Stay at home summer

Because I’m due in the middle of August, we can’t go anywhere far this summer. So we are planning to have fun around edmonton this summer.  There is a ton of stuff to see and do and I’m sure they will have a blast. These are some ideas: k-days/stampede Picnic at a spray park/playground City […]
