It’s May long and the nice weather is upon us. Normally I don’t do a weekend roundup but there are so many things happening around Edmonton to do with the kids.

    I wish I read this on Friday. Weekend was a little boring but had a hot dog at Fat Franks. Also went to Stathcona market. I like the idea of going to Fort Sask. as a day trip
