There's Something about Sweetie by Sandhya Menon is a fun book to read about being happy about yourself and falling in love; it was like watching a movie. I like how the main character Sweetie stands up for herself without letting other people's perception of her body image take charge of how she felt about herself. Even when her mother was being over protective thinking being "fat" is a bad thing, Sweetie proved that she was healthy, happy, and was a good person. This book will be enjoyed by teens and adults.

Playing with Nerf is super fun especially when we spend our warm summer afternoons in the backyard with the soakers getting each other drenched. We have been having fun with the new Nerf Fortnite lineup. The new Hasbro NERF Fortnite lineup and Super Soaker blasters are inspired by the blasters used in FORTNITE, as it replicates the look and colours of the rocket launcher from the popular video game. Fans can take action from their screens to their backyards and recreate Fortnite action.

Ever since we tried a few Lemongrass House products, we have been loving it because of their unique natural fragrances. Recently, we tried a few other products and love these as well. These handmade fresh products from Thailand do not use any type of artificial colour or preservatives, chemicals or parabens which makes it perfect for every skin type.

We love Game Nights. It is the best way to pass time and connect with family and friends especially during cold evenings of winter or long days in the summer. We were very excited to unbox some new Hasbro games like the Peeping Pup, Monopoly, Jenga, Scrabble, and Tiny Pong (Tiny Pong will be available in the market in June).

Camping is a lot of fun because it breaks our everyday routine. However, if you haven't gone camping before it can be intimidating! We became comfortable with car camping and investing in camping gear only after our session with Ontario Parks Learn to Camp few years ago. Since then we have gone on numerous camping trips at different Ontario Parks to enjoy the beauty of nature and to connect with each other.

We built a new wooden fence in our garden last summer using treated green wood, which has a bright refreshing feel. We gave the new fence boards time to dry out over the summer before applying a clear coat sealer to protect the wood from moisture. We used RESTORE® 12x Clear Coat Transparent Stain and Sealer. We went with the clear finish because we liked the original colour of the fence boards. This sealer can be tinted into six different colours.

Stikbots are easy-to-pose figures with suction cup hands and feet, which can stick to almost any flat surface. With the free Stikbot Studio app, available on iOS and Android, children can snap individual photos and stitch them together to make a film. The app has built-in music and sound effect options.
On our recent post about TAC sports camp we mentioned that they have partnered with LSA (Lifetime Skills Academy) to offer STEM themed programs, which will help our children exercise their creativity and develop a variety of skills.
