San Diego Zoo/ Put me in the Story Contest

PMITS-NatGeo-FB-20text-1200x628(1) blog

This past Christmas I discovered an awesome website called “Put me in the Story” that creates personalized books.  The books that I have got for my own children have already become treasured keepsakes.  They are beautiful and enjoyable to read.  Put Me In The Story inspires a love for reading, across all ages and generations, through the experience of shared, personalized stories.

“Put me in the Story” has teamed up with National Geographic to create two beautiful personalized book options, a book of animals and a book of dinosaurs.  My little dinosaur lover already had the non personalized Dinosaur book and it has long since been a favourite in his dinosaur book collection. These two books didn’t disappoint.  Lots of beautiful full colour images, easy to read information and of course the personalized aspect.

They’re saving up for kids kayaks (present spending), want to open a bank account (savings) and will donate some of the profits to Ronald McDonald House (giving).  They had a great trial day on the long weekend and are now eagerly awaiting camping season.

Vaseux Lake Adventure


We all agree that it’s time to get out and do more adventures together. David was away for work for the evening and everyone was needing some air, so we headed out for a walk.  Unfortunately, it started to rain just as we got out of the van. It was thundering by the time we got to the end of the boardwalk. Oh well, we all agreed it made for a memorable walk.  We also decided that we’d start taking more self portraits of whoever was along for the adventure.
