This iconic city hall is a national historic site located in the centre of Stratford, Ontario; a charming small town well-known for its theatre, art, and music. We love visiting Stratford, which is a couple of hours from the GTA to watch outstanding theatrical performances at Stratford Festival. We enjoy walking along the river and surrounding area to admire the beautiful gardens and the overall atmosphere, as well as exploring businesses and restaurants in downtown Stratford.

Our Camping Adventure at Earl Rowe Provincial Park

One thing we love doing in the summer is camping at Ontario Parks. After a couple of years of pausing all travel plans due to the pandemic, we were super-excited to get back into some of our favourite things to do. With both our children being teenagers now and having their own schedule of activities to do, timing adventures become difficult. Planning a quick camping trip less than a couple of hours from home was fun and exciting for all of us. Thankfully, a camping trip has a lot of engaging and exciting activities for everyone in our family. We believe camping is a good way to connect with nature, which is great for our physical and mental health - and most importantly great for creating family memories!

Creative Art Books for Beginners and Giveaway

Finding time to explore and use our creative outlets can be challenging. Books that inspire us to get creative in very less time are useful during these times. We like the 15-Minute Painting: Effortless Watercolour and 15-Minute Drawing: Getting Started series that help us complete projects in one sitting and feel accomplished. These books are easy to follow as the instructions are written in a simple approachable way, and it has step-by-step projects that are easy and fun to follow and complete in 15 minutes. Since both books, give a quick overview of the basics tools and materials, it would be useful for beginners.
