[Haul] — Small Loblaws Haul

Here’s a small little Loblaws haul for you all. I’m quite pumped about trying the McDonald TarTar sauce – it’s one of my faves. Can’t wait to make some fish and chips to try it out! Have you tried them out before? I think the next sauce I’ll get is the Big Mac sauce – so I can make burgers at home. I wonder if my Hubby will know the difference? We’ll see. Stay tune for more hauls and reviews!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Toronto Railway Museum & Ripleys Aquarium

My son loves all types of transportation – so riding the Toronto Museum Train was a must on the list. The mini train seriously is nothing much but he still got very excited. An adult must be riding it with him – it cost $6.00 for the both of them. Whatever makes your kid happy right? I believe it was less than a 5 minute ride around the area.

 

After the mini train ride – Ripley Aquarium was our next destination. We’ve wanted to visit this place for awhile – so fitting it into our summer calendar was a must.

My whole family was excited when we got to the entrance. The tanks of fishes were so gorgeous! There’s so much to learn and see. I am sure that both munchkins’ will have class trips in the future here.

My faves were the jellyfishes. So unique and interesting. The play area was small and crowded but that doesn’t stop my son for having fun and playing with other kids.

We bought some candies at the gift shop to end our fun day out. We took about 2.5 hour to walk through the whole aquarium. If we had more time – I think I’ll go through it one more time. It’s a nice place to go once but I’m not sure if I want to revisit? Maybe in a few years?

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Lake Wilcox Park

Fun day at Wilcox Lake Park with the kiddos. It was our first time here and boy was it busy! It’s a nice park with picnic area, barbecue area, park area, and Water Park. A pathway to walk near the lake too. Too bad we didn’t have enough time – Hubby wanted to take a walk around the lake area.

It was a nice little get together before all the kids start school again. Hopefully next time it won’t be as busy!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Barrie Hill Farm & Wasaga Beach

What a wonderful time at Barrie Hill Farm with our friends! It was our first time picking blueberries and strawberries. At first – hubby wasn’t too thrilled about the idea but he ended up enjoying it.

Munchkin#1 did not pick anything because he is OCD and didn’t want to touch anything. His job was to hold the bucket while his parents collected the goods. He had a lot of fun with his friend running around the farm.

After around 3 hours being at the farm – we headed for lunch at our friends Japanese restaurant. We had such an amazing meal – all of us were stuffed!

We stopped by Wasaga for about 2 hours after lunch. The water was quite cold but the kids still loved it.
What an amazing fun day out with our friends and we got to meet some new friends too.

Have a LOVELY day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Canada’s Wonderland

When was the last time I ever step foot in Canada’s Wonderland? I think over 13 years ago! Crazy much? It was nice to be back! We visited Canada’s Wonderland late July with our two kiddos. Munchkin#1 was overly excited even before we got in. Munchkin#2 behaved so well even after an 8 hour day out. I serious could not complain!

We stayed at the kids’ area and with eight hour we had. It was just not enough time for all the rides plus the park was so busy and so much to do too! Definitely worth getting the season pass!

We had to literally bribe & drag Munchkin#1 out of Wonderland! He loved it and is constantly asking to go back. He sure doesn’t know how fortunate he is to be enjoying all these summer activities. Sometimes I feel like our kids have life so good. For sure Wonderland will be a place to be back. Till next time!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Exploring Downtown Toronto

What an experience! I don’t think I ever explore Downtown, Toronto even though I live in this city. We drop by here and there but never walked around to view the buildings. It was nice bringing my 2 aunts for some sightseeing. Too bad we didn’t have enough time that day – otherwise we drop by Ripley’s Aquarium too.

We walked around for over four hours and settled at Earls for a sit down dinner.

Glad they both get to enjoy the downtown life. See buildings and kind of soak in the culture a little bit. The weather was beautiful that day too!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Sixth Year Wedding Anniversary

Sixth year wedding anniversary with the love of my life was somewhat relaxing but with a day of kids activities. Before our anniversary lunch – we headed to Munchkin#2s first swimming lesson. He loved the water and was very comfortable in it.

After the swimming lesson – we headed to Good Catch for lunch. I ordered a cocktail to share with the Hubby. Ordered my first Spicy Salmon Poké and my thoughts? Nothing really that special. Not sure what the hype is about with everyone? Hubby loved his lobster sub.

After lunch we headed to Munchkin#2s’ baptism class.

Quite an eventful day for sure but we got to spend the rest of our day at home. Six years – 2 kids & a home. What more can we ask for? I am forever blessed with my family. I am content where life is & all we need is more time to spend with each other. Can money buy time?

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Safari Niagara

It was our first visit to Niagara Safari and it was amazing. It took about 1.5 hour drive with 1 pit stop. It was an extremely hot day but thank goodness both kids behaved & cooperated.

 

There were so many animals to see. We walked about half way than decided to hop on the wagon ride to see the rest of the Safari. This place is huge!

Munchkin#1 learned so much about animals and his fave was the giraffes. It’s cute how little things interest him. Other than the giraffes – his favorite part was the park. He wasn’t too interested with the water park. Which it was a good thing for us – no need to change him. The park itself is huge. There’s a lot to do! From what I remember – we spent around 5 hours there. We sure did soak in those vitamin C & D that day! For sure we’ll be visiting again one day!

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Food] — Tim Hortons Breakfast

e344

Tim Horton has been one of my go to for breakfast lately. They have a wide range of choices and sometimes it’s quite hard to decide. They’ve came out with wraps and sandwiches for awhile now. I love their wraps! They have much healthier choices than fast food restaurants have and that’s why I love this place. Lately I’ve been addicted with their Chipotle crispy chicken wrap! What are your fave here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Milestone’s Steakhouse • Markham & Review

e349e350

We don’t dine out too often with two kids but when we do – I try to pick a not too crowded restaurant. Milestone is one of our favorite places to be because of their food. Love their kids menu too!

We had an enjoyable dining experience here every time. Plus both kids were well behaved that we got to enjoy our dinner.

e351 e352

My fave is the chicken sandwich. Its huge – I can never finish it. I always have to pack the other half home. Munchkin loved his mini sliders with fries too! Hubby is a steak lover – so he got his fixed of steak here. Stay tune for more foodie reviews and adventures! I love exploring new restaurants too!

Have an YUMMILIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Wild Wings • Markham & Reviews

e353 e354 e355

Looking for bar food? Wild Wings is the place to be! Hubby & I were craving for wings & fries – we decided on Wild Wings since it was close by! We ordered two pounds of wings plus a regular fries. We always stuck to honey garlic but this time we ordered something new to try. It was creamy ranch. Have to say – not a big fan of it. I will stick with my honey garlic wings!

The restaurant was quiet that day – so the service was fast. It was a nice date night with the Hubby with no kids! Date nights are hard to come by and we treasure these moments! Stay tune for more foodie reviews and adventures!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Beauty] — First Impression of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen

My first impression of the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen was AMAZING! Yes – I am base-ing this review after trying it for the first time.

Number one thing that bothers me about applying sunscreen to my face is the stickiness and tackiness of it. That’s why I avoid sunscreen on my face most of the time. With this one – it feels like nothing was on my face after applying it! I could not believe it – it has a high SPF too!

Now I won’t be avoiding any sunscreen on my face anymore. I’ll definitely be stocking up a few bottles of these! How come I wasn’t introduced to this amazing sunscreen sooner? I highly recommend you all to try it out. It’s AMAZING! It can be easily purchase on Amazon!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Pink Kitchen Accessories

Sharing a home accessories haul with you all. I’ve been looking for pink containers ever since I moved into my new place. I had no luck. I wasn’t about to give up because I like things in my home a certain way.

I was so thrilled to find these pink microwavable containers at One’s Better Living. The larger containers were at $6.99 for 3 and the smaller ones are at $6.99 for 6. This is an amazing deal! I’ll be picking up more soon. Now I can throw out the old containers!

Also I picked up a new can opener and a few pairs of chopsticks at T&T Supermarket. I’m easily satisfied when I see things matching! Am I weird or what?

Have a HAPPY day!!!
