September recap – what you might have missed

How is September already over?! I am certain we can only be halfway through and yet… here we are!  A lot did happen here in September, here’s what we talked about, in case you missed any of it!

Attractions for kids

We went all over the city, from the cottage right in our backyard at Mud Lake and exploring new corners of the city while trying out geocaching, to the Lumiere Festival, karters corners, and going on family bike rides.

We also found out why Chapters is a great place to take your kids, heard about the ruins at MacKenzie King Estate, visited the ByWard Market, an exhibition at the National Gallery and heard about putting your girls in hockey.

Books

We visited the Sunnyside library and also heard about getting your kids their own library cards.

Cooking

One mom told us all about how to make an amazing Thomas birthday cake and a trip to the apple orchard has people making apple crisp and apple sauce.

Fairs

Fall fair season is upon us.  We visited the Richmond and Spencerville Fairs.

Meetups

We are heading out to MacKenzie King Estate this Saturday morning – will you join us?

Out of town activities

We visited the Granby zoo and it sounds amazing!

Parenting Tips

This month we talked about the importance of being aware of kids with allergies and how to make it easier for them when you host an event.  We also talked about getting fussy babies to sleep, cutting your kids’ hair, and using cloth diapers.

Products

Figuring out what kind of lunchbox to buy isn’t an easy decision – here’s some help.

Social Media Mondays

We launched a new series called Social Media Mondays – here is the intro post.

Sponsors and Giveaways

This month we welcomed Inspired Photography to our list of sponsors and had giveaways from Spoiled Sugar and Inspired Photography (giveaway open until the end of the day Oct 1)

Services

There are so many great services in the city that cater to kids.  Take your kids to Two Monkeys Coffee and Tea House, glamping, to yoga, babynastics or throw them the perfect princess party!
