As I have mentioned before I do like to promote local businesses in the Fraser Valley. So I want to use today's blog to promote my Aunt and Uncle's hockey program - Pacific Titans Hockey

They have helped many kids from pre-school to adult by training and helping them to develop their hockey skills.

Craig Sherbaty (proud to call him my Uncle) is the Director of Player Development for the Paci ...

Turn your iPhone into a DSLR!

If you are a parent you know once you have kids they seem to get all the cool new stuff. :)

For Christmas my eldest really didn't ask for anything...which of course as parents we were very proud of her for that. (Looks like we did something right! LOL)

CONCACAF women's olympic qualifying tournament here in Vancouver

January 27th, 2012

We are a big FOOTBALL family! Real football!

Our eldest decided when she was 4 years old that she wanted to play soccer and even though we missed out on it that year she started her 1st season the year she turned 6. Ever since, it's been nothing but soccer in our house. Dad played when he was in school but nothing really serious.

Our daughter started off loving Canadian women's soccer and only ...

The Fraser Valley edging Vancouver out of affordability in the housing market

January 22nd, 2012
I came across an article in the Province today that's not very positive for Vancouver residents but I think helps to promote the real estate market for the lower mainland. Vancouver has become less and less affordable for 1st time buyers and young families, as the article put it there's only a few homes to choose from under $300,000.
