Mr. K's Summer Sleeping

Most kids love forts. It's amazing the creativity that comes out when they are given a pile of blankets and free reign over the living room.  Mr. K has always loved to spend time in forts - whether it's under a table or he has made a fort with blankets and cushions.

Last year his dad bought a small tent, and he spent some time "camping out" in the living room for a few nights.  Same thing over March Break - he spent it in our living room.

This summer, however, they took it to another level. The tent was set up near the window, and they used blankets and cushions to turn the whole living room into a fort. He was able to sleep in the tent (on an air mattress) and hang out in the fort part during the day.

We would read stories, play games, and when his cousin came for a sleep over, they watched a movie in it.

He spent the ENTIRE summer with this sleeping arrangement.  I camped out with him a few times, and it wasn't really my thing, but he sure enjoyed it.

Sabra Helps With Those Lunchbox Blues


If you have school aged children, then you are probably quite familiar with how daunting packing lunches daily can be. Coming up with simple, nutritious meals that the kids will like isn't always easy.

 Sabra wants to give you a hand with a few ideas that will help to increase protein and taste! With several hummus flavours to choose from, you are sure to find one that suits your child's taste buds.


For me, I love to spread the original hummus on a wrap, then add in lettuce, cucumber, tomato and chicken or turkey. As a snack, I enjoy dipping fresh veggies in the roasted red pepper hummus!

Sabra hummus starts off with chick peas, tahini, and garlic. Other bold flavours are added in after to make the great tasting dips that are available.

What's your favourite flavour of Sabra hummus? Tell me below and you could win 4 VIP vouchers for Sabra products.
