Heading to Sherkston Shores? Check out our latest vacation spot to see where all the action is

I’ve never headed south in all the 22 years I’ve lived in Ontario.  We always go North to Muskoka or Haliburton so when I spoke with my stepmom about a fun vacation heading to Lake Erie to check out Sherkston Shores we were excited to explore.  &nbsp…

A relaxing summer weekend at The Red Umbrella Inn #myHaliburtonHighlands #ComeWander

With all the resorts we’ve been to, I wanted to share with you another family-friendly Inn, located in beautiful Minden, Ontario called The Red Umbrella Inn.  You may recall my Instastories and posts on social media as we promoted the area.  It’s such a lovely property here,  just about 2 1/2 hours roughly from Toronto, hop on the 404…

Our summer road trip with Toyota Sienna

Ah, our first time driving a minivan, I gotta say, the “Sienna is the official van of family fun”.  This review will be done in two parts.  One by me and the other by Papa Ash since he’s the driver of our family.  I’ll tell you first that this was great and the SAFETY features are the best compared to the…

Discover Nottawasaga Inn and Resort

We had just gotten back from cottaging in Haliburton upon settling in for a couple of nights at Nottawasaga Inn and Resort, nestled in beautiful Simcoe County along the Nottawasaga River.  It’s about a 45 min drive North of Toronto and if you aren’t into the lake or cottage, this resort is for you!  As I am writing this, I think this is the…
