Enjoying Valentine's Day in Calgary with your kids

For many Calgary families, Valentine's Day does not mean roses and candy and special nights out alone. Rather, it entails filling out numerous Valentine's cards for school, finding something red for the kids to dress in and making goodies. Rarely is there time left for the parents to enjoy a night out. Instead of trying for a 'couple's night out' include your children into the Valentine's Day festivities.
