Museum of Illusions

Museum of Illusions
We were thrilled to explore Toronto's newest attraction, Museum of Illusions, located at 132 Front Street East close to St. Lawrence Market. Museum of Illusions first opened in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015, and now they have franchises in cities such as New York, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, and Berlin. It was mesmerizing to experience the trickery of our senses at the different displays and interactive spaces.

Visiting Prince Edward Island Once Again

prince edward island charlottetown
The classic novel of Anne of Green Gables I read at school as a child, and the movies we have watched was an inspiration for our trip to Prince Edward Island in 2010. In our previous trip we flew to P.E.I, so this time we planned to stop in Summerside, Cavendish, and Charlottetown during our road trip from Ontario to Quebec and New Brunswick to revisit the places our children once visited when they were little. Prince Edward Island situated in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is a place we always think of returning to because of its beautiful sandy beaches, and something about the island that always calls you back.

Hiking the Trails of Killbear

Killbear provincial park
While driving to Northern Ontario we can see a drastic scenic change from rolling hills with farms and fields found in Southern Ontario to rugged, rocky landscapes with rocks and forests. This geological change is prominent when we visit Ontario Parks such as Killbear.

The Entomica Insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie

Entomica Insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie
I am glad my family and I visited the Entomica insectarium in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The visit helped us see how insects are important for vegetation, wildlife, and the eco-system. Getting to take an up-close look at the different insects during the tour by an expert in the insectarium really helped us see how each insect is unique. We enjoyed touching, holding, and observing the different insects from around the world. I felt this visit has helped us to become more empathetic towards insects.

Canal Historic Site in Sault Ste. Marie

Canal Historic Site in Sault Ste. Marie
During our recent road trip to Sault Ste. Marie, my family and I enjoyed visiting the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site. We can learn about how canals and locks operate at this site either by discovering at our leisure or joining a guided tour. By taking the guided tour and exploring the visitor's centre we learned a lot about the lock system and canals.

Our Visit to Grundy Lake Provincial Park

We loved our hikes at Grundy Lake Provincial Park because of the beautiful scenic views from every angle! Other than the bothersome flies, we enjoyed the peaceful scenic views, listening to the birds, and the sound of the frogs croaking. Our children loved the cliffs and the adventure of climbing them.

We loved our stay at Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, which is a beautiful small coastal community. It is a wonderful place to relax and feel the slow pace of life that we are loosing in our fast paced city life. We enjoyed the atmosphere, as we strolled along the streets of Saint Andrews and checked out the stores, restaurants, and attractions.

Strawberry Banana Milk Bars

With the summer heat we are always looking for ways to cool down, so I made this delicious milk bars or popsicles with strawberry and banana. In June when it was strawberry season in Ontario, it has become our tradition to take the kids and pick our own strawberries in a local farm close to home. I usually remove the top and cut the strawberries into two and freeze it.

Our Stay at Santa's Whispering Pines Campground Cabin

When we went to Santa's Village, we decided to stay over one night at Santa's Whispering Pines Campground so we didn't have to drive back on the same day. This being our first overnight camping trip with the kids, we were very excited. Santa's Whispering Pines Campground has been voted to be the Best Campground in Muskoka for the last two years, so we knew we were going to be in good hands. Except for a few mosquito bites, thank God everything was smooth and we loved our experience.
