Toronto Zoo

Back in August, we took the family to the Toronto Zoo. We used to have a membership here until life just got too busy. This was our first time back in about 4 years. We spent the entire day checking out all the exhibits we could before jumping on the Zoomobile for a couple laps.…

First Day of School

Growing up, I never once remember having my photo taken on the first day of school. My parents always left that up to the pros during picture day later into the school calendar. Look on the socials the other day, and it is nothing but back to school photos. I’m not a fan of posting…

We see the images on…
