Five on Sunday - April 28, 2024 ~ Greek Mythology Retellings, Elliott Turned 7, Monster Mini Golf, Apple Creek Arcade and Strawberry Cupcakes

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a good week! 


I purchased everything in this post

I'm not someone who plans what they are reading each month, but I do love a theme and I've picked up a few books that are Greek Mythology retellings that I need to read soon, so I thought I'd share them with you! 
  • Girl, Goddess, Queen by Bea Fitzgerald ~ I think this is more of a romantasy around Hades and Persephone - it's actually not something I've read any retellings of so I'm excited - I picked up a gorgeous copy from Waterstones too! 
  • Lore by Alexandra Bracken ~ This is a past Owlcrate book and it's not quite a retelling, but instead a twist with 9 greek gods forced to walk the Earth as mortals every 7 years as punishment and are hunted during that time! 
  • Threads That Bind by Kika Hatzopoulou ~ This is another Owlcrate book and it's based on the Greek Fates and their descendants - each can control people's threads! 
  • Atalanta by Jennifer Saint ~ This is a retelling of Atalanta, the only woman in the band of heroes, The Argonauts!  
What's your favourite retelling?! 


This week my littlest, Elliott, turned 7! He picked his fav - Boston Pizza to celebrate since he can have cheese pizza and dirt and worms. We did celebrate this weekend with a video game truck and it was wild - but the kids had a blast! 


This past weekend we checked out Monster Mini Golf for a friend's birthday and it was a blast - the set up is so cool and the kids had fun. Loved the glow in the dark bit! 


We also checked out Apple Creek Arcade in Airdrie this past weekend and it was so much fun! They have some really cool games - life size Hungry Hungry Hippos, Luigis Mansion, Axe Throwing, Virtual Games. It was a blast!


I made these Vegan Strawberry Cupcakes last week and they were sooo good - love that there is a ton of fresh strawberries and I used a cream cheese frosting on top! They are light and delicious! 

I hope you all have a good weekend!
