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!

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:

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'm not going to lie, I would have loved to have a seat at this super cute tiki bar with a cold drink in my hand!


The artwork and decorative touches on some of these homes were just amazing and so cute. I couldn't resist snapping a few shots of this "Just Breathe" sign. And what a fitting reminder to just stop and breathe while we're still navigating through this pandemic. COVID-19, I'm over you. You can go away now!


We finished the day with a home cooked meal (kids helped Nonna make dinner), a family UNO game, and night swimming. Who says you can't have fun during COVID-19?


What have you been doing to keep busy?
