Summer, here we come!

Yesterday was officially the first day of summer vacation for all of us.  I saw my family for dinner of burgers and salad. It was delicious.  

Today, we times everything so our plans worked out with Ws nap schedule beautifully. 

First, we took the kids to the Brookbanks Park on their bikes while W napped in the stroller. By the time we headed back, it was close to 10:30.  


So off to The Evergreen Brickworks we went. We met my brother and his daughter there, had Jamie Kennedy’s famous French fries and walked around exploring the ecosystem.  The kids played a little in the Children’s Garden, watering some plants and painting rocks. Michael napped Willow in the Tula. 

Our last activity of the day is swimming at the YMCA and all of us went in the pool. It was so quiet due to the fact that it’s a long weekend. I think the swimming tuckered W out.   She’s been sleeping since 3:47pm.  The kids are playing in the mat room while we wait for W to wake. 

We’re going to go for dinner after at Tasty Delight on Leslie. It’s our favourite go-to inexpensive place for food. Then it’s home time for bed. 

Overall it has been a great day. Now, this is how you do a staycation!

Miracle Nap

It’s not often that my babies will nap for an hour or more without too much effort. I took the girls to the parkway plaza just to get out of the house and to visit the library. 

Michael had mentioned using Camilla on Willow for teething and I thought to buy a box – might as well.  10 vials for $8.99 or 30 for $15.99 – that was a no brainer. 

MImmediately after I purchased it I gave W a dose.  She liked it and kept opening her mouth for more.  She was due for her nap in about less than an hour so I’d hoped for it to work by then. 

After a visit to the library and the grocery store, she grew tired and started to fuss.  So I left the mall to walk outside.  The humidity level had dropped to 37% by now and you could really tell the difference.  The winds were blowing and it felt nice.  

By the time we reached home, she was already asleep.  Being hot and tired I didn’t want to walk anymore. So I parked her and played with Violet.  I was worried she would hear Vs voice and wake up.  Luckily she didn’t and ended up sleeping for almost an hour – which is so rare!
