Our Big Summer Adventure

This year we decided to do one big trip with the boys instead of multiple trips over the course of the summer. So we banked up our vacation days and headed out bright and early on July 2nd towards the East Coast. Since we…

A camping we will go!

Another camping season is upon us! Time to break out the sleeping bags and bug spray and hit the road to go exploring!  I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean we haven’t started our camping season yet. Our family has already…

Family Favourite Banana Muffins

My family has a love hate relationship with bananas. If I don’t have them everyone is looking for them. If I buy them suddenly no one is interested in eating them and they start going brown on my counter. What to do with overripe…

Sequence

I’m always on the lookout for our next family favourite board game and I think I’ve found it! For Christmas we received a beautifully made wooden board game called Sequence from my parents. It’s great because you can play with up to 12 people…

Grundy Provincial Park Campground Review

Our last big trip for the summer with the boys took us north. Our first stop was a three day stay at Grundy Provincial Park. This was a return stay for my husband and boys but my first trip. Last year they had a boys only weekend…
