Summer is literally weeks away for us and I couldn’t be more excited! No more school lunches to be made no more starving kids coming off the bus and raiding my snack basket – our days will be filled with park trips, splash pad playdates lots of fun and that means I’ll still have hungry kids on my hand. I always try to be prepared whenever I go anywhere with my kids with lots of snack options. There is nothing worse than a hangry child or really adult too! My first choice for my kids is always something fresh either fruit or veggies but typically they are still hungry after that and if we are gone on the road for the day (like we will this summer) I need to come prepared with lots of snacks. When choosing snacks I look for something that my kids will enjoy, it must taste good (duh) and I want something that isn’t loaded with sugar and bad for them. Recently I was sent a box of goodies from Kind Snacks and we couldn’t wait to try them out. Since I have a nut allergy we avoid nuts in our house so I was very thankful that all the bars we were sent were nut free #winwin and that means they are even safe to send to school with the kids if needed. (If you don’t have a nut allergy and you enjoy nuts Kind Snacks has tons of bar options for you)

In our box we received the Dark Chocolate Chunk, Oats and Honey with Toasted Coconut (my favourite) and the Maple Pumkin Seeds with Sea Salt. All of them were delicious and kid and parent approved but they even have more options that I would still love to try like the popped salted carmel! The kids really like the Pressed Bars which a healthy spin on a fruit snack. Each bar boats 2 servings of fruit and clean ingredients which I am sure every mom loves to feed her child. Pressed bars contain 5 ingredients or less and NO ADDED SUGAR!! We enjoyed the Pineapple Banana Kale Spinach and the Strawberry Apple Cherry Chia . The bars are also packaged in fun bright colours which naturally the kids gravitate to.

Kind Snacks are just delicious, healthy snack options but they also have a mission to make the world a littler kinder with one snack and one act at a time and I just love this whole idea. Feeding my kids snacks that are good for their physical body and their emotional soul is a total win in my books. Kind Snacks want to provide healthy snacks and inspire acts of kindness big and small as a part of the KIND Movement and I want to partner with them. We can all agree this world needs more love and kindness so I want to encourage you my beautiful readers to jump on board and join in. As a way to get started I want to give away one a one month supply of Kind Bars to one of you. All you have to do to enter is comment on this post or on my Instagram post and tell me one way you are going to spread kindness this week. (If you comment on this blog post and my Instagram post you will have two entries.)

  • Change in weather today which I’m ok with gives me an excuse to pull my cozy sweater out although I’m not in any way ready for fall yet but I do think fall is my favorite season to dress for... anyone else?
  • Some days my whole “to do” list (cause yes I function off lists) gets thrown out the window the toys make there way everywhere throughout the house (and I cringe) and I have a million things I should be doing but but in all honesty the thing I need to do is just sit and be present with my babies and since this one is growing by the years it seems daily I’ll soak up my snuggles and moments like this with her cause really the “to do” list will always be there! #graylynnhope #mamasgirl #motherhood
  • My kids love to be outside! Anyone else’s kids like that? After a crazy last 6 days with having 2 extra little people and than end of the school and Canada Day celebrations we all need a little “space” today if you know what I mean so despite the rain we will go for our daily walk/bike ride and enjoy the warmth outside and I’ll tell myself this can count as their baths for tonight 🤣 (I’m totally kidding they love the water so even if I tried they wouldn’t miss bath time)
  • She loves all things girly would wear a dress daily if she could, lover of all lipsticks especially pink and purple, loves Disney princesses especially Belle and Rapunzel  and she loves diggers!  Couldn’t seem more opposite but she loves having these diggers in our backyard to watch them work she is hoping if she keeps waving and batting her long eyelashes at the drivers she’ll get a ride on one! #lyricbethanyspinks
  • After 10 days of celebrating your birthday festivities are officially over although we celebrate you every day! To hear you say  after your party with your friends and family that it was the best day ever melted my heart! June 13, 2012 will forever be the day that my life changed and my dream came true. You my girl are my miracle and I knew the day you were born that you were special but I of course was bias but this year I have had that validated by others. Graylynn there is no one like you - you are amazing, you are smart, kind, loving, you are a good friend an amazing big sister you are talented and athletic and most of all you are loved so much not just by daddy and me but even more by Jesus and I pray you always know that. To see my itty bitty baby the day she was born swipe and to see just how great of a big sister she is listen to her serenade her sister the day she was born (this video gets me every time) #graylynnhope
  • If you look real close under my arm you’ll see my “ankle weight” - sweet boy loves to be with me all the time and though the love between the two of us is mutual sometimes I feel like I’m being touched by someone all day every day- any mamas out there feel me?
