An Afternoon At the Great Pumpkin Smash and Two Bucket List Checks

Saturday, October 29, 2022

It was Gerry's birthday today so we did lunch with the "kids" and went ourselves  to the Great Pumpkin Smash. Who says things like this are just for kids- because yes- there were alot of adults without kids too! It was a beautiful day and I also checked off two things from my bucket list:

-pumpkin smashing

**The pumpkins at this event were locally sourced. Many would otherwise be unharvested for market or come from a failed crop, impacted by frost. None of the pumpkins smashed at this event will be painted, so they can be used for livestock feed.

-ax throwing- although I totally bombed at it- LOL 

Couldn't really give this one my all because of a rotator cuff injury last year, and my bad back...wanted to be careful.. but it wasn't easy throwing it high enough and forget about making it stick in there!

Even Jack and Sally were there from Nightmare Before Christmas! I made sure to get my picture taken because our oldest daughter Ria is a big fan!

Game Night! Games To Enjoy During the Holidays With Family Get Togethers

Monday, October 24, 2022

Do you play holiday games with family during your Thanksgiving, Christmas celebrations?  The holidays are so much fun with the family when we can pull out some games for the adults and the kids. The best part is that there are so many great games out there- but also some new ones-

Games like:

Celebrate the hit ’90s TV show in this hilarious head-to-head party game that will challenge what you know about the “show about nothing.”

Score points by answering trivia questions, charades-style acting, and guessing who said or did some of the most hilarious bits ever aired on television! You’ll even get a chance to fish for the marble rye like George and Jerry did!

It’s hundreds of Seinfeld-celebrating activities for outrageous fun!

Life at AFC Richmond isn't always simple, but Ted Lasso knows how to rally his team!

In Ted Lasso Party Game, you join Coach Lasso and Beard to show that you believe in Believe! Work together as a team to solve problems in each timed round, trying to play cards in the correct order and rolling a "football" die in the pitch — that is, the game box. If you ever get stuck, just break out the biscuits! This feel-good party game is all about having fun, the Lasso way!

Spin your way to a matching win in the Dr. Seuss Pattern Party board game. With each spin, you’ll have to match the character, colour, shape, or pattern and collect four matches to win the game. But watch out—if someone lands on the SWAP! space, all players must switch their spinners and let the fun begin again

With over 120 billion YouTube video views and 127 million subscribers, CoComelon is one of the most beloved and recognizable names in early childhood entertainment and education. Preschool game for 2-4 players. JJ has declared a game of hide and seek! He wants all his friends to play. But if the wheels on the bus go round and round, everyone hides again! Can you remember where? It’s Picture Pairing with CoComelon! Adds theme and storytelling to the traditional memory game so it’s more engaging for kids. Includes Scramble cards that mix up all the tiles and bring excitement to every game.

Great games to check out from Funko Games for the adults and the kids !

Bucket List Check: Bull Riding Event- 2022 PBR Canada Cup Series Event

Sunday, October 16, 2022

Brock Radford Wins PBR Canada Cup Series Event in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Surging to No. 3 in the Heated Battle to be Crowned the 2022 PBR Canada Champion!

Since moving to Medicine Hat, Alberta a few months ago, we have been able to take in some great entertainment, and there has been so much to see in do. The 2022 PBR Canada Cup Series Event hit last night and what a great event it was. The Co-op Place was where is was held and man - our first time there- huge place! From the moment we got there, there was an excitement all around. The bulls were all brought in and housed near the arena, and once the event started, the riders were introduced. 

The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) was created in 1992 when a group of 20 ambitious bull riders decided to flee the rodeo scene and bring more attention to professional bull riding. Headquartered in Pueblo, CO, the PBR expanded in 2006 and brought the brand to Canada.

The PBR’s cowboy athletes have to be physically strong, mentally tough and well conditioned to survive the week-in, week-out rigors of the Toughest Sport on Earth! Good physical and mental preparations are critical to success in the sport and also help mitigate the effects of inevitable injuries.

Bulls range from roughly 1,200 pounds to more than 2,000 pounds!

The rider must ride with only one hand. If any part of the rider’s free arm comes in contact with the bull or their body, the rider is disqualified and the clock will stop. If the rider is bucked off or the clock is stopped for a disqualification prior to the 8 second buzzer, the rider receives no score.

The event was a perfect bucket list check off,  and highly recommend to see at least once in your lifetime.

Following a one-week break, the 2022 PBR Canada Sup Series, presented by Wrangler, will next travel to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and SaskTel Centre on Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29. Action for the PBR Saskatoon Classic, presented by Redhead Equipment and CASE IH, will get underway nightly at 7:00 p.m. MT.

This event can be seen on tv on these dates.. click here.

Stay tuned in to and follow the tour on Facebook (PBR Canada), Twitter (@PBRCanada), and Instagram (@PBRCanada) for the latest results, news, stats and more.

Duct Cleaning- It's Worth It!

Saturday, October 15, 2022

A few weeks ago we had a local duct cleaning company come and spend a few hours cleaning our ducts. 

Being new home owners to a place that needed a good cleaning when we moved in, and us with allergies, it was well worth the $300 to have it done. Guy said there was pet hair and lots of dirt and dust in them. It's good to be able to turn on the furnace and not worry about what's blowing in the air from owners past!

Always Something to Do Saturdays

Saturday, October 1, 2022

Never seems like there is a dull moment here in the city, especially Saturdays- or most days for that matter- always can find something happening, and always someone raising money or trying to make money.

Today we stopped at a car dealership's carnival of sorts, but soon found out it was mostly geared towards kids and young families, but we did grab some of Tully's mini donuts ... 14 for $6.. and so tasty!

Also went to a huge indoor fund raising sale to support Police Service Facility Dogs, and got to meet the dogs as well. It was pay what you wish so that was pretty good,  and did find a few treasures. We also had given a few boxes of things for donations. 

Found an "in excellent shape"  queen bed frame with headboard and footboard- through Facebook Marketplace- and only paid $20! Will be for our daughter's mattress for when she comes to visit. Always has kept her mattress on the floor but then the bed feels cold she says. Since furniture is a big expense, it's great when one can get a great deal on it.
