2017 Mazda CX-3
We were able to truly go "zoom zoom" on this new 2017 Mazda CX-3. We enjoyed its smooth performance as we test drove it. It is a compact vehicle with all the features we need and more.

Our Stay at Lakes of Wasaga Parkbridge Resort

We had a lovely time during our stay in a chalet at Lakes of Wasaga Parkbridge Resort. At the resort, we have the option of either staying in a cottage or chalet. We can either own these four season homes or rent and enjoy during anytime of the year. The scenic view of the man-made lakes surrounding each lot of chalets and cottages is beautiful and the perfect setting to sit and relax. Our days in the chalet were relaxing and fun, as we did lots of outdoor activities.

Entertainment's space epic A Beautiful Planet made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) opens on April 29 at IMAX® Ontario Science Centre. We enjoyed watching a preview of this amazing film. I love how the film portrays the beauty of Earth - how unique and far beyond our imagination everything is, which is not possible by anyone but God. Watching this film made us appreciate the beauty of Earth more, and think about the changes we can make in our own lifestyle to preserve the beauty of Earth.
