We spent a few days towards the end of our summer vacation exploring the heritage, trails, theatre, and outdoor activities in Stratford and Perth County. While enjoying the activities in this area, we stayed at Forest Motel and Woodland Retreat located in Stratford. It is a family friendly woodland retreat close to all the amenities, a few minutes from the Stratford Festival Theatre.

With the end of summer here, we're all getting ready to adjust to new habits and back-to-school routines. Making the transition from relaxed days, later bedtimes, sleeping in and weekend fun to schedules, routines and healthy habits can be tricky for busy families. With so much on the go, it's no wonder that one of the biggest challenges for parents is getting good quality meals on the table. Come September, tips and tricks that help you get organized are essential, so you can deal with getting kids ready for busy weekdays packed with school, activities, sports, and homework.

Long Point Eco Adventures located a couple of hours from Toronto is a 37 acre site opened in 2003 by owners Mike McArthur and Dave Pond. It is a fabulous place for the whole family to enjoy a variety of unique eco-adventures. We loved the experiences of zip-lining, doing the apiary tour, stargazing, axe throwing, and hiking during our stay, read the details of each of these adventures and how suitable they are for families on this post.

We had a memorable time testing our physical and mental boundaries as we did adventurous activities in Norfolk county located in Ontario's South Coast. Our stay at Long Point Eco Adventures was full of energy and excitement as we anticipated and participated in activities we haven't done before.

We love exploring new sports. Our children have been part of a variety of sports teams at school, after school, and during summer sports camp. With each of the different sports we want to play, there is different gear and equipment that goes with it. Sport Chek has been the most convenient place for us to shop for all our sports equipment.

We recently tested the new Thermacell range of non-spray bug repellents, which are now available in Canada. Thermacell products have come in handy for us this summer as we were able to repel pesky mosquitos within a 15x15 foot zone. We like this repellent because there is no messy lotions, odours, noise, DEET, or open flames involved and the products use the same ingredients that make chrysanthemum flowers deter insects. All Thermacell products have been approved by the EPA for safety and effectiveness.

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.
