During the Shaw Festival 2017, we had a memorable experience watching Wilde Tales. Our children enjoyed being part of the one-hour pre-show workshop, where they got to work with the cast and be part of the play. This year we were eager to see what show will be suitable to watch as a family - and went to watch The Magician's Nephew at the Festival Theatre, and experience the one hour workshop of Creating the Magician's Nephew before the show.

We enjoyed spending a day at Bingemans. It is a fabulous place for everyone in the family to enjoy indoor activities from bowling to arcades and play structures. There are several stocking stuffer packages we can purchase at Bingemans that would make wonderful gifts for anyone you know.

We enjoy having the option of downloading Netflix shows, and taking it with us when we are on-the-go! It totally helps us pack light when travelling - no need to take along DVDs! The downloaded shows and movies from Netflix certainly came in very handy numerous times during our long road trips this summer.

The Canadian Museum of History with its dramatic, curved lines designed by Canadian Aboriginal architect Douglas Cardinal is considered one of the most striking architectural masterpieces of the 20th century. This museum is a wealth of knowledge, as it presents the national narrative of the history of Canada and its people.

We chose to stay at the Cardinal, Ottawa South KOA during our road trip from Toronto towards Ottawa, Outaouais, and the Laurentians. Staying at the KOA deluxe cabin made it comfortable to relax, play, and make our meals leisurely before heading further into our trip. We love that the KOA locations are close to the highway making it easy to stay and explore the area.

During our visits to Sri Lanka, a country famous for its exceptional tea, we have had the pleasure to visit tea plantations. The landscapes in these regions are memorable and beautiful. I have seen the plantation workers hard at work during the heat of the day hand-picking every leaf that we enjoy. Most of the workers I have seen doing this tedious work are women. As tea-lovers, we have been indulging the delicious, different flavours of Pure Leaf tea.
