Keeping Children Occupied on Road Trips and Hiking at Parks

During the summer months, our minds are in one gear to travel and explore! When travelling with young children we have found being prepared makes life on the road much easier. Even when our children were babies, we always travelled with toys that entertained them such as rattles and plush books. I remember, we had memorized the words on these books as we had read it to them multiple times until one day they were ready to read it back to us.

Summertime equals road trips in our home! Every summer, before a road trip we do a routine clean up and check up to ensure we have all the summer essentials and are ready for fun. From ten-day road trips to three-day overnight trips, there are few things on our checklist we tick off, so everyone in the family can enjoy and have a memorable experience.

Ease of Shopping Online

We love shopping online! There are a few reasons, why my family and I love to shop online and have been doing this more frequently in the recent past. With online shopping, we can conveniently buy what we want, when we want without trying to beat traffic, driving to a store and looking for the items in the shelves, or carrying the items and standing in line. Especially with the busy lifestyle, making purchases online is quick - simply search for the items and buy it - and the products get delivered right to our front door. Also, depending on the items, it is quite easy to return without regretting the purchasing decision.

Taking Some Time Off for "Me Time"

No matter how busy we get, my husband and I give ourselves "me time". During these bits of time we make for ourselves, we not only do activities that are fun for us, but also take the time to catch up on our favourite Netflix shows and movies.

Learning from Eyewitness Books

We love DK Eyewitness books, as they are a wealth of knowledge. This series of books are good educational resources. It comes in handy when doing homework, research projects, improving reading of reluctant readers and English as a Second Language students. Importantly these books satisfy the minds of curious children, as it answers their questions.

The Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless Planer #DIY tool

Dewalt Max Brushless Planer
We do a lot of DIY projects using wood and have a decent collection of tools to get the job done. The latest addition to our tools is the Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer. A planer is a really useful tool to have, as it has lots of varying uses. The DEWALT DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer we are using is the cordless version, and it comes as a bare tool without any batteries. Since, most of our power tools are Dewalt we already have batteries to go with them. It is always best to use 3 Ah batteries or greater, so there is enough power to get the job done.

When we think of Yard Art, we think of sidewalk chalk. However, this year we enjoyed spraying chalk! We found this to be a fun way to decorate and show some creativity in the yard. Both adults and children in our home enjoyed spraying with Rust-Oleum® Yard Art Spray Chalk.
