Hightlights from Taste of PE

So I took my “foodie” (Rob) and my “no foodies please” (Aidan) to Taste of PE this weekend. I really loved the relaxed vibe and although more stalls, bigger portions/smaller prices would not have hurt I think it was a pretty big success… Food and drink lovers just chilling on the Boardwalk festival lawn hanging out and trying new things ๐Ÿ™‚
We didn’t plan on taking Aidan with us but because the cousin he was going to stay with came down with German measles we took advantage of the “kids enter free” policy and ended up having a blast.

Rob loves craft beer, apparently this one has something to do with bubblegum and bananas
Aidan’s uncle yian was there too (Ryan)
I’m told this pasta with venison meatballs was amazing
The chickpea chip and dip was so amazingly delicious
 – But really only 5 chips?!?!
Look I had a cocktail while out with my son – Judge away Judy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
Ended up having like a sip because my tastebuds are not sophisticated enough to appreciate so much cucumber
So when you take your kid to a food festival but all he wants is crackers with processed cheese
The way he loves his aunt Nene (Jenine)
Pomegranate and Rose infused wine!!!!
 Jenine had wheatgrass infused, mine was better
Aidan was disappointed that he didn’t make age grade for Craft station
Like a Bos, hehehe

Win with KidsBookClub!!!

Chill time!!!

The Douglas-Meyers household is a reading obsessed one, Rob and myself both love reading and get ridiculously excited in book shops. Aidan is no different, we have to be like “only one book Aidan, just one” when we go to book shops and it often ends in tears. The thing is, books are expensive and we can’t exactly afford a mini library for him …or can we.

I recently learnt about Kid’sBookClub and I think he might be getting his wish of “lots and lots of books mommy”. The service gives you the chance to build up a library that grows with your kid at the steal of R145 per month. Seriously you get two books for kiddo and two magazines for mom or dad all in a themed bag for the price of a meal at Spur.
– you guys know what magazines are right? it’s those glossy things you used to read when you had something called free time.

Aidan was extremely excited for the surprise that was dropped off at our house.
He received two books one about what animals eat and one about something called a cloud baby(I found that book annoying, especially because he makes me read it like 100 times a day).

I’m really chuffed with the whole concept, the books are specially picked for your child’s age group and you can add an additional kid at R99 and a third at R89. Free delivery and a bunch of free activity sheets online make this a bargain! KidsBookClub even donates R1 to the Bokamoso Educational trust for every month you sign up for, which is a great cause.


All you need to do is follow one or all of the prompts below and KidsBookClub could be sending you books for your little one, how awesome is that…go on it’s a great prize:
