a peek inside the fishbowl

We’re slowly getting back to regularly scheduled programming around these parts. I have a lot I want to share about our camping trip but in the meantime I wanted to (a) fill you in on a family photo shoot we had with Fishbowl patron Sara McConnell and (b) spill the deets on a special photography giveaway.

So this is what we did yesterday afternoon: The girls each have one of these Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Cameras. A couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of film on a whim at Black’s (the store is going under and I nabbed it at a discounted price). A few of the packages […]

I will be writing more about our lovely weekend away soon. In the meantime I will say this: if you’re looking for a place to relax and disconnect and isn’t far from Ottawa, THIS IS IT. – One of my favourite features in Capital Parent Newspaper is my Editor’s Faves column. Basically, I pick three things I […]

I think that one of our jobs as parents is to help our kids achieve the things that they want to achieve. This is why we do things like drive them to their various lessons/activities/sports camps, sit in the rain/bleachers/boiling sun while they pursue said activity… help them with their homework, and generally just Give […]

A great little giveaway to see Farmers, Warriors, Builders: The Hidden Life of Ants… a photography exhibit by Mark W. Moffet at the Canadian Museum of Nature.

This is a continuation of yesterday’s post about a photo hunt our kids did over the weekend. It was such a neat little activity! It kept them busy and engaged for awhile, and the results are kinda sweet. The photos below were taken by my youngest. I just love them. Planning a photo hunt in […]

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (15) and Sarah (13). I am the editor of the Kitchissippi Times and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
