Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age at Ontario Science Centre

Discover the science behind Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre running until April 24th, 2016. At the exhibition we can learn how researchers use cutting edge science to excavate and analyze tusks, teeth, skin, hair, and stomach contents to learn about these creatures that once lived side-by-side with humans for thousands of years both in colder northern territories, as well as different ecosystems throughout the world including Ontario. The exhibition uncovers the connecting factors that contributed to their evolution and extinction, such as climate change, human predation, and other factors.

#MonsterJam 2016

monster jam trucks
Monster Jam shows are roaring loud and fun to watch! We love how these full action monster size trucks play on dirt like they are small Hot Wheel toys. This yearly Monster Jam show at Rogers Centre is super fun for everyone in the family. However, this year's show at Rogers Centre wasn't as cool as it was in the previous years. There wasn't as much action, so we were a little disappointed!

Christmas by Lamplight at Black Creek

We had an amazing time at Black Creek Pioneer Village, as we enjoyed the annual Christmas by Lamplight program. This is a fun, memorable, and most importantly a relaxing educational experience that everyone in my family enjoyed. We loved the atmosphere. Going back in time to learn and experience how the pioneers would have enjoyed the festive season is awesome!

Helly Hansen Men's Juniper Sports Winter Jacket

My husband has been wearing his regular fit Helly Hansen Juniper Sports Winter Jacket, and loves it for many reasons. He says it doesn’t feel bulky yet keeps him really warm and cozy. We love the stylish sporty design of the jacket. It has every feature you can think of! Wearing this jacket is comfortable because it is extremely light and airy.

Helly Hansen Women's Jackets for Cooler Weather

As the weather gets cooler, I like to wear layers. Depending on where I go the temperature is different, since some places have heaters turned on high, and the other places are much cooler. Due to this reason, I love wearing this lightweight, compact Helly Hansen Verglas Down Insulator. I love that it is compact because it can be folded and fits easily into a bag, which makes it perfect for winter travels.

Drink in the Box: Healthier, Safer and Better

I like having eco-friendly options that allow my family and I to make healthier, safer, and better choices. Drink in the Box allows us to make this choice! By using Drink in the Box, we can be environmentally conscious and enjoy fresh juice or milk. We can buy large containers of juice and fill this box or make delicious healthier juice at home, instead of buying individual packs of juice that fill landmines and adds extra expense.

Win the Wildlife of the World book

My family and I enjoy learning about wildlife, and we do this as a leisure activity during our eco-tourism to wildlife parks in Canada, and in different countries such as going to see elephants and turtles. We find watching documentaries and learning about wildlife from books such as this Wildlife of the World book is an extraordinary and a humbling experience for us. The unique habitats of the world that God has created are incredible and amazing, as every species has features that are specific to them, which they need for their survival.

The New Jabra Eclipse Review

Gone are the days where we run around like robots with bulky Bluetooth headsets wrapped around our ears. I know that most of us would shy away from using Bluetooth headsets because of their appearance and size. Jabra is known for its innovative sleek designs when it comes to headsets. With the debut of the Jabra Eclipse Wireless headset, Jabra has taken big strides in making a hands free headset look a lot stealthy and stylish with no compromises.

Hopewell Rocks, Moncton, Alma and Fundy National Park

Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy is the reason New Brunswick was a place we always wanted to visit. My family and I are happy we got to be close to the rocks and walk miles on the seabed of the Atlantic Ocean. Experiencing this phenomenal wonder that God has created felt really amazing.

Fundy Trail Parkway and Scenic Caves

The Scenic Caves are must visit, while in the Saint John and St. Martins area. Being able to go into the caves and admiring its depth and the amazing power of how the water has changed the landscape is a beautiful and a humbling experience.

Visiting the City of Saint John, New Brunswick

Going from a stay at a small town like Saint Andrews to the city of Saint John is a different experience, and a wonderful way to explore the Fundy coastline. We loved our stay at Hilton Saint John located by the wharf. We enjoyed the excitement of the city during the day and night.

Explore: Saint Andrews By the Sea

We loved our stay at Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, which is a beautiful small coastal community. It is a wonderful place to relax and feel the slow pace of life that we are loosing in our fast paced city life. We enjoyed the atmosphere, as we strolled along the streets of Saint Andrews and checked out the stores, restaurants, and attractions.

Watch the amazing Macaque Monkeys on Disneynature Monkey Kingdom

Monkeys are amazing creatures, and very much close to humans in many ways. The similarities we share with monkeys are beautifully and artistically presented in the Disneynature Monkey Kingdom. It has taken three years and talents of many experts to bring this movie to us. This movie based in the beautiful island of Sri Lanka by the ancient ruins founded in the jungles of Polonnaruwa, gives us a perspective of the lives of Macaque monkeys from their eyes. Watching this documentary movie has increased our love and respect for these creatures we had the pleasure of seeing in action during our visits to Sri Lanka.

Portable Inflatable Solar Lights from MPOWERD for Travel or Home Decor

We have been using the Luci Aura and Luci Lux lights from MPOWERD Inc. in a variety of occasions. We can enjoy these bright solar powered lights for 6 to 12 hours after charging them in direct sunlight for 8 hours. It is fully waterproof with a IP67 waterproof rating. I like that we can easily inflate these shatterproof lights by mouth. The portable lights weigh 4 oz. and has a 150 square feet lighting area so we can use it in a variety of situations such as boating, camping, barbequing, as night lights, at pool parties or special occasions, entertainment, and more.

Make Informative Decisions with the Help of the Geek Squad at Best Buy

As parents, we all do some degree of "helicopter parenting" and hover over our children either because we fear they might get hurt or we can't let go of the idea that they are our babies. While conversing with Rebecca, a parent representative at the Best Buy #PermissionToHover back to school event, we agreed that the degree of how much each parent "hovers" over their children depends on the individual child, the situation, and the parent.

Papaya Juice & Colourful Entertaining Products from Trudeau

I love the new wave of bright colours and cool shapes of kitchen items for the table from Trudeau. These products with the beautiful timeless appeal and functionality truly celebrates colour. My family and I love using these products everyday, and I am glad they have used organically coloured glass and sustainable wood, which is also good for the environment. I love how we can match our decor with these vibrant hues and bring excitement to our summer entertainment.
