Snow Days

It’s really been a green Christmas and we’ve been unable to do some of the things we want to at this time of the year… like play in the snow. Finally, a couple days ago it got cold and started to snow. Our tobogganing hill down the street was usable and the ice was ready…

Father’s Day Car Show

This past Sunday was Father’s Day, so we all went into downtown Peterborough for a car show along Hunter Street. It was a mix of classics, modern cars and some exotic super cars. It was extremely hot out, so we didn’t spend a whole lot of time there, but I did manage to fire off…

Sliding on New Years Eve

For New Years Eve, our group of friends thought it would be fun to take our kids sliding at the hill we grew up on in Pickering overlooking the nuclear power plant. The hill has changed quite a bit as it looks like the city was trying to discourage sliding there. We had the entire…
