Our visit to SeaWorld Orlando

One place that we were really looking forward to going on our trip to Orlando was SeaWorld. The girls were excited to see dolphins and whales, my husband wanted to pet a stingray again (he’d been to SeaWorld as a kid) and I just wanted to see the manatees.  Don’t ask me why, but they’re my favourite marine animal! We arrived at SeaWorld and started off by heading to the Pets Ahoy® show.  My mother-in-law had been recently and she thought the girls would love it.  She was right! There were Read more […]

Kids Fly Safe CARES airplane safety harness (giveaway)

Two weeks ago, my husband and I flew for the first time with both kids. Our oldest had racked up over a dozen flights by her first birthday but hasn’t been on a plane since we moved to Ontario just before her first birthday, and I’d taken our youngest to Alberta a year ago, but the four of us had never flown as a family until our trip to Florida. This also marked the first time that we had a child who required her own seat on the plane!  I really didn’t want to install our car seat on the plane Read more […]

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Safari, So Good! explores the jungle and African wildlife with monkeys, elephants, rhinos, and lots of the Cat’s Read more […]

Givopoly lets you support local and shop online (giveaway)

I love living in Ottawa!  It’s not my hometown by birth but it’s the first city that I ever made into a home on my own and I was thrilled to move back after living for a few years on the other side of the country.  When we were in university, my then-boyfriend (now husband) and I used to love wandering around the Market and other areas of Ottawa, checking out all of the fantastic, independent stores and restaurants.  Now that we have two little girls, we don’t make it downtown nearly as Read more […]

Warm up your winter with Scentsy (giveaway)

  Before I had kids, I had scented candles all over my house.  Now that I have two little girls literally running laps around each other, having a flame out in the open seems like a recipe for disaster!  I was missing that cozy feeling that a great scent adds to our home and  Scentsy Independent Consultant Shelly was kind enough to introduce me to Scentsy as an alternative.   Scentsy uses “decorative ceramic warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb Read more […]
