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.

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.

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.

Cook with Local Food this Summer

local food in Ontario
With Local Food Week coming up from June 6-12th, Longo's is on a mission to help us understand exactly which fruits and vegetables are in season during the summer months - so we can enjoy delicious seasonal food. For the past 60 years the Longo's family has maintained a commitment to provide customers with the best fresh and local food possible. I like that local food has gained momentum because of sustainability concerns and consideration for local farmers. See the above infographic they have created to help us cook with local food this summer.

We love going to the Sky Zone Trampoline Park, as it is a fun way for the entire family to jump and play. The fourth Sky Zone location in the GTA has opened at 240 South Blair Street, Whitby. This new 34,500 square foot facility in Whitby includes a gigantic Open Jump Court, two Ultimate Dodgeball courts, a three lane SkySlam basketball court, a four lane Foam Zone and four large party rooms. Sky Zone at Whitby offers a toddler trampoline area, just for the little ones, so they can jump safely with other kids their own size and age.

Make Informative Decisions with the Help of the Geek Squad at Best Buy

As parents, we all do some degree of "helicopter parenting" and hover over our children either because we fear they might get hurt or we can't let go of the idea that they are our babies. While conversing with Rebecca, a parent representative at the Best Buy #PermissionToHover back to school event, we agreed that the degree of how much each parent "hovers" over their children depends on the individual child, the situation, and the parent.

Carefree Camping at the KOA Deluxe Cabin

We loved our two-night weekend stay at the Toronto West KOA in Campbellville, Ontario. There are more than 485 Kampgrounds of America (KOA) locations in the U.S.A. and Canada since founder Dave Drum constructed a campground on the banks of Yellowstone River in Billings, Montana in 1962. The campgrounds are conveniently located close to the highways and byways so we can stay overnight and relax during road trips without detouring before proceeding with long journeys.
