5 Great Benefits To Camping With Your Kids!


It's no secret that we love to go camping and go every Summer. Yes, it may not always be in the woods (we really enjoy provincial campgrounds), but it's a family tradition we value and plan to continue for years to come.

I Want To Hear From YOU!



When I first started this blog, it was a way to keep a record of our family adventures for the sake of sharing with friends and family. Over the last couple of years it's evolved into a way of sharing things with a wider audience, which is very exciting, but also prompts me to re-evaluate my content every so often to figure out what works and doesn't work.

Why Getting Our 3 Year Old An iPad Was A Mistake



Last Christmas we tried to come up with gift ideas for our son who had everything. Like, literally everything a toddler could ever want. He already had a ton of toys, a full wardrobe, a beautiful bed, a custom made solid wood train/play table. What else was there to get?

One thing he did not have was a tablet. I'll admit, we're an Apple fan family, and I had been itching to add an iPad to our line up of devices. Moms on mom groups told me that iPads were great educational tools. 

So, I called our service provider and discovered that we could get a $0 ipad for $10/month, and I went for it. I ordered a child proof iPad case from amazon, and some cute headphones for him, and we were all set. I would be lying if I didn't admit that I felt like some kind of super mom for being able to provide this "amazing, luxurious" gift to my toddler.

On Christmas morning, he opened the iPad, set the box on the floor and moved on to a more exciting toy.

5 Things I Learned By Attending BlogJam 2018





At the end of October, I attended my first blogging conference, BlogJam Atlantic. I wanted to talk a bit about my experience, and tell you what my plans are for the future!

On the morning of BlogJam, I woke up at 4am to get ready, and left Fredericton around 6:30am. The conference was in Moncton at the Delta Beausejour Hotel. I was nervous to be attending the conference alone, but excited to learn, mingle and network at the best of my ability.

Once I got there, I quickly began to recognize faces and names of bloggers that I've been following for years. A lot of them knew each other already, so it was a bit intimidating, but everyone was very welcoming and friendly.

I won't go into detail about the specific speeches and presentations that I watched, because I could honestly go on forever about what I learned on the blogging side of things.

Here are 5 things I learned by attending BlogJam 2018:

Adventure In The Forest! Our Day At The Hanwell Recreational Park





This past Sunday, we decided to take a drive out to Hanwell to check out the new playground at the Hanwell Recreational Park. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! If you're going to be in the Fredericton area, it's worth the short drive out. Our son loved it, and we loved the atmosphere and beautiful woodland surroundings.

Here are some photos from our day:

Glamping With Kids- 5 Hacks To Make Your Tent Camping Experience More Comfortable And Luxurious



You've probably seen the term "glamping" bouncing around social media in recent years. If you consider yourself a hard core, deep in the woods, make your own shelter kind of camper, the glamping trend most likely has you rolling your eyes into outer space, because that's not real camping, right?
