Like Play-Doh, ball pits, and hopscotch, coloring is an activity we tend to associate with children, but it can be an incredibly beneficial activity for adults. Four new activity books from Skyhorse Publishing will allow parents to join their children during playtime. This will allow us to temporarily put aside our worries and reignite our imagination.

Channel your inner champion and brace yourself for this inspiring adventure based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles in McFarland USA on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD June 2nd. Everyone in my family enjoyed watching every part of this moving and inspiring story that displays the power of family, commitment and work ethic that transforms a cross-county team into champions.

We have started to put down seeds and plant vegetables and herbs in our garden. A survey done by Kashi Plant it Forward, shows that less than half of Canadians have ever actually grown fresh fruit or vegetables. Although, we may think farmer’s markets are bridging this gap, the survey results have shown that one third of Canadians will not even visit a farmer’s market or community garden this year. I am glad that Kashi and Evergreen have partnered for a second year in a row on the #PlantItForward initiative encouraging Canadians to “Give. Get. Grow” and celebrate all the little farmers in each of us.
Canada’s beloved Tween Spa has opened a new location in Barrie, and they are ready to serve up the coolest spa birthday parties and most delicious ice cream flavoured day spa packages. Glama Gal’s mission is to bring girls together in friendship and help them grow and nurture healthy self-esteem through their welcoming, warm, and fun Glama Gal environment.

I love reading books, and have always read books on paper and not electronically. I wasn't sure if I will be up for the challenge of replacing reading my print books with an eReader. I am glad I got the opportunity to use and experience the Kobo Glo HD. I am pretty much getting addicted to this device, and enjoy reading novels on it. I love how it shows the percentage on the bottom to show that the end of the chapter is approaching, so I can manage my time. I have been using the Kobo Glo HD while travelling, relaxing, and before bed.

We love watching documentaries and learning wonderful topics such as about animals, and places around the world. We loved learning about the Humpback Whales at the Ontario Science Centre on the giant IMAX screen. By the end of this family friendly 40 minute film we learned lots of information about whales specifically about the Humpback whales.

UNEEK is the latest innovative concept from KEEN. Its design is simple, as it only features two cords and a sole. I love that it is comfortable for long wear, and is very light and airy. The non-stretch, water repellent polyester cords in the sandals perfectly hugs to the natural shape of our feet allowing us to easily flex and move; when we remove the shoes we can see the imprints of the cords for a few seconds :)
In just about a month, it will be school holidays! I think children will benefit a lot if they get opportunities to do a variety of activities and use their time in both relaxing and productive ways such as participating at active summer camps. After our satisfying March Break experience at TAC sports, we are looking forward to experience the Toronto Athletic Camp for the summer.

There is no such thing as the "perfect" family because family is what we make of it. I am sure that none of us would want to trade our families for any other even if they are not perfect all the times. Although, I am sure there are times you question this :) Deep down each of us know that we can rely on our family the most, and that attachment we have with our family is a gift from God that we must cherish.
