    See the Kite Festival at the Kortright Centre for Conservation.  Lots of demonstrations and great family activities!

Explore the city, meet the neighbours hear the stories and share your thoughts.  No need to pre-register…just show up and take the walk!  All walks are free and open to the public.  See here for schedule and locations and celebrate our city!

    Go to the BabyTime Show for everything baby!  April 30th – May 2nd at the International Centre.   I am not a huge fan of the show because they no longer have a lot of stuff to keep the kids busy and the entrance fee is quite high considering that you are coming to shop…  However, if you are expecting a baby, this is a great place for you to see strollers and such.  Click here for a coupon for the show.

    Sunday is Yummy Mummy Day at the Promenade Mall (1pm-3pm).  Featuring Kids crafts, makeovers and talks by Erica Ehm.  See here for more information.

  18. Cruise with KIDS?

    One of our best vacations ever was a cruise vacation…but that was before we had kids.  I sometimes wonder if and when it would be appropriate to take the kids on a cruise vacation.   The travel company who we booked our cruise with was incredible and I often recommend them to friends.  VacationsToGo has great prices and the service is immaculate.  They have compiled information on all of the programs and services available for kids (ages 2-17) by each cruise line.  What a great resource!

    Carnival
    Celebrity
    Costa
    Disney
    Holland America
    MSC Cruises

  22. IKEA Hacks

    Mamapicks is doing some renovations because a new baby simply isn’t enough.  I ran into this great renovation blog and great bookcase.  If you are on a budget, you can create this look just as they did…using three Billy bookcases from IKEA ($115.99) and adding crown molding and trim.  Probably not as easy as it sounds, but definitely leaves wood for thought.
