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. But I

Weekend Recap: Snow, Snow, and More Snow

This past weekend was COLD. And it snowed. A LOT.

I shared my Friday night adventures with you already (read about it here). So I won't get into it but here's a much better, natural light selfie of me wearing one of my new soft and comfy Costco sweater finds....which was PERFECT for Valentine's Day don't ya think?

Between Friday and Sunday my kids basically lived in the snow. I believe it was on Saturday morning when they decided to clear the snow off the trampoline. Except instead of snow it was really thick ice. They were very impressed and tried to save it...I won't even ask what the heck they're learning in school (facepalm).

Then they decided to try to make a skating rink on our back patio. Sounds like a great idea in theory, but, our patio is sloped and I knew it wasn't going to work. HOWEVER they were working so well together I didn't have the heart to tell them their dreams of a backyard skating rink was basically dead before it even started. So I just left them to it. Keep following me for more parenting hacks lol. 


On Sunday, it was still cold but it was so beautiful and sunny. Hubby and I filled our travel mugs with some hot coffee and took the kids to the park for more tobogganing. They had so much fun. Not too shabby for a COVID-19 lockdown snow weekend. We ran into some friends, and the kids had a blast. 


Later on they built a couple of snow forts. They were outside forever...it was great. They really needed the fresh air.

Monday was a holiday - Family Day - for us. So, we packed up and met my brother and his family for some more ... you guessed it...tobogganing. I swear I never want to hear the word tobogganing for a really long time. Well...at least until next weekend anyway.

This morning we woke up, and you guessed it. More snow. The kids had a snow day at school (no school basically) so they were able to get some more outside fun in. I've been working from home since the pandemic started so it was business as usual for me. But I did sneak a few pictures of snowmageddon, and I jumped on the treadmill during my lunch break to get myself off my arse.

Tonight it's going to be a hot soup kind of dinner, and hopefully a cosy evening in front of the fire will follow.

Somewhere under there is our fire pit!

What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? If you say hot and sunny, can I move in with you? 🤣
