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!

Hiking the Niagara River Trail

Every year over the May long weekend (Victoria Day here in Ontario) we pack up the kids and the trailer and head down to Niagara Falls for our first camping trip of the season. Unfortunately, the current lockdown put a halt on camping plans until mid-June so we had to find something else to keep up the long weekend family adventure tradition. 

I'm ALWAYS bugging the kids to go on walks and hikes with me, and my requests are usually met with huge sighs coupled with extreme begging and protests to not go! 

On Friday Scott and I had the day off work, the kids were plugged into remote learning but we snuck them out early. 

I had no idea this amazing trail was so close to us (less than an hour away). We had so much fun exploring the river trail and then hiking through the forest. We were exhausted by the end but the kids loved it and honestly, it was so nice to just be outside and spending time together. No phones, no video games. It was perfect and we can't wait to go again.
