As hard as it is to imagine when you look out your window these days and see all that snow, summer is coming up fast and like many parents, I’m wondering what will the kids do this summer.

Big Break PEI and spring are just around the corner.

Well, the wait is over! Spring is almost in the air and Big Break PEI is just around the corner. Woohoo! I have been struggling since the fall with what to do with my Tuesday nights. 🙂 I was so used to doing post-episode interviews with the Big Break Ka’anapali, Highway 18 and Big Break Michigan contestants that when Haymes ...
