradition of making up a fun goody bag and sneaking it on to your neighbor's doorstep, yelling "Boo" and running away, hoping not to be caught.
