Beyond Traditional Therapies For One And All
Being an athlete myself for most of my life, loving science and math for as long as I can remember, and growing up in a family that did whatever it takes no matter what has definitely contributed to my strong advocacy for Breanna’s treatments and how I view her future. Luckily I married a man who is on the same page as me. From our experience with receiving Breanna’s diagnosis, there isn’t someone who takes you on to the next step. It’s like you and your child are held over the edge of a deep body of water and both dropped in at the same time. You’re left to save yourself and your child without extra measures while trying to get to safety. I feel that my past and passion for learning has at least partially helped set us up for success. It also helps when you meet people along the way who are similar in tenacity and it makes research time far more efficient!
It’s no secret, we like the Calgary Zoo! We’ve written about it a few times, each with new information, because the place is just plain awesome. My husband, kiddo and I headed to the zoo last week and spent 5 solid hours traversing one of Calgary’s most popular family destinations. We think there’s a million reasons why you would want to visit the zoo, but here’s my top must sees.
Alberta is BREWING (haha puns) over with craft breweries across the province. You may have heard of some of the bigger ones such as Yellowhead Brewery, Alley Cat or Grisly Paw, but there are hundreds of microbreweries making tasty delicious beer. There are now “…more than 125 existing and pending licenses” for independent craft brewers in Alberta.
“Alberta farmers grow some of the world’s most sought after barley and agricultural products. It only makes sense to grow the brewing industry right here and support good jobs from grain to glass,” said Alberta Finance Minister Joe Ceci
It would take a LONG time to track all these breweries down and taste the hoppy goodness, and thus enter in brewery tours. Brewery tours will take you to about 3-4 breweries and you’ll get the chance to talk to the brewmaster and sample some of the best of Alberta.
Now that most of the snow is gone, you have to admit, the amount of garbage around our fine cities is pretty upsetting. BUT, there is a way to help keep Edmonton and Calgary beautiful and both cities are trying to make it as easy as possible with free litter pick up kits!

The largest North American food festival which celebrates mac and cheese is coming to Edmonton & Calgary.
In this city, indoor play places are essential! You never know when, or for how long, you might be at the mercy of our unpredictable Calgary weather!
You know what I’m talking about…the kids get stir-crazy, the parents aren’t far behind, recess has been cancelled at school for days, and you just need to get out of the house!
Having some options of places to go where everyone in the house, regardless of age, can burn off some steam is going to be your lifesaver at some point in time. That’s why we were so excited to learn about YYC’s newest indoor play centre, Kidz GO!
