Next month our oldest will turn 5. FIVE! That is half way to 10 years old! To celebrate Penny will be hosting her first birthday party with her school friends and she could not be more excited. She has asked for a Moana theme as we are still in full Moana obsession over here. I would say we watch it at least 5 times a week and I may or may not listen to the soundtrack constantly in the car.

What’s more delicious than sitting around a campfire and eating smores?!
Pretty much everything.
Marshmallows and melted chocolate both turn my stomach a little bit, but it is a hallmark of summer and camping. And the kids love it too. Even though we are yet to take our first camping trip this year, our kids have been on a few and they have been to many a campfire.
The month of May is Food Allergy Awareness Month in Canada and the US and May 14 to 20th 2017 is the 20th Anniversary of Food Allergy Awareness Week. FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) and Food Allergy Canada use this month to spread the word on how serious food allergies can be by promoting awareness, acceptance and food safety for the millions of people living with food allergies and anaphylaxis.

If there is one thing I love it’s a fun condiment. I don’t remember when I started making these but they have become a summer favourite for burgers and tacos. Particularly with me and my dad. Making this pretty purple burger topping is simple and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now.
During our visit to Disney World last October, out first with our kids, I insisted we do at least one Character Dining Experience. There are so many to choose from at varying locations, times, price ranges, I decided to pick one in a location I knew well. Fort Wilderness, my childhood Disney stomping grounds, offers a fun outdoor character dining experience with Mickey’s Backyard BBQ.
April 22nd is Earth Day and in celebration the kids and I decided to do a little craft. We settled on a popsicle stick bird feeder, mostly because we had a lot of popsicle sticks making a mess of our craft closet and Minnie was stealing them every chance she got.
Since purchasing and bringing home our first RV, I have been making list after list, taking inventory of our closets and shopping to stock the trailer with everything we would need for a comfortable camping trip. I am lucky enough to have very experienced RVers for parents as well as my own experience camping and RVing in my younger years so I felt pretty comfortable knowing what I needed and what would be too much.
I am only stocking with the interior of the trailer and the patio/activity supplies right now and I will break this post into 5 sections. Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, Patio and Entertainment.
I am still obsessed with all things Beauty and the Beast after seeing the new remake last month. Everything about it was so perfect and so magical, I feel like I need to see it again because there is so much to take in at once. I am sure I missed so much detail. Penny came with me and she was also in love. A couple of scenes made her a bit nervous, when the Beast first appears and again when the wolves attack Belle and the Beast, but it was nothing she couldn’t handle. Following the movie she insisted I call her Plumette after her favourite feathery character.
Our backyard and deck become essentially an outdoor room in the spring and summer months. After winter in a snow belt, we try and spend as much time as we can outside enjoying the sun and fresh air. Last year we purchased a basic gazebo to provide some much needed shade on our deck. It was large enough to fit our patio table and chairs underneath and we ended up using the deck so much more than we would have without it.
This year I am looking to make the are more comfortable and relaxing with some fun textiles like throws, rugs and pillows and also more usable with lighting.
Have you ever considered a vacation to one of Disney’s beach properties? Have you worried that it would be missing some of the Disney magic you know you would find at Disney World or Disneyland?
