Our 1st Few Weeks in Utah

I've done a lot of week-in-review posts in the past few months but today will be a bit different. Today is almost a whole month-in-review, starting with moving day, and an overview of the rest of the month of May.

This will be a long one but I wanted to get it all documented and have a place to look back on it all.

A HUGE Surprise from Hasbro!

If you've been following along with our Smoke Saga, you'll know that our home and belongings recently sustained a lot of smoke & soot damage and our girls lost almost all of their toys.

I've partnered with Hasbro a few times in the past and when they heard what happened, they wanted to send some toys for our girls!

Hasbro Surprised us with a huge package of toys

In a previous post I mentioned that we received a special package from Hasbro. Later I wrote about giving the toys to the girls and said that it was the best moment we've had since Disney World and that I would share more details in a future blog post. So, here are those details!

Top Notch Lobster Fishing Excursion (Prince Edward Island)

I recently re-shared my post about visiting Charlottetown P.E.I. It's a perfect time of year to visit the island. We went right in the middle of last summer and the weather was beautiful! If you're planning a trip to P.E.I. for this year, you will want to know all about our Lobster Tour because it was one of our favourite experiences! (This post was originally shared on August 23rd, 2017)


Without a doubt, if you ask Ken what his favourite experience of our entire Eastern Canada road trip was, he'll tell you about our lobster fishing tour! It's definitely up there in my top moments, too. This was SUCH a memorable, educational, delicious, and fun experience!

Driving from Ontario to Utah!

After a whirlwind one week to pack up our life and prepare for a move from Canada to the United States, we were finally ready, all 4 visas in hand, to start driving to Utah!

We left later than planned and we didn't have a plan for where we would stop each night (beyond the 1st two nights), but we figured it out as we went & had some good adventures along the way!
