My Date With Mr. J

Mr. J has been saving his money, and when he received a chapters card for his birthday, decided he wanted to buy some LEGO with it.  Between the card and his cash, he had $60.00 to spend.

We headed to our local Chapters location on Sunday morning.  He browsed the books, but quickly decided that his money was better spent on something else, since he can borrow books from the library for free. When we got to the LEGO section, he had a very hard time choosing.  The 2 sets he wanted the most were quite a bit more money than what he had to spend.

The Other Woman - GIVEAWAY

The Other Woman is coming to DVD and Blu-ray, July 29th!

It’s time to get even! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment takes girl power to a whole new level with THE OTHER WOMAN, debuting on Blu-ray & DVD July 29. With Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as the leading ladies and newcomers Kate Upton and Nicki Minaj bringing the jokes left and right, ladies all over better be ready for the perfect movie to end their summer in style! Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Great boyfriends are hard to find, even in the movies. To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, we have made a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

Park Time

One of my kids favourite activities is digging in the sand.  They love to build roads, castles or volcanoes - and getting dirty.

Friday afternoon was beautiful, and the boys and I headed to our local playground.  It's less than 5 minutes to walk there.  For the first time, I let Mr. J head over on his bike while I was still gathering up the toys and the wagon.  This is a new thing for us, giving him some extra "freedom" and expanding the boundaries we have had for the last few years.

When I got to the soccer field, I could see a group of boys (ranging in age from 8-12, with one older one around 15).  They had their bikes and some were riding around the soccer field, while others were playing on the structure.  Mr. J was hanging back, I think he felt intimidated by them (they weren't doing anything to make him feel that way at all, they were just hanging out together.  I was happy to see that ALL of them were wearing helmets while on their bikes! So often I see teens with either no helmet, or it's hanging off their handle bars)

When Mr. K and I arrived, we parked the wagon in the sand and he got to work.  Mr. J decided he wanted to ride his bike on the loop of paths that surround the area.

Rio 2 Available on Blu ray July 15th
Every now and then a movie comes along that the whole family enjoys, and inevitably ends up being watched on more than one occasion (sometimes more than once in a WEEK).  For us, one of those films was Rio. When we found out there was a sequel being made, we were all super excited.

#cerealandmilk Start The Day Off Right! Kellogg's Giveaway

What do Bert & Ernie, Forrest & Jenny and Thelma & Louise have in common? They go together like a bowl of cereal and milk of course! For the 78 per cent of Canadians who eat cereal for breakfast, cereal and milk are practically inseparable. In fact, according to the Kellogg’s Cereal & Milk Survey, 85 per cent of cereal lovers say they can’t have one without the other.
Although it’s clear that Cereal & Milk are best friends in a bowl, the survey revealed that across Canada, star-crossed cereal lovers actually disagree on the ideal cereal to milk ratio. Forty per cent (40%) say that one third of the bowl should be filled with milk. Thirty per cent (30%) maintain that you should add milk only until your cereal begins to float. And a small but mighty six per cent (6%) of cereal experts are adamant that there should be more milk than cereal in the bowl.
Canadian cereal lovers were more definitive about whether they like their cereal crunchy or soggy. With 83 per cent of respondents saying so, crunchy cereal is what Canadians crave. Still, that means nearly one-out-of-five (17%) favour soggy cereal. Yes, you read that correctly: soggy cereal.
