A new way to listen….

Earbuds.  Let’s dish about them.  My mother is adamant that my kids are not to use them, especially my son who likes to wear them when gaming.  “Nothing should go in the ear!” as she yelled at me when we were in Winnipeg this past summer and the fact that my son said he hears the game better and his friends when he…

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

When you think of going to the lake here in Ontario, do you think of Lake Erie? 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

Wrap up the summer with Summer Day Camp at the YMCA!

The countdown is on, so to speak!  Am, I right?  I wish I had signed my kids up for the end of summer at Summer Day  Camp at the Y for August, well at least before we head to Sherkston Shores and Winnipeg.   Maybe we when get back from Winnipeg, as I’d love it if the kids learned some new skills and…

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…
