In the heat of the summer, there is nothing better than cooling down with a cold drink, a dip in the pool or a run through the sprinkler on the lawn. With the kids out of school for the summer, it’s very easy to run out of ideas to keep them entertained in the heat and humidity. Swimming in the lake at the cottage or a friends’ backyard pool, are great options and fun for the kids, but sometimes it’s nice to change up the routine and get creative on those long, hot summer days.

Whether it be baby blankets, favourite stuffed animals or overly-worn t-shirts, items that are beloved by children have a history and there is undeniably something extraordinary about them.

Us women have many great options when it comes to what we can wear to work during the summer months. Open toe sandals and light dresses are often acceptable in the work place for women, but men are often limited to what they can wear. So, for Dad Approved this week, I wanted to share some summer clothing items for all of the men out there that can transition from your place of work to a casual summer evening event.

It’s official. The summer holidays have begun. Two months off until school starts again. Like the song goes “it’s the most wonderful time of the year…”. Don’t you just love summer? 

More time off means you can do more activities together as a family. You can travel more, watch more movies, go swimming more, head to theme parks more and spend more time with relatives. But when summer comes do you actually do more physical fitness as a family?

If there is one thing that us Canadians do not take for granted, it’s good weather! When the sun is shining, we mean business: BBQs, patios, lakes, camping, cottages, water sports, splash pads - you name it, a Canadian is doing it! Winters are long and rough out here. We know better than to waste precious vitamin D!

This week Sarah's blog is mine! That's right, I have the reins. To celebrate Father's Day, Sarah asked me to write a few pieces for the week preceding the big day for dads everywhere. Before I begin, I want to take this chance to tell you all how proud I am of my wife on making this blog a huge success.

I am one proud husband!

This week I have been preparing for Father's Day which is coming up next weekend, and I need to get something for Bryan. Men can be difficult to buy for, so I have put together some potential gifts that you could treat the fathers in your life with. Some of these items have come from Bryan's wardrobe and his office, others are some of my finds, and one is a cheeky plug! But the book is well worth the purchase!
