This Ice Cream Bar my family and I enjoyed is a sponsored post for #CollectiveBias using ingredients I purchased at Walmart. In my family ice cream is associated with warm sunny days! Although, we enjoy licking our ice cream on a cone we always lean more towards having ice cream with other desserts. Every time I make our favourite pineapple upside down cake, apple pie, fruit salad, or a milk drink with rose syrup known as Falooda, a tub of ice cream disappears in no time at all.

We usually take turns charging our phones while driving, and I found this RAVPower® 24W 4.8A Dual USB Car Charger with iSmart Technology very useful. I was initially skeptical about charging 2 phones at once on a dual USB charger because I was afraid it might blow the fuse on the receptacle by drawing too much power to charge 2 phones at one time. I gave it a try because the specs indicate that there is a multiple safety system such as Temperature, Short-Circuit, Output over-current, and output over voltage.
Keeping our children interested in learning over the summer holidays isn't always easy if we push books in their face, so I try to incorporate learning in different ways. It is important as parents we create opportunities for our children to advance their knowledge and skills, so they can retain what they’ve learned over the school year. This year, I am excited to be part of the Hot Wheels FUNdamentals Learning Project.

With every pair of TOMS that we purchase, TOMS will donate a new pair of shoes to a child in need. To date, TOMS has given over 35 million pairs of new shoes to children in need in 60 countries around the world. We love TOMS shoes because they are perfect for the summer, as it is lightweight and comfortable to wear all day long. These shoes go well for any occasion. My children love the classic suede insole with rubber cushion that provide comfort, and the durable cupsole allows the shoes to be flexible. These shoes have the TOMS elastic V for easy on and off.

Going to Centre Island is always fun for my family and I. It doesn't matter if you go every year or haven't been for years because going to the Island is a wonderful escape from the daily routine, and a fun way to enjoy summer. There are lots to do for the whole family. Our favourite activity is going to Centreville and enjoying the rides. This year we even got to meet pirates.
