Hello!

I hope everyone had an amazing FAMILY DAY & Valentine’s Day Long Weekend. We did some really fun things this weekend. We went to the NBA All-Star Kids Event on Saturday and the kids really enjoyed it. Sadly my kid’s were tired and we never go to see Silento perform.

On Sunday morning we went to GLAMA GAL TWEEN SPA for their Family Day Special. It was so adorable. My husband who was a little skeptical about going, had the greatest time! Darren (my husband) and Bentley (my son) made their own cologne and got banana and chocolate facials. Darren was proud to post about it after. Glama Gal Tween Spa has a wonderful Father’s Day Package happening which I would recommend for Dads to go with their sons or daughters.

On Sunday night we had our Entertain Kids: Valentine’s Day Party at Pie Restaurant in Woodbridge. It was really nice to meet all of the new families who came out. I have never seen so much food in my life. I couldn’t move after, but thankfully either could my kids as they went right to bed! The kids were so happy to see ELSA OF YORK REGION stop in for a meet and great! PARTY WITH STEVE did an amazing magic show for the kids. I would like to thank WOW MOMMY for making the beautiful cupcakes and TWO CUPCAKES AND A TART for making the amazing cakes!

On Monday morning we attended the DOWNSVIEW FAMILY FUN FEST. Both my kids had a lot of fun. They went on a few rides, watched an animal show, and saw Doo Doo The Clown.  As you can see, we had a busy weekend, but most importantly my kids were happy! Whether you went out to events or hung out at home, it’s the memories that you are making, what resonates with them.

The ENTERTAIN KIDS: VALENTINE’S PARTY  was a huge success. I want to thank all of the families that came out to PIE Restaurant in Woodbridge.
