Thrilling adventure of the Whirlpool Wet Jet tour

whirlpool wet jet niagara falls
We were extremely thrilled to experience Whirlpool Jet tours at Niagara Falls, Ontario this summer! We first saw how fun it looked during our Niagara Bell Cruise. Glad we waited for our kids to be a little older, so everyone can have a memorable time. It was worth the wait, as we had an awesome thrilling experience.

We were excited to drop-in aCrock a Doodle in Niagara Falls for an afternoon of fun. This pottery themed creative space with friendly staff made us feel welcomed. This studio is setup in a way that makes it comfortable for children to sit down and paint. For adults, it gives an opportunity to let go of everything and be a kid again. We loved it!

Always thinking of the next fun thing to do at Fern Resort #OntariosAllinclusive

fern resort
While at Fern Resort, the only thing we thought of was vacationing! The mood is all set from the time you walk into the resort till the time you check-out. This resort is all inclusive, so all the meals and activities are taken care of. This made my husband and I feel at ease since we didn't need to worry about the meals, and were able to participate in the activities we wanted to, and children were able to do activities they wanted to.

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.

Experiencing The Magician’s Nephew at Shaw Festival

The Magician’s Nephew at Shaw Festival
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.

Travelling Light with Netflix Download

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.

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.
