Spring Reads and Cookbook

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.

Soaker Afternoons and Nerf Fights

Hasbro NERF Fortnite lineup and Super Soaker blasters
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.

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).

Learning to Camp graduate program at Sibbald Point

learn to camp program sibbald point provincial park
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.

Waterproofing our fence with Rust-Oleum RESTORE®

applying Rustoleum RESTORE® 12x Clear Coat Transparent Stain & Sealer to fence
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 SealerWe went with the clear finish because we liked the original colour of the fence boards. This sealer can be tinted into six different colours.
