Last week

We were invited to my aunt and uncles house for a family BBQ and croquet tournament.

My Aunt Barb and Uncle Ken.

The house was stunningly beautiful. The grounds were well maintained. There was a lot of room to play around in for the children. There was lots of family that I do not get to see often.

We had games to play. I think some teams cheated....but we will debate that later. The kids had fun running free on the property. They were all so well behaved.

Well, all the kids were well behaved except for Steven.

Just joking. He's a great kid!

We has fun exploring all the nooks and crannies. I cannot upload more pics to blogger, but check out my flickr account to see more pictures of the property.

My little princess looks like she found her castle!

Birthday Boy

If you were to look up Steven in the dictionary, It would look like this:

Leitner, Steven: affectionate, agreeable, dear,delightful, friendly, generous, kind, loving, pleasant, pleasing, treasured, and most of all STINKY!!!

Love you little one. Happy birthday!


I watch you fall because you have a loss of balance.
I watch you hurt yourself because of coordination problems.
I watch your mind never stop.
I watch the black curtain of despair descend over you.
I see your constant sadness, irritability, or tension.
I see your decreased interest in your usual activities.
I see your loss in appetite.
I know you have stiff muscles.
I hear your speech problems.
I know of your short-term memory problems.
I know that you have feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness.
I know and have seen many more issues.

I try to pick you up.
I try to be your balance.
I want to be your rock.
I try to give you interesting and new things to think about.
I try to make life happy.
I try to think of fun activities for you to do.
I try to make good food for you to eat.
I would massage your legs and feet every day if I could.
I would speak for you if you would let me.
I try to help you remember.
You are everything to me.

Review your Product

I am a PR-friendly blogger who would love to host reviews and giveaways. I am dedicated to giving family-friendly product reviews. As parents of four, my hubby and I love to give our solicited opinion on every thing - And trust me, he has one! My children love to try new products, as well. If you think our readers should know about someone who makes products that are neat or unique, or you are an indie designer looking to get the word out about your amazing product, I would love to hear from you!
I'm pretty open to reviewing any product, so just ask! I've got a husband, an infant, a tween, two teens, and myself.
I require the full size sample because I don't just use products once and then review them. I will use the product many times so that I can properly endorse it.
The sample that I need is not returnable due to the fact that I will use it.
You will be responsible for any shipping costs involved.
I will post my review in about three weeks.
I strongly recommend doing a giveaway in conjunction with your review! If there's a problem with your product or I find it's not working, I will contact you and we'll see if we can troubleshoot whatever the problem is. I will not post a negative review.
I will not post about any products or services that we have not personally tested.
I accept all forms of event sponsorships and do not charge any additional fees for representing your company and helping you reach your target market.
We love to share travel stories with our readers and would like to visit new destinations as a family. If you would like my family and I to visit your destination, I would be happy to share my travel experience with a large audience. (Hubby needs wheelchair accessible accommodations)
You can also email me directly at momax3 at hotmail dot com.

My week in review

I started my week going to Ontario Place with Jacob and Abby to see the Sesame Street characters: Abby, Cookie, and Elmo.

Ontario Place is on the water. We saw lots of neat boats. Lots of water. Lots of interesting characters!

Created a feast for dinner after shopping at the Farmer's Market.

Abby had a tea party with some friends.
