Travel Alberta: Ma-Me-O Beach

Ma-Me-O Beach

This summer we have done a few mini road trips around Alberta. There are so many hidden gems in this amazing province we live in. We traveled down to Ma-Me-O Beach, just south of Edmonton. It's about an hour away, which is a good amount of time when you are traveling with a baby and toddler. We met up with Aaron's siblings & their kids, plus his Mom and Dad.

Even though there is some shaded spots on the beach, the shade kept moving. Having this little pop-up tent was awesome. I just picked the top seller under baby tents on Amazon. It does get a little warm inside, so try and position it so you can get a little breeze through the back vent.

The beach is perfect for babies, toddlers and smaller children. It has some shade with trees near the back, sand and rocks which are both always a hit with my girl, and the best part is the shallow water. The water is shallow for what seems like miles out. You don't have to worry about the kids going over their heads. It was also pretty clear water, which was nice.

We brought our trusty DockATot which was awesome to have for Alder to hang out in. He could just spread out and kick, and had a few naps in it. I will be doing a whole blog post on this awesome thing later this month, so keep your eyes peeled.

Emery's adorable swimsuit is from Shop The Skinny. It's on sale right now, so you should go scoop one up! If you haven't been to their shop in Kingsway Mall, you need to go check it out! So many beautiful goodies for the whole family, plus it's just the most gorgeous space!

Summer time

Obviously the best part about coming to the beach is getting Ice Cream, haha! There is a cute ice cream shop ran by the sweetest man right by the sign to the beach. Emery ended up dropping her ice cream cone. I went to pay for another one, and he just gave me a brand new one for free. He said he only did it for the kids though, haha!

This beach is definitely one we will be going back to. I just love watching Emery play on the beach with her cousins, and I can't wait till Alder is old enough to join her. So many fun memories!

Fisher Price

Keeping my toddler entertained and happy can be a challenge sometimes. Especially now that there is a newborn at home. Thankfully Fisher Price has some pretty sweet educational toys that have been keeping her content. Fisher Price is a timeless and classic toy brand. I remember playing with the Classic Music Box Record Player at my Nana's house growing up. 

The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Puppy has been a hit with Emery. She loves puppies (what little kid doesn't), and she loves interacting with it. There are three different levels to it, so Alder can play with it when he gets bigger. It encourages your childs growing vocabulary with songs & phrases about letters, numbers, body parts, shapes & colors. 

The Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Chair is another hit at our house, and has provided endless entertainment for Emery & her friends. This is for 12M+ and includes the Smart Stages technology, learning content changes as your kid grows. 

The seat activates songs & phrases when baby sits and stands. Busy activities include an illustrated flip book and light-up remote control with buttons to press. If you lift up the seat, there are also more fun surprises inside. 

Well, we can't forget about my sweet little man Alder. Fisher Price has all sorts of wonderful products for all ages, including tiny little newborns. The Deluxe Auto Rock 'n Play Soothing Seat has been such a hit with our dude from the moment we got it. 

It's an inclined infant seat that helps soothe and entertain baby. It has two different hands-free rocking  speeds, plays different music and sounds, and you can control it through your smart phone. Alder has had many naps in it, and also loves sitting in it listening to the music and looking around. It's also been great to have around if I need to put him down to help Emery with something, etc.

Also did you know Fisher Price has clothing for your little babes too? They seriously have everything. I can't believe how big Alder is getting!

What are your favourite pieces from Fisher Price?
