Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live.  I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them.  I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures.  You can learn more about these houses here: Grimsby Beach - Visitor Info History and Heritage - Village of Grimsby I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo. This home was stunning in person, the picture doesn't do it justice.  The kids wanted to sit on these stools so bad but I wouldn't let them! I had to remind them we were the too look not touch.

When Your Heart is Full

This past weekend was really something special. It was a long weekend here (Family Day weekend) and also Valentine's Day on Friday. I woke up early on Friday morning to surprise flowers from my husband...it was such a nice way to start the day...especially since my day starts at 5:30 a.m.

On Friday evening we made a special family Valentine's Day pancake dinner for the kids and we spent the evening playing board games. It didn't last long, the kids are super sore losers but I guess I can't blame them since we did parents vs. kids and we kicked their butts! 😅😅😅😅😅
Parents vs Kids Game Night
Saturday night my hubby and I went out for an amazing dinner just us two. It was a much needed evening out and left us so full that I seriously had to lie down in the car the whole way home - I thought I was safe with stretchy pants but apparently, my belly was too full and my pants didn't want to stretch with it.
Deconstructed Cheesecake and a Cappuccino! Heaven!
Sunday was another day spent with family - I went to visit my parents with my daughter for the day...and my son had hockey and then a sleepover birthday party.

Monday, the official holiday...I had to work and so did hubby so my parents took the kids to an outdoor family festival complete with outdoor skating, hot chocolate, and outdoor band.

It was an amazing weekend filled with quality family time...and while I'm always happy to have the relief of going back to work after these weekends lol I still feel like my heart is full and I'm lucky to have them all in my life!
