Welp. Another holiday and no holiday activities post. I miss creating fun lists of all the places to go and visit in the Okanagan to celebrate special holidays! In place of our annual Okanagan Mother’s Day activities guide, I’ve put together this Okanagan Mother’s Day GIFT guide! Treat yourself or send this on to your family to pick out something you’ll love, all while supporting local businesses! Enjoy, and Happy Mother’s Day! xo
I’m excited to share this list of Easter books– perfect for primary school aged children. With some fan favourites like Pete the Cat and Fancy Nancy, plus some sneaky ways to catch the Easter Bunny, it’s sure to get your kids excited for Easter! We love the book an Egg is Quiet– it’s filled with interesting facts about all sorts of eggs. I hope your kids love these books as much as mine do!
In this post I’m sharing 5 simple and free ways to enjoy some time outside with (or without, if you need a break 😉 ) your kids! These are SIMPLE & FREE outdoor activities– I’m sparing you the costly supplies and extravagant planning. You can do these with the things you already have at home. There are a million extravagant, creative ideas for kids activities, but sometimes it’s nice to keep it simple and not buy more things.
Anyone reading this will know that we are faced with a world-wide pandemic at the moment. In our City, Province, and Country, we are in a time of social distancing. What this looks like is our immediate family spending everyday together and seeing no one else. BUT, we are blessed to live in a beautiful place, and enjoying the outdoors never seemed incredible, really.
Rowen is baby number three and it’s no surprise that I am one busy Mama! I love researching the best baby gear, especially things that will help make our life easier, and (a little) less chaotic. I’m excited to be partnered with 4moms Canada— a company that believes in making life easier– to share a review of their incredible baby gear with you! 4moms is all about creating innovative products– think magnetic-high-chair-and-dishes-innovative– I mean, how cool is that?!

Festive baking is one of my favourite things to do! With two little ones, I always turn to recipes that are easy, tasty, and fun. These Christmas tree brownies are super simple, and will have people raving! I brought these to our preschool party last year and was asked for the recipe twice (confession… they aren’t homemade!). I especially love that the decorating is simple and straight forward!
I can’t believe that both of our little girls are in school! Miss A. is off to three-year-old Preschool and Miss V. is off to Kindergarten. It has been a big adjustment for everyone, mostly in terms of how exhausted we all are with the new schedule, but both girls are so excited and happy to be in school– no tears over here! Well, at least from them, that is 😉 Both of our kids are incredibly social and they have enjoyed meeting new friends! Each of the girls and I celebrated their first day of school with a visit to our favourite market for a bag of candy… naturally.
Today is Earth Day! V came home from preschool this week excited to tell us things that we can do to celebrate Earth Day: help pick up garbage in our community and conserve water and power were the two items on her list. We devoted some time to both of these things, and hope you had the chance to get out with your kids and pitch in, too!
