Our Summer in Pictures #KinderMom #KinderSmiles

I really can't believe that summer vacation is over. Just one more day and then it's the Labour Day long weekend, and school starts again on Tuesday morning. Where did the time go? Summer has really flown by, probably because we've been so busy and had so many fun adventures. Cottage weekends, backyard games, day trips, amusement parks, and then two weeks in Newfoundland. It's been a bit exhausting now that I think of it. And of course I have photos to document it all. Here are just a very few of our summer adventures!

We had picnics on the beach and attended street festivals with face painting and fun rides. We fed groundhogs on a hike and built a gnome home in our backyard.

We spent a day at Canada's Wonderland. More rides, a little Snoopy, and lots of dinosaurs.

We even went on safari! At African Lion Safari we watched elephants play in the water, and giraffes and zebras graze in a field. Boo had fun in the waterpark, and we fed goats in the petting zoo. Of course we had to take a selfie there.

And we made a quick trip to Niagara Falls one afternoon, just to visit the Butterfly Conservatory. It's one of my favourite spots. We love to watch the butterflies and learn about how they develop from caterpillars, how they feed, and more. This was a totally spur of the moment adventure, which made it even more fun. A little spontaneity is good for the soul.

I put together this photo strip with the #KinderSmiles app on the Kinder Canada Facebook Page. It's cute, right? Like a photo booth. You can share your own summer smiles if you're a fan of the page.

Step 1: Fan KINDER® on Facebook
Step 2: Start your photo-strip
Step 3: Upload your photos
Step 4: Choose a fancy KINDER® frame
Step 5: Choose a filter (you can make yourself look silly)
Step 6: Save & share

Add #kindersmiles to any photo-strip you share and you can see your smile in the app’s gallery view.

Kinder Canada will be at the CNE all this weekend (August 30-September 1) with a special, custom-designed Smile Booth. They'll be in the Kids Zone, so be sure to drop by for a picture if you're there. And don't forget about the Guinness World Record attempt on Saturday morning at the Bandshell Park.

Can Kinder Canada Break a Guinness World Record? We'll Find Out Saturday! #kindersmiles

We are heading into the final days of the CNE, and Kinder Canada is hoping you can join them there on Saturday, August 30, as they attempt to break a Guinness World Record for most people opening candy at the same time. Fun, right? Yummy too. If the CNE is part of your annual Labour Day Weekend tradition (or maybe you want to start a new tradition!) make your plans for Saturday morning and join us at the Bandshell Park at 10:30am.

Saturday, August 30th
10:30 a.m. – arrive at Bandshell Park near the Kid’s World at the CNE 
10:45 a.m. – get a KINDER® egg
11:00 a.m. – Guinness World Records official record attempt

As well, the interactive photo and video KINDER® Smile Booth and play area will be set up in the Kid’s World to capture moments of joy between parents and kids. If you haven’t already experienced the Smile Booth, this is the perfect day to try it out with your kids. The Smile Booth will be on hand through Monday, September 1.

Boo and I are looking forward to taking part in this record-breaking attempt. And looking forward to enjoying the Kinder eggs as well, naturally. If you see me there be sure to say hi!
