The Amazing 6 Boating Activities for the Entire Family to Enjoy

>> May 24, 2015



Family activities are the best way to get your family together and create some amazing memories. And even though we are all so busy and rarely have the time to even organize a quick get together with friends, when family outings are in question, things need to be prioritized.

Holidays, vacations, picnics, with or without occasion celebrations… all these are a wonderful way for the family to get together, relax and reconnect.
However, with so many activities out there, a person can get distracted not knowing where to start. The best way to organize your family activity is to see what it is that all the members have in common. That way no one will feel left out and you are guaranteed to give them a good time!

In this blog, we are going to address one activity in particular which is fun, interesting, exciting and definitely memorable!

Family boating, for instance, is my family’s favorite outdoor activity and we always try to get our schedules around and make the timing work for us all.

I’ll lay out a few reasons why boating should be your favorite outdoor activity too!

It’s exciting!

Unlike any outdoor activity taking place on the land, being on a boat brings about a certain element of excitement, mystery and thrill. When you are on a boat it’s inevitable to have fun – as you are strolling around the lake or river you’ll see the amazing water world, fish jumping in and out of water, river birds and above all – feel the peace of nature with the little waves splashing against sides of your boat.

It brings you calm

Boating is one of those activities that brings about the sense of calm and relaxation. Chatting with your family members or friends you brought along, snacking on your favorite foods and letting your senses soak in the wonders of the nature around is a true blessing and an experience that will bring peace and harmony in your life. Sit back and enjoy the peace that you can experience while floating on the water.

And while there are people that will call fishing boring and dull, truth is this sport (if we may call it that) takes a lot of wit, calm, patience and good planning.

While the older members of the family will be thrilled to have caught a fish they’ll later make a feast out of, the young ones will probably light up each time they catch a big one!
When you all get together for barbequing the fish by the river, you have yet another family activity to enjoy!

Swimming is the best thing

Being on a boat makes it easy to dock at the sand bar or out in the middle of the lake/river if you are in for a quick dip. Both you and your family members will have so much fun jumping off the side of the boat, or just swimming to freshen up a bit and keep your physique toned. The kids seem to enjoy this more than anything else you can do on the boat, so there are no wrongs here.

Water Skiing and kneeboarding

Get out your skis and hit the water! This is an amazing activity for the whole family. If none of you is experienced in this sport, you can always talk to the professionals and ask for a little bit of help. Once all the interested members of your family learn how to water ski, the fun can begin! Plus, once you invest in water skiing lessons, it’s done – you’ve learned it forever!

This goes for kneeboarding too. Kids in particular love this sport as it is extremely fun, adventurous and exhilarating!

Boats can be rented

If you don’t own a boat and you feel strongly about going on a boat experience, you don’t actually have a problem. These days, you can rent a boat just as easily as you would rent a bike! You may even get some help from the people working there, take several lessons on how to manage a boat. If you are a true boat enthusiast, and you feel like little boating outings are going to be something your family will enjoy in the long run, then consider building a boat! Why not!

Brilliantly Easy and Effective Spring Cleaning Tips

>> May 22, 2015



Spring is right around the corner; the weather is getting warmer, the birds are chirping and flowers are starting to bloom. Unfortunately, after a long winter, it's common for your home to feel like it's stuck in a rut. Winter can be tough on a home's interior, and that's why people love to give their home a thorough cleaning when spring rolls around. Spring cleaning gives you the opportunity to freshen up your home, and it gives you the chance to clean up before the lazy days of summer.

Spring cleaning is a great idea, but it has the potential to become a costly activity that sucks up all of your free time. Use the following tips to get your cleaning done without wasting time or blowing your budget:

Clear Out the Clutter


When the weather is cold, it's easy for your home to get cluttered; you don't want to go outside, so you leave unneeded items everywhere. Now that the weather is getting warmer, go through your stuff; find items you don't need, and throw them out or sell them on Ebay or Craigslist. This is a great way to generate some extra income, and it makes your home feel spacious and clean. When you clean the clutter, you'll feel a weight lifted from your chest. Trust me; clearing out the clutter makes your home so much easier to clean.

Get Your Carpets and Upholstery Cleaned


If you're serious about cleaning, you need to get your carpets and furniture cleaned. Winter is hard on your carpets and furniture; snow and dirt get tracked into your home during the winter, and it mostly ends up getting absorbed into your carpets and upholstery. You can't have a clean home with stained and dingy carpets, so it's important to get a deep cleaning after the winter.

It's not practical to clean your carpets and furniture yourself, and you'll see the best results when you call a professional cleaner. Modern-day cleaners use non-toxic chemicals and solutions, and their specially designed green products give your carpets and upholstery a deep cleaning. They don't charge much, they're quick and they always do an excellent job.

If you've ever tried cleaning a carpet yourself, you know that it's not worth it; doing it yourself is hard, and you never get the same results that you get with a professional.

Don't Forget the Bathroom


The bathroom is another area that needs to be cleaned when you want your home to look nice and tidy. Sure, you can clean other areas of your home, but a dirty bathroom just makes your house look bad; it doesn't matter how clean everything else is.

First, I like to clean my shower with a combination of: ¾ cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of bleach, an old rag and a scrub brush. Warm winter showers tend to make your tiles look dark and dingy, but when you mix your own shower cleaning agent, you can have your shower looking like new in about 15 minutes, and it only costs a couple of bucks.

Mix the baking soda and bleach; when it forms a gooey paste, apply it to your shower walls. Wait a couple of minutes, and then scrub the paste into your showers grout. Wait for a couple more minutes, and then use a damp rag to clean it off of your walls. Your shower will glisten like new.

While you're at it, you can remove stubborn streaks on your shower door with used dryer sheets. Trust me. It works. Just moisten your old sheets, and wipe away at your door. You'll notice that streaks disappear with almost no effort on your part.

Spring cleaning is good for the mind, body and soul. Fortunately, you can do it quickly, and you don't have to spend a fortune on it. I like to call a professional in for deep carpet and upholstery cleaning, but that's only because they do a better job than me at an extremely low price; it's worth it. Other than that, you should be able to get your cleaning done quickly and efficiently, and once you do, you'll wipe away your winter blues.
