Lakes of Wasaga, a Parkbridge Resort

A change of scenery is really nice, especially in the summer months when the kids are climbing the walls and complaining of boredom. When that change of scenery includes Georgian Bay, it’s absolutely breathtaking. My family and I had never visited Wasaga Beach before, and the kids and I had never seen Georgian Bay before, so this was a real adventure for us! We headed off to a Parkbridge resort called Lakes of Wasaga. Located at Wasaga CountryLife Resort, Lakes of Wasaga offers cottages and chalets that you can rent or buy and are suitable for visitors all year...

Win a Disney Teen Beach Movie DVD (Canada only)

When my daughter found out we could have our own copy of Teen Beach Movie, she was ecstatic! Disney, Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell and a beach theme…you couldn’t go wrong!

They are known for their premium Kabobs, Sausages, and seasoned Chicken Breasts, but they caught my attention when I saw the large Gluten Free label on their sausage package. My son was recently diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that impacts his digestive tract, and our research has shown that a gluten free diet may have a positive impact on his health. Of course we will do anything to help him stay healthy,...

Give the Gift of LittleEcoFootprint

Choosing a baby shower gift or a gift for new parents isn’t necessarily a difficult task. There’s no end of cute baby outfits or receiving blankets in the stores, or you can go really practical and send diapers and lotions…but how exciting are those gifts? Most new Moms are happy to shop for baby outfits themselves, and it’s hard to know how long a baby will be in each diaper size, or if a specific brand will be suitable for him or her. Instead, you can give the kind of gift that keeps on giving and is very unique,...
