Are you looking for a funny and useful mom blog?

Good, you came to the right place!Hi, my name is Chantal Sarkisian and I am a new mom who had a sweet baby boy named Victor in Feb 2013. Join me on this blog to follow my new mommy journey while I am on my maternity leave. I'll ramble quickly about all the random thoughts that go through my head when I am feeding in the middle of the night, or trying to put my son to sleep. I'll also blog about my favourite things, give you helpful tools, and explore activities to do (mostly in the Ottawa region) with kids and maybe some product reviews too! Thanks for reading!

Summer with a 1.5 year old

As I was saying in my previous post, summer has been very different for me this year. While trying to establish a home business and looking after a one-year-old, summer hasn't really had the same typical priorities.

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. 

What have you been up to? Any suggestions to bring a one-year-old somewhere economical and fun? Please share below!
