Making Some Time for the Family

Weekends are always good for quality time with the family. Being able to relax and enjoy each others company is always enjoyable.

This weekend, being a family themed holiday, we made some time for our toddler to go out and experience the world. We planned for lots of fun activities where Alyssa could just enjoy being a toddler.

On Saturday we travelled to London, Ontario. I would highly recommend the Children's Museum where Alyssa played and explored for hours. She enjoyed the space themed room where she could watch a space launch and gaze at the constellations. They also offer a Where you Live exhibit, Science in Your World and a Dinosaur exhibit.

For a family adventure, the London Children's Museum offers a fun adventure for the family at a reasonably cheap price. Alyssa really enjoyed a trip to London and we have decided that we would go back and try to experience all the city has to offer.

We continued our weekend by heading back to Dundas and enjoying the outdoor skating rink located in Dundas Driving Park. Alyssa loved the outdoor adventure. Enjoying the winter with the family was a nice treat.

The rink is beautiful. It offers a great time for the family and would make a nice outing for anyone. It is free to skate and there was a concession that offered food and hot drinks.

Making little family trips to spend time together helps the family bond. Alyssa really enjoyed the museum and wants to continue to skate. Enjoying the outdoors is great for the family.


  1. Brett, your daughter is absolutely adorable. If you need a babysitter let me know! Your blog made my heart melt. You are so blessed to have an amazing family. Be thankful for the moments while she is young, soon as you know it she will be asking you about boys!

  2. Wow Brett, this is very interesting. Your daughter is incredibly cute. Joanna is right, you better get ready to fight off those boys. I definately look forward to reading more.

  3. I have to say that skating there is a fantastic idea. The park is gorgeous. I was just there last week and I can't say enough good things about it. I have a million amazing childhood memories there and it sounds that you are giving your daughter those too.

  4. Brett,
