Summer Travel and Outdoor Games

6 in 1 game
We love taking games with us when we travel. This keeps everyone in our family engaged while travelling. Games always come in handy on rainy days, or when we look for something relaxing to do. This summer, we took a look at a few outdoor and travel games from Goliath Games and Pressman toys.

Thrilling adventure of the Whirlpool Wet Jet tour

We were extremely thrilled to experience Whirlpool Jet tours at Niagara Falls, Ontario this summer! We first saw how fun it looked during our Niagara Bell Cruise. Glad we waited for our kids to be a little older, so everyone can have a memorable time. It was worth the wait, as we had an awesome thrilling experience.

Shopping for trendy new school supplies is half the excitement when we get ready for a new school year. We have been shopping at Staples for school and office related supplies for years, and it has never disappointed. We have always found what we need there. We start our back to school shopping by early August and look to take advantage of new deals. It is never too early to be prepared to get the kids in the mood for an exciting new school year. This also lets us travel without worrying about getting the school gear ready, so we can keep travelling until the last weekend of summer.

Pottery Painting at Crock a Doodle

Crock a Doodle pottery painting studio
We were excited to drop-in aCrock a Doodle in Niagara Falls for an afternoon of fun. This pottery themed creative space with friendly staff made us feel welcomed. This studio is setup in a way that makes it comfortable for children to sit down and paint. For adults, it gives an opportunity to let go of everything and be a kid again. We loved it!

We recently got to drive and discover the features of the 2018 Mazda CX-9. The CX-9 is positioned as a Mid-range SUV that has style and does the heavy lifting. We recently packed the CX-9 for a road trip and got to experience most of everything it had to offer.

Experiencing the Medieval themed week at STEM camp

stem camp
We love the concept of STEAM education, and I have always encouraged this type of learning to my children through books, hands-on activities we do, and experiences we have. This summer my children were excited to experience a week of STEM camp and they participated in the Medieval themed week. Each week of STEM camp is dedicated to four different themes, so children have a choice of picking their favourite and having different experiences.

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.

Sightseeing in Québec City

We wanted to visit Québec City for a while, and was finally able to do this during our road trip from Ontario to New Brunswick. Québec City is located on the north bank of the Saint Lawrence River and offers unspoiled views of the Laurentian Mountains. It has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. During our visit, we had the pleasure of spending a night at Auberge Saint-Antoine, and checking out different places in Québec City on a bus tour of the city.
