Before we started a family in the eighties, my husband and I loved to go out! We usually ended up in one of Calgary's restaurants. When our young son, Marc, arrived 14-years ago, we decided to continue dining out, this time enjoying the experience as a family. Over the years, we picked up several great tips that we think can make eating out with small children the treasured respite from the world it should be.
