My little boy turns into a big boy

Sorry I have been missing for the last week or so. We have been having some problems with our main computer. I will get back on the menu planning Mondays for next week.
This week my lil boy is attending a program called Step into Kindergarten. It's a weekl ong into to kindergarten. He will be going tomorrow for day 3 and he is LOVING IT! I will post pictures of his first day as soon as I get them on a computer. He has been very excited to go to school and this has been a great experience for him so far. When I went to pick Parker up on the first day this other lil boy says "buddy buddy" and ran up to Parker to give him a hug and say bye! it was soo cute to see them interacting after just being around each other for 3 hrs.
Our daycare provider is also the TA helping with the Teacher so it made for a great transition, and the teacher this week is Parker's teacher come the fall. He will be familar with her when he starts.

Abby is also a changed lil girl lately. We have been experiencing the terrible two's even through she wil be 3 at the end of September. I'm hoping this will end sooner than later.
Well I think I will call it a night in a few minutes and head to bed. Til next time~~~

New Camera

I'm really in need of a new point and click camera. Something that the flash is quick on for fast kids! Also not more than $150 Canadian. With a good zoom/close up. I'm looking for all comments and reviews on cameras you own or know of :) I am looking for something I can carry at all times to take pictures of the kids playing or nature pictures.
I am looking at this camera

It's a 12 mp with a 3x optical zoom. It sells for $119
Then there is the next step up and it is 12 mp with a 4x optimal zoom and a f/3.0-5.8, 28-112mm lens.. Sells for $149

Does anyone know anything about these cameras?

Menu Planning Monday July 12/10

I missed last week menu planning but then we ended up with the hottest heat I think I have ever experienced. So it was okay since most of the food was macaroni or BBQ. This week I will actually try to stick with the menu.

I am going to ask for everyone's help though. My mother looks after our kids when we are working. I work 3 times a week in the evening and every second weekend. My mother used to make lots of different foods, usually not by a recipe. Since my father passed away 4.5 years ago she doesn't seem to be able to figure out a lot of things. I'm thinking its apprehension but I don't know. So what I am asking is for all the idea's that are quick, easy and budget friendly. Here are the things she has made without me prepping the meal before hand:
- spaghetti
- mac and tuna
- mac and cheese
- Sheppard's pie
- wraps with meat and cheese
- anything in a can
That's all I can think of at the moment. Any help would be great!

Now for my menu planning Monday!

Monday - Out at a friends cottage
Tuesday - hmm.. will have to get back to you on this
Wednesday - Egg salad Wraps/Sandwiches
Thursday - Hot dogs and pasta salad
Friday - Hamburger Pasta
Saturday - out for supper at the in laws :)
Sunday - Beef Stroganoff - $5 Dinners

What a week~

This has been one HOT week! We have been sitting in the 40C with the humidity for most of the week. I think yesterday was only 38C or so! We did hit the beach most of this week. Either the lil pool in town or the beach.

This year we have decided to purchase an annual to our local Conservation Authority. It was $45 for the summer and we can visit 5 local areas. I think this will be a well spent $45. The children love to play in the sand and water. Two of the areas are about 40-45 mins away but the one beach is not even 20 mins away. There is wildlife trails we can go to, plus hiking trails and another beach.

I ordered some more Forever Living Products on Monday and received them on Wednesday! Very fast shipping. If you love the healing of Aloe Vera you should definitely check out my business blog for more information on these great products. The stabilized aloe gel is wonderful after a day at the beach! and the aloe moisturizer has been great anytime. Visit Forever Healthy Aloe. If you live near me, I will be having a few open houses in the near future.

Yesterday we went to the beach in the morning before the rain hit. We pulled in and there were no other cars! It was soo nice to have the beach and sand for my children and myself. We got a hour swim in before the thunder rolled in and it down poured!

Last night it continued to rain and soccer for Parker was not canceled. They only played about 30 mins but it was a wet night.

Today feels a bit cooler but I'm working all weekend :( This week I will try my hardest to get my menu planning Monday up. I will try and work on it this weekend.

Til next time keep cool~

Ipod Touch Accessories

Do you have an Ipod touch? Are you looking to save money on the accessories? I found a great site that links you to some ebay sellers, that sell accessory kits for ipod. I purchased a kit which included 4 silicone cases, a clear hard case, a pouch, pen, 2 screen protectors, ear phones, ear phone splitter, and wall car chargers. All for less than $11 Canadian! It did take 2 weeks to receive since it came from Hong Kong but I am very satisfied!

Check out All ipod touch store for some great deals!
