Spring is a renewal of so many things. The earth breathes new life into the air and soils, and we see plant life flourish, the sightings of wildlife and earthy smells. We take so much for granted, including our own bodies and the way in which we treat them. Have you heard the saying, “garbage in, garbage out”? Our bodies, work exactly like this too, and treating them well makes a difference both inside and out. There are things in life that we believe are important for well-being, and one of them is the footwear we decide to put on our families feet. Skechers has been our choice for years, whether it be to lounge, grinding out a workout on the streets, park or even gym floor. They have been there to comfort and support the soles of our feet without loss of style. Read More
Whether you are in the business of creating audio files to be used alone or in a video, or even for pleasure, having the right setup means the world. Yes, your handheld devices and most cameras will do this for you, but have you heard the difference? We are going to be stepping up our video game, and having the proper equipment is the difference in the amount of views you are going to get on your YouTube channel. This isn’t the only way to increase views of course, as so much comes into play, but if you are like us will stop a video if the quality of it is bad in any way. Read More
Spring is finally here and Easter is this upcoming weekend! What better way to celebrate its arrival then to enjoy some pre-made treats, or maybe even create some of your very own? We all know how versatile Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are to create moments, and with their spring edition, now on shelves, you and maybe your little bunnies can get to hoppin’ and create some egg-str special treats for home or school.Read More
If you know our family, you also know we love the great outdoors, and everything in it. Our whole family takes part in all of our outdoor excursions, whether it be a camping trip for days on end, to a simple trail walk. The thing is, even though it may be simple for you, our environments are changing daily. This being the case, as parents, it is our responsibility to teach our children by example what they can do to keep our surroundings the way they should be. Nature Valley has teamed up with a cause our daughter Cadence loves, Earth Rangers (a kids conservation organization) to convey the benefits of time spent in nature. Read More
Our family loves the outdoors whenever we have the chance to enjoy it. The very end of the 2016 season, we had the opportunity while we were in Fundy National park to try out an OTentiK site. The best way to explain one is that they are a cabin style shelter in the shape of a tent, they have a table, bunk bed style sleeping and propane heat. If you have a member of the family that isn’t the biggest camping lover, this is a definite option for them. Maybe you still love the outdoors and just want the comfort and convenience of not having to build or tear down your tent? Either way, any of the national parks we have visited here in the east have had them and are now on our radar for future bookings.Read More
Surprizamals, the surprise plush toy in a ball!
Our whole family loves the Surprizamals, from our 10 year old daughter Cadence to even us. That may sound a little like advertising, and ok it is a little, but let me explain. How many times has your child done something that you would like to reward them for, but you don’t want to go overboard on spending, so they don’t start feeling entitled? I know in our household, that happens a lot! Surprizamals is definitely our current answer to this problem and considering this is Cadence’s first video she started by herself, you can hear the excitement in her voice. (She wanted to do it even though she had a bad cold, if that tells you anything!) Here, Check it out!Read More
As you know, we here at Answer The Tullyphone continue to work with and enjoy our Ninja products. Considering Shark is under the same umbrella, we decided to give test one out and see how it was. If we are to tell you the whole truth, not knowing this brand of floor cleaner well, we actually gave it longer before posting so we could really give it a thorough use. Why? Well, we are coming from using a high-end cordless stick-style vacuum that just wasn’t getting the job done on a full charge and the Shark Rocket Complete is corded. This being the case, we now get constant power for as long as I need it, and the cord really isn’t a bother at all. Our daughter Cadence can use it easily, not that we will see that happen very often of course.Read More
You don’t need to fit in to stand out!
I’m not going to sugarcoat it, raising a daughter is scary in today’s world. I’m an incredibly lucky father though, as our daughter Cadence, whom is currently 10 has been so easy to bring up. I’d like to say she’s daddy’s girl, but truth be told, she is not, and that’s ok. She has many strong woman in her life that played a part, and go back generations, but her mom is her idol. Sherri has done an amazing job as a mother to shape our daughter with all the influence of today’s world.Read More
Important reminders when Spring – ing forward!
We take so many things for granted in our lives, that we sometimes think we are invincible and have memories that are just as equal. The fact is, we are quite the opposite, unless of course you have been fortunate to have been gifted with a photographic memory. Today is March 13th, and yesterday marked the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. The day we welcome a much-needed extra hour of sunlight after a long, dark and dreary winter! For many, this extra hour of sun, along with the warming temperatures, means that more time is spent outdoors, making it sometimes challenging for parents to stay ahead of those not-so-top-of-mind household tasks. It’s harder to get the little ones to bed, especially when they hear what sounds like fun noises still happening outdoors. Read More
If we both cheat, does that make it right?
Whoa, slow down, did that title make you jump to conclusions? We as a society tend to be quick acting, instead of thinking and understanding. I bet you thought the worst when you read the title and it’s one of the reasons that brought you here! The fact is, it still may be bad, as cheating with Netflix on a partner today is reason for many household spats between couples. No really! You need to have it to understand, but check out these numbers.Read More
