Ford Escape


Lately, our family has been thinking of getting a new car. Our 2005 Honda Civic has outgrown itself since we now have two young kids and have to carry a double stroller around. Our dilemma is should we move from a family car or sedan to a mini-van or sedan. Since the Ford Escape is the best selling SUV in Canada, I had to do a review of it to see how it compares to other SUVs. Firstly, with a … [Read more...]

Tuskast Icelandic Horse Farm


When writing my book "Wisdom from Daddies", I had the opportunity to interview Christopher Jones about raising his family on a farm. Christopher and his wife Nathaly own Tuskast Icelandic Horse Farm in Abbotsford. I organized a group of five lucky bloggers to do a Ride & Wine (one hour of horse-riding and one hour of wine tasting). The horse riding was super fun - a little scary at first but tons … [Read more...]

Dominic Chan Photography


With Rianne, we did several photo shoots. However, with Ryan, we did our first family photo shoot this week. It must be "First Child Syndrome"...focusing so much attention on the "Firsts" of your first child while not celebrating enough of the special moments of your second kid. Can any other parents with more than one child relate? This week, we did a photo shoot with both Ryan and Rianne at … [Read more...]

When I first saw Eyoahla Baker's Jump for Joy Photo Project on social media, I knew that I had to support this important and inspirational campaign of hers to create a mural on Pender St in Chinatown as well as a Photo Book of over 100 Jump Shots from around the world! Here is an interview I had with Eyoahla: … [Read more...]

Legends Hotel


What incredible hospitality!! When we arrived in our room at Legends Hotel in Whistler, there were two hand-written notes: one to "The Shetty Family" and another to "Rianne & Ryan." Plus, there was a gift basket and stuffed teddy bear for our kids. The hand-written note to Rianne and Ryan is what really moved us and stood out to was not only an instantaneous "WOW!" but a continuous … [Read more...]
