At the Park

This past weekend, my wife Stephanie had to go to Vancouver for a work conference, leaving Patrick and myself to have a boys only weekend. As mentioned in a previous post, Patrick and I were down in Whitby this weekend for my niece’s first birthday party. We had no plans, and decided to spend the…
