Exploring the Oceans at Ripley's Aquarium of Canada

My family and I had an awesome time exploring all that is offered at the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada. We were very excited to see the 135,000 square foot largest, indoor aquarium in Canada that has two levels with over 16000 animals found in the oceans and lakes from around the world.

Visiting The Turtle Hatchery

Sri Lanka, an island in the Indian Ocean attracts five varieties of turtles. Turtles are pre-historic creatures that have been in the ocean for millions of years. However, due to human activities they are an endangered species. We visited a Turtle Hatchery and learned many interesting information. In the Turtle Hatchery, the turtle eggs are protected from poachers and predators.

Watching Toopy and Binoo When They Visited Our Town

My children enjoy watching Toopy and Binoo on TV, and were excited to see them performing at the Sony Centre. We enjoyed the theatrical musical show as Toopy and Binoo tried to look for the perfect song. The songs were catchy and we enjoyed singing along as well.

Our Fabulous Experience Watching Stars on Ice

We had an awesome time watching Stars on Ice at the Air Canada Centre. We enjoy watching figure staking on TV, but haven't watched a live-performance of Stars on Ice before so it was a wonderful treat for us, especially my daughter as it was the night before her birthday. We enjoyed the show and meeting/greeting the stars at the after party.

Flying trucks @MonsterJam

monster jam trucks
We had an awesome time at the 2013 Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour when they came to the Rogers Centre.

My mini Monster Jam fans and I had a wonderful time getting down and dirty at the Monster Jam Pizza Party in the Pit, where we got to meet the drivers, ask questions, get autographs and take pictures.

Decorating the Crush Car and shovelling the dirt to make the sand mound for the show were a lot of fun for my children.

We really enjoyed getting up close to take a look at the 10,000 pound Monster Truck.  My son being a fan of trucks asked Cam McQueen how come there were no doors and how these big trucks were built.  I was happy how nice the drivers were and they answered his questions and explained by showing, so a four year old could say that's cool :)  It would have been nice to see how the inside of the truck looks.

We went to watch the show on the opening day.  I really liked how they started the show with the national anthem and then had all the trucks revving up around the track.

The 1st half of the show was a racing competition.

During a small break they had competition with three wheel dirt bikes.

Before the freestyle part of the show started they had two robots and fireworks.

My children and we really enjoyed watching the second half of the show, when the trucks did tricks and was flying over the dirt mounds.

When the trucks were changing or had to be removed, the audience were distracted by t-shirts thrown for lucky people in the crowd to catch.

It was almost like the trucks were little toys because of the way they were flying around and tumbling.

Ontario Gas BBQ

ontario gas barbecue
BBQ season is here and most of us will be looking for a barbecue that is affordable and reliable. Ontario gas BBQ located in Concord, Ontario is the biggest BBQ store in Canada. It is close to Vaughan Mills mall.  They have a wide variety of barbecues, smokers and everything related to barbecuing.

I think most of us will be intimidated by the size of this place and think, "well all these barbecues would be pricey," but after I checked it out for myself I know that this isn't true.

I liked the setting and comfort of how the store was arranged; we can look for a barbecue without bumping into other things :)

There are no special sales at Ontario Gas BBQ as the prices stay the same all throughout the year.  As a consumer, I will not regret missing the sale as I know I will be getting a good deal all year.

I asked the owner of the BBQ store, Duff Dixon, which was the best BBQ he had.  He said, we get what we pay for in terms of features, but the quality of all the BBQs are superb from everything in the low budget to the high end models.
To make our options narrow and ease the task of buying a barbecue, we should let the knowledgeable salesperson know about our budget and the types of features we are looking for. 

The barbecues sold at Ontario Gas BBQ are high quality products mostly made in Canada and USA. These products have a good warranty, which guarantees us that it would work without any trouble. Buying a barbecue in a specialized store like this assures us that we won't have to look for a BBQ every year.
