I hope that all of my readers in the US and Canada had a great holiday! I’m still technically on mine!
I headed back home to Ontario Canada at the end of June with my daughters. Staying at my parents house, and bringing our dog there as well. My parents have two dogs of their own, a Golden Retriever named Shadow, and a Cattle Dog/Border Collie Mix named Talon. I figured since Mello (our dog) is still a pup, it’s best to socialize him as much as possible, the perfect place, my parents house! The dogs get a long great![caption id="attachment_9595" align="alignleft" width="225"] Daughter sitting on Justin Bieber’s steps[/caption]
While up in Canada, we had a great time. Took in some fun entertainment such as the Rib Fest, where we ate too much, the girls had a ton of fun riding the rides and getting glitter tattoos. On Canada day we also made a visit to a tradition from when I was a kid, It’s Your Festival! We took in the sights, played some games, and of course shopped and ate too much … again….
On our way home, we decided to bring my BFF with us, as well as take my daughter on a little trip. Stratford Ontario. What’s so special about Stratford? Justin Bieber! That’s his home town, so of course my daughter was FREAKING OUT! We were able to have breakfast at the family diner him and his family frequent when he’s home, (amazing food by the way)and we took a walk, bought her[caption id="attachment_9597" align="alignright" width="212"] Me and my BFF @Dloslounge[/caption]
some souvenirs, and she sat on the steps outside of the theater where he used to sing before he made it to where he is now. It was adorable she was so excited! I think I won myself mom of the year in her eyes.
We got home, slept, and were on he road again, this time with hubby in tow! Off to Chicago where we’re visiting his family. It’s nice that he was able to spend some time with his Grandmother’s. One in her ninety’s and the other one who just had her 88th birthday. Both women amazing and in great health and shape for their age. Family, food and fun! My only complaint. It’s been WAY TOO HOT to do anything outdoors. So we’ve been inside family homes and out hotel room in the A/C.[caption id="attachment_9598" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Family Photo With Hubby’s Grandmother[/caption]
I’m back to it in a few days though, back home, sleep, then drive back up to Canada to take my BFF home and pick up my dog, it’s also where I’ll be spending a few more days to celebrate my birthday (Yay!).
I’ll tell you one thing though, it’s been crazy, I’ve eaten TOO MUCH, not worked out ENOUGH and I miss my zumba!!!! Can’t wait to get back on scheduled only to mess it up again when we head to Florida for a week.. ugh….
