Disney Pixar Cars 3 on Blu-Ray/DVD & Giveaway!

Cars 3 Is Now on Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital!
At age 2 years old, my son fell in love with Tow Mater from the Disney Pixar Cars movie.  He had a crib blanket with Mater on it, and that's when they first met.  After that, he took great interest in Cars and Cars 2 movies, watching both dozens of times.  Next came a remote controlled Mater car, and fifty or so Disney diecast toy cars, many of them Tow Maters.  6 years later, my son is now 8 years old and still a Cars and Mater fan.  My son literally waited with baited breath for Cars 3 to be released 6 years after Cars 2's release date.  His 6-year patience was rewarded this year.  Cars 3 is now on blu-ray, dvd and digital!

We recommend Cars 3 as a great gift for kids this holiday season.

Hoping to get back in the game, he turns to Cruz Ramirez, an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. With inspiration from the Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns, No. 95 prepares to compete on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage."

The blu-ray release includes an all new mini-movie, featuring demolition derby legend Miss Fritter!

SUMMER CAMPS: SPACES AVAILABLE! TORONTO & GTA ($50 OFF CODE!)

My Kids' First Day of TAC Sports, 2017!
2017 marks my kids' 3rd happy year of TAC Sports summer camp!  Gone are the days of the kids sitting at home during the summer break inactive or bored.  They now wake up excited to go to camp, learn a new sport, make new friends, and see the friendly face of a favourite counsellor.  Based on my family's own personal experiences, we'd highly recommend TAC Sports camps to you.       

PROMO CODE: SNYMED gets you $50 off!
(*summer programmes) 

TAC Sports boasts 9 fantastic summer camps in Toronto, Markham, Thornhill, Woodbridge and Mississauga. The camps are for boys and girls ages 3.5- to 12-years old, but they also offer L.I.T. programmes for ages 13- to 16-years old. Children 3.5- to 5-years old participate in TAC's fun Adventure Camp, which is separate from the older kids.

TAC Sports offers you the choice of either full-day or half-day camps that help build confidence, teach new skills (or grow existing ones), and keep kids active throughout the summer!  Depending on location, here are some of the wonderful programmes that the camp offers:

My Daughter & Son Get Their "Kicks" at Mixed Martial Arts!
I've mentioned it previously, but I'm happy that my kids get to spend the summer outside in the fresh air at TAC Sports camps (they do go inside if it rains).  It's just part of a healthy lifestyle, in my opinion.  During the school year, this is something that is definitely lacking.  My kids were also very happy to be able to pick 2 different sports each week, and work on new skills in this time frame.  As a parent, I've been amazed by how much they have improved in a particular sport week by week...and over the summer the progress is dramatic!

It was at TAC Sports that my middle son really developped a love for soccer, and he has subsequently completed a year of rep soccer. TAC Sports was also to thank for my eldest son's interest in basketball, and we did end up signing him up in house league basketball due to his insistence!

Disney's Cars 3 Races to Theatres June 16th & Contest!

Disney Cars 3 Zooms Into Theatres June 16th!
My 8-year old son fell in love with the Disney Cars movie franchise when he was only 2 years old.  That year Cars 2 released, and he was delighted to get up to speed with both Cars 1 and 2.  6 years later, and our dvd and bluray copies have been watched and rewatched countless times.  And now the much anticipated Cars 3 movie races to theatres June 16th, 2017, and it couldn't come soon enough: we've been talking about Cars 3 for literally years. 

For the past 6 years we've played "cars" together, having races, picnics and family reunions with diecast Tow Mater and Lightning McQueen in "Radiator Springs".  Needless to say, Tow Mater the rusty brown tow truck has been overrepresented, as he has been my son's favourite Cars character.  He owns oodles of Tow Maters, including Tiki Mater, Ice Cream Truck Mater, Taco Truck Mater, Sushi Truck Mater, Waiter Mater, Ambulance Mater and more!  

I just can't wait to sit down and watch Cars 3 with my son at the movie theatre!
Cars 3 Scene: Lightning McQueen VS. Miss Fritter!
Cars 3 Movie Plot:
"Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!"

Despicable Me 3 in Movie Theatres June 30th & CONTEST!

My kids are celebrating that Despicable Me 3 is releasing this summer, right after school lets out!  It comes to movies theatres on June 30th, and we're not going to miss it.  My husband and I also love Dru and the Minions, with actor Steve Carell once again voicing Dru in DM3.  Carell has really made my family laugh out loud in previous Despicable Me installments, and we're winding up for another big laugh in part 3!  The trailer looks good too (below), so we're pumped!

Despicable Me 3 Movie Plot:
Gru (Steve Carell) and his wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) must stop former '80s child star Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) from taking over the world.  But sibling rivalry hits hard when Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru.  And now Dru wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist to steal the diamond that Bratt has stolen.
