One of the ways that we love to relax as a family is to gas up and hit the roads to explore our beautiful province. Whether it’s to visit a cool playground in another town, finding a quiet beach to play in the sand or visiting that restaurant that makes the best chowder, it’s always a great day.
This weekend we were heading to the Annapolis Valley for the first of many Thanksgiving dinners. We planned ahead and made sure we had plenty of time beforehand to check out Kentville’s Pumpkin People Festival. Over 350 pumpkin folk are showcased in over a dozen displays throughout the town and will remain until October 27th, so there’s still plenty of time to go check them out.
Of course, not all days are fit for rolling down hills and road trips so that’s when having positive, engaging and creative toys at home fits in. Thomas & Friends deliver messages about important values through imaginative, relatable storytelling and characters. Chelsea is a big fan of ‘funny James’, while I tend to find myself always cheering for mild-mannered Percy.
Three new Thomas & Friends products have just been released by Fisher-Price, here’s the scoop:
