Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!

Camping Bucket List 2020


If someone would have told me 20 years ago, that I would end up being a camper, I wouldn't have believed it. My family (mom and dad) are not really outdoorsy people, we didn't go on family hikes or ski trips, or day trips to the lake. And I never wore running shoes as part of an outfit until I was living away at college and let's face it, was just too lazy to wear my platform Mary-Janes to class (yes I know, I'm totally dating myself here).

But now, fast-forward to being an adult (gasp!) and having a family of my own, I've learned to embrace the outdoors. My kids are BUSY, and that meant when they were really young, spending time outside rain or shine. And as they've gotten older, and they're easier to travel with, we have plunged ourselves knee-deep into camping.

We tried tent camping once - epic fail. And it took several years later to finally try again, although this time, we splurged for a trailer. First, a pop-up tent trailer, which we loved but quickly realized we needed something bigger. Now we have a hybrid trailer which is the best of both worlds. Sleeping in tent end beds, but we have a kitchen and bathroom too which is so helpful.

We've visited quite a few private and provincial campgrounds in Ontario the past few summers and we're gearing up to take the trailer out again this year - if this pandemic ever ends!

This summer, if we can break out of this quarantine/self-isolation era we currently live in, I'd like to visit the following places:


We camped here a few years ago, and have always wanted to go back. This year we have tentative plans to visit the park again in August with a few other families. Cross your fingers for us!


Other places I want to visit (will be our first time):


What are you travel or camping plans this summer?
