William’s 7th Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated William’s 7th birthday by taking some friends to Riverview Bowling in downtown Peterborough. Bowling has become the go-to birthday party place for our family because the kids love it and they have all the food and stuff right there and it’s super affordable. Being so close to Christmas, it’s always difficult trying…

Kingston

A couple weeks ago, my wife and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary, so we dropped the kids and dog off with family and took a trip to Kingston, Ontario – about a 2 hour drive from home. We spent the evening walking around the downtown and ducking in and out of a couple shops……

Toronto Zoo

Back in October our family had a free weekend, so a last minute decision, and we ended up at the Toronto Zoo. We used to have a membership several years ago but found that we weren’t going enough to justify it. They were having a Halloween weekend, and kids that dressed in costume got in…
