Always thinking of the next fun thing to do at Fern Resort #OntariosAllinclusive

fern resort
While at Fern Resort, the only thing we thought of was vacationing! The mood is all set from the time you walk into the resort till the time you check-out. This resort is all inclusive, so all the meals and activities are taken care of. This made my husband and I feel at ease since we didn't need to worry about the meals, and were able to participate in the activities we wanted to, and children were able to do activities they wanted to.

Visiting Prince Edward Island Once Again

prince edward island charlottetown
The classic novel of Anne of Green Gables I read at school as a child, and the movies we have watched was an inspiration for our trip to Prince Edward Island in 2010. In our previous trip we flew to P.E.I, so this time we planned to stop in Summerside, Cavendish, and Charlottetown during our road trip from Ontario to Quebec and New Brunswick to revisit the places our children once visited when they were little. Prince Edward Island situated in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is a place we always think of returning to because of its beautiful sandy beaches, and something about the island that always calls you back.

Keeping Children Occupied on Road Trips and Hiking at Parks

amazon
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.

Pure Leaf Tea

pure leaf tea
During our visits to Sri Lanka, a country famous for its exceptional tea, we have had the pleasure to visit tea plantations. The landscapes in these regions are memorable and beautiful. I have seen the plantation workers hard at work during the heat of the day hand-picking every leaf that we enjoy. Most of the workers I have seen doing this tedious work are women. As tea-lovers, we have been indulging the delicious, different flavours of Pure Leaf tea.

We were able to truly go "zoom zoom" on this new 2017 Mazda CX-3. We enjoyed its smooth performance as we test drove it. It is a compact vehicle with all the features we need and more. It was perfect for our family of four for everyday use. There was enough cargo space for grocery shopping and small trips.

We had a lovely time during our stay in a chalet at Lakes of Wasaga Parkbridge Resort. At the resort, we have the option of either staying in a cottage or chalet. We can either own these four season homes or rent and enjoy during anytime of the year. The scenic view of the man-made lakes surrounding each lot of chalets and cottages is beautiful and the perfect setting to sit and relax. Our days in the chalet were relaxing and fun, as we did lots of outdoor activities.
