The weather has been really great and I feel a bit sad that we haven't maximized it. Being on a budget also limits all of our activities as well.
That being said, here are a few things I did with Victor this summer!
Here's Victor enjoying the last of the tulips at the Ottawa tulip festival near Dows lake.
Here we are having a day trip to the stables at the RCMP building. We were on a budget so we packed a picnic and enjoy the museum for free! The kids had fun hiding behind this tree while I took a picture
On the way to Toronto, we stopped at the Big Apple for a snack and to visit the small animal farm. It's free, it's cheap and it's delicious!
Victor enjoyed his baby ice cream cone for about one second.
I was getting ready to host a pop-up shop this summer. Therefore, I was visiting a lot of antique shops. Here's Victor enjoying a small rocking chair outside of "hoarders antique market" near Britannia.
Here is Victor having fun at "the pond". We had an impromptu play date and picnic with some good friends.
Here's the entire family on a walk to grab some dessert at "three sisters bakery" on Kilbourne. This was one of my favorite days of summer.
Here we are at Westboro beach. We just brought Victor for an hour during a busy Sunday. It was so hot, we just wanted him to cool down.
This is Victor enjoying the fruits of his labour. Our garden has been doing really well this year. He likes to look for the cucumbers that are hiding under the leaves. He calls out " concombre, concombre?" So sweet!
Well it's only the beginning of August and we have a few more things planned this summer. I hope you mommas are all enjoying your family time this summer.
