Easter Gift Idea: Treehouse Ultimate Collection Cube from @kaboomkids

Easter is upon us, and aside from Christmas, it is my favorite holiday.  Once again we get to invite a magical character into our home, and our kids get to feel that excitement that goes along with waiting for something special to happen. Our Easter fun includes the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, where the Easter Bunny hides little plastic eggs filled with fun treats (some sweet, some not so sweet) around our home, and each of our boys get a … [Read more...]

Little People® Fun Sounds Farm Review & Giveaway

Timeless Toys. That is the category that the Little People® Fun Sounds Farm falls into.  Timeless.  I remember when I was little, playing with my own (likely second hand) Little People toys, then the kids that I babysat as a teen had them too.  And 10 years ago, when my oldest son was born, I would spend hours on the floor playing Little People with him...and the same with his brother, five years later. Little People®  truly are timeless toys, … [Read more...]

Lunch Box Blahs

Ben has been in school now for 3 weeks, minus the two days he's now missed...croup.  And in every single lunch I've sent the same kind of sandwiches.  He likes them, he eats them (most of the time) but it's the same thing over and over.

Kodak Easy Share Sport Camera

Summer isn't over yet.  Even into the fall the forecast is saying it's going to be HOT HOT HOT for most of Canada, late summer/early fall beach trips will be a must!  If you've got a pool in the back yard, it'll be open a few extra weeks!  Probably making up for the cold introduction into summer that we had.  Either way, there are still lots of opportunities to get outdoors and have fun! What could be more fun than taking pictures in places … [Read more...]

Outdoor Adventure – Eureka Tents!

For the last year, my son Ben has been asking to go camping.  And I wanted nothing more then to fufill his wish.  He started asking last summer, and though I felt bad about saying no, I had a new baby, and I wasn't ready to take a 6 month old out into the woods.  It has been years since I have camped myself, and though I love it (I actually lived in a National Park for a short while) I wasn't prepared for the work that camping with a new baby … [Read more...]
