Bringing fun home with Hasbro for creative ways to keep kids learning & occupied #bringhomethefun

How is everyone doing?  How’s homeschooling going?  I’ll be honest, with us it’s been a struggle.  While getting some work done, I also like finding creative ways for my kids to learn and Hasbro has gifted us productive ideas to get innovative in the form of exercise, imagination play and to work on our spelling and reading. “In an…

Embracing rustic charm and beauty at Viamede Resort

  A couple of weeks ago we arrived at Viamede Resort.   A beautiful pet-friendly resort nestled around the beauty of Stoney Lake, 35 minutes from Peterborough and 2 hours away from Toronto.  Upon arriving, you go through a cute little town where you can stock up on your cottage essentials or just drive down Mount Julien Road and let Viamede do the cooking for you…

The summer of ’18 at Fern Resort

Well, let me tell you. Fern Resort is consistent. Fern Resort is the kid’s favourite place to visit and this summer our stay there was just as good if not better than last time.  It was a planned surprise for the kids, when they saw the Fern Resort sign and those beautiful Willow Tree’s, my ears were ringing from the screams and enthusiasm.  &nbsp…
