Berry-picking at Krause Berry Farm in Langley

After the trip to the zoo last weekend, we headed out to the Krause
Berry Farm in Langley the very next day for some berry-picking and
farm animal-petting fun. My sister, Dennis, kids, my mom, and family
all went. Melvin, Patricia, and kids were also there (although I
didn't quite see them in the farm as we were madly trying to fill our
basket full of blueberries). We didn't go into the raspberry patch as
there weren't as much and decided we would rather just buy more of the
blueberries from the store in the farm instead. We also purchased some
strawberries and corn, and the berry-flavored pies all looked so good.
We'll get some of those next time.

There is a fenced petting area where I saw a llama and goats, and you
can purchase feed for $2. There is a horse-carriage and rides were
offered around the farm for $2 each. We didn't go into the rides this
time.

I lined-up at the concession stand to get us some drinks as it was
very hot that day. I ordered lemonade drinks (flavors were blueberry,
strawberry, raspberry), smoothies (flavors were blueberry, strawberry,
raspberry) and ice cream cones (can you guess what flavors they had?)
We lounged in their large patio filled with picnic benches, and patio
umbrellas. The kids played in the playground, and especially got down
and dirty in the sand that encased the entire playground. We had to
leave early because we had to prepare for dinner guests at home but I
would definitely have stayed longer.

  1. Definitely a family friendly place with lots to do from 0 to 100 years old. From berry picking to playing in the sand and playground to lounging around in their casual and relaxing porch with smoothies or pies within reach, Krause berry farm is a 'must-experience' destination.

Our 45-day Summer Vacation

My kids and wife flew out to Niagara Falls immediately when the school bell sounded. That's how excited we were to start out on our summer vacation. I could only take 2 weeks off from work so I stayed behind and planned to fly out end of July. I was a bachelor until then.

Niagara Falls from Jun 29-Jul 14 The adventure starts in Niagara Falls where my in-laws live. My  kids and wife bonded with cousins and extended family for about two weeks. Starting July 6 they went camping at Fifty Point Conservatory Area in Hamilton and boating in Lake Ontario.



My kids rode at top speed on the boat and also got pulled behind the boat on a three-person inflatable dingy.



Their adventure continued south to Washington DC after that, driving for 7 hours. 

Washington DC from July 15 They went to Washington DC for a day and stayed at Hilton Garden Inn. They went to see the Whitehouse, the US capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, Washington monument, and many other landmarks.




From there, they drove 7 hours south to …

How I Fixed My In-Sink Garburator

Our kitchen garburator had been out of order for the past few weeks and I thought I would give it some tender loving care this Christmas Holidays because we'll need it. It's a Mainline Model 1900 and has been very dependable for the past 6 years. This happened a few times before and all I did was run a wooden barbeque stick through the serrated edges of the garburator blade to dislodge whatever gunk was in there and that did the trick. It didn't this time and I was ready to spend some money. 
I was tempted to call our plumber and have them fix this for me (here take my money) but I thought to myself, how hard can this be. I was also tempted to take the whole thing apart to clean whatever was causing the blade to not spin but I'm sure I would have lost a few fingers or two if I did that. What did work was using something everyone already has lying around the kitchen - a butter knife.
Take the butter knife and find the gap in the blade to insert the tip of the knife int…

Top Nutrition Advice from a Registered Dietitian

My wife, kids, and I recently attended a 2-hour food seminar with a registered dietician at our local Fresh St Market and learned a thing or two about healthy eating. Someone once said this about healthy eating and nutrition - that they are "already aware, and just need to implement it". I assume the "it" is the healthy eating part which to me means that until it is implemented, then they are eating less healthy in the meantime. I think this is where the extra learning comes in that comes with attending these quick seminars. If anything, learning that this is a way of life and not a form of diet is worth the cost of going to this very free seminar/tour.

DISCLAIMER: These are my own notes and may not be accurate and not necessarily reflect what the dietitian said. It's all reliant on my note-taking skills that day.

Eating out at restaurants = no.
Prepared foods = yes.
Eating well is not not expensive.
