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.

Weekend Vibes: Saturday Walks with My Crew

This weekend started like every other weekend around here. My husband had to work Saturday morning, we had no groceries, no clean underwear, and there was the all too familiar stench of boy farts and sweat coming from my son's room. Don't I just paint the prettiest of pictures?

I can't say I tackled the day's chores right away. Or the state of my son's room. But what I can tell you, is that I drank 3 cups of coffee, and ignored the kids for about 2 hours while I lost myself in my blog before I decided to get moving on my very glamorous Saturday morning to-do list. 

I'm sure you all have a similar list: strip the beds/wash the sheets, do 1 million loads of laundry, fantasize about living on the beach in Malibu with a gorgeous man servant who scrubs the toilets so you don't have to. Then pull yourself together, swear under your breath that you live with a bunch of effing wild animals...and promptly put off the rest of the house cleaning and toilet bowl cleaning 'till Sunday.

After I got that out of the way, I tricked my kids into coming out for a hike with me by telling them we were going to Costco and I'd buy them some ice cream. I softened the blow by getting them some hot chocolate before thrusting them out into the cold fall air for our brisk walk. Luckily they were so distracted by the hot chocolate they didn't complain too much about the walk. Overall we walked for over an hour, and they didn't really start complaining that their legs were going to fall off until the last 15 minutes. Overall it was a success and I already told them to rest up 'cause we're doing it again tomorrow! hahahahaha

Some highlights from our walk today:
