This summer the Guthrie kids are testing out the best toys the Summer of 2014 has to offer. With three children under ten, we have a wide variety of likes and interests. Luckily we have found toys that make all of the mini-me’s happy.
All three Guthrie’s wanted either a puppy, guinea pig, kitten or a new baby brother (WHAT?). A compromise needed to be reached in order to bring order back into our home.
We decided to add some aquatic members to our family. Meet the two newest members of our swimming family,
and Bubble Puffy Guthrie.
We named our Hexbug Aquabot Orangie and she is the first waterborne mirco robotic creature with smart fish technology. She is powered with electro-magnietic propoulsion, and propells herself around her bowl to explore her envormonement. Orangie came with her own bowl that the kids clean once a week as part of their chores.
The only issue the kids had with Orangie was that they thought she was lonely. So our next pet needed to be someone to keep Orangie company. We decided on another Hexbug, this time a Aquabot 2.0 Angelfish, named Bubble Puffy Guthrie, which is packed with smart fish technology, added sensors and an inner glow that makes her seem even more alive.
We have taken our Aquabot in the our pool and raced them, most of the time Bubble Puffy wins. Both fish made the trek to Grandma’s house this summer and have provided entertainment for the cats who live here.
Thanks to Hexbug for allowing us to test these hot summer products. These fish have quelled the “Can I have a puppy, kitten, new baby brother”, question at least for a little while.

Swimming, gymnastics, running, and kayaking…you name it and my family and I are doing it! We are a busy family and one of the problems we face is eating healthy food on the go. We already pack fresh fruits & veggies for our commute between events, but we were missing the protein needed to keep our bodies functioning efficiently. The girls and I recently tried Maple Leaf Natural Selections Protinis snacks.
The easy to open and compact Protinis gives a powerful protein punch especially when the girls are training for gymnastics events & swim meets. KT enjoyed the Oven Roasted Chicken with Mango, AndiePandie thought the Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple was the perfect snack during breaks at the club and I enjoyed the Mild Salsa Chicken as my snack of choice.
The new PROTINIS™ snacks are available in eight flavours including Oven Roasted Chicken, Sweet Thai Chili Chicken, Mild Salsa Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken, Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry, Oven Roasted Chicken and Superfruit, Oven Roasted Chicken and Mango, and Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple. They are available at major grocery stores across Canada and retail for approximately $4.99. Each retail pack comes with two PROTINIS™ snacks.
I would love to know what you think of Protinis! I will be giving 2 of my lucky readers, 5 free product coupons to test out these tasty protein packed snacks.
Beckett even decided to try a Protinis on his last field trip. His teacher made a comment to him about how healthy his snack was, he was very proud!

There are only 29 days left until the end of the school year, which means that it is time to update my winter ready wardrobe. My children and I spend most of the summer in or around the water. My children swim each day at the community outdoor pool, then splash around in our own pool and play by the lake side at the cottage on the weekends. Old Navy has all of our stylish summer fashion & swimwear needs taken care of with their 2014 budget friendly collection.
There are several stylish collections that I could wear to a variety of summer events. The “Sophisticated Sport” collection is perfect for our summer pool parties with friends. It has bold colours but is supportive enough to play a game of beach volleyball.
My sister and niece love the bright colour & geometric patters that the “Printed Perfection” collection offers for frequent beach goers.
I love the relaxed yet stylish poolside pairings. Wether I am watching the mini me’s participate in a local swim meet or we are fishing off the dock at the cottage, these items will keep me comfortable and ready to entertain at a moments notice.
My biggest compliment is the affordability of all the collections. At these prices I can give all five Guthrie’s a wardrobe update thanks to Old Navy.
