Sherkston Shores – A Beautiful Family Getaway

Sherkston Shores

This past summer, my kids and I had the opportunity to visit Sherkston Shores, an all ages RV resort on shores of Lake Erie. Sherkston Shores has over 560 acres of beautiful land that is connected with paths and small roads that are often navigated by golf carts (the popular way to get around at Sherkston). We were really unsure what to expect of an RV resort, but let me tell you that it was NOTHING like I thought it might be. This family getaway was an experience that we would like to make a tradition every single year! Sherkston … Continue reading

At the Cottage with Bugs

Cottaging with Bugs

The cottage with bugs is inevitable, right? Not everyone is a fan of bugs, however and bugs don’t love all people equally either! Oh, those bugs….I’m all for equality! Spread the love, will you? My daughter is a prime example of this. Mosquitoes absolutely adore her! We always joke that she is super sweet and that is why the bugs love her so much. Those bug bites on the back of her legs are just the start of our cottage trip last summer! Aside from the bugs, I am a HUGE fan of going to the cottage. When I was … Continue reading

A Fun Filled Day at @Centreville4Fun with the Family #centreville4fun

I have a few memories from when I was a child in grade two and my field trip to Centre Island in Toronto. In my opinion, every child who lives in the GTA should have the opportunity to visit the Island! It’s almost like a right of passage. The excitement of taking a Ferry across to the island to the beach, the splash pad, the fun paths and even Franklin’s Children’s Garden to the highlight of Centreville! My family and I just got back from a “staycation” in Toronto. The highlight of our trip was definitely our visit to Centreville … Continue reading

A Family Staycation at the @GrandToronto

Earlier this week, my family and I headed to the Grand Hotel & Suites in Toronto for a mini “staycation”. We visited Centreville (more on that in another post), went to the Eaton Centre and enjoyed some down time in the hotel pool. I can tell you how beautiful this hotel was, but we all know that pictures speak louder than words, so here we go…. Our double room suite was extremely spacious and clean! We were also spoiled with two washrooms, and while the beds were much softer than we are used to, the duvets were luxurious. We were … Continue reading
