Summer of awesome

Last year I wrote up a bucket list for fun and exciting things to do with the kids in the summer. We managed to do almost everything on it. This year I'm going with a list to make this the Summer of Awesome. Lynn at TurtleHead is so on top of Ottawa events it's not funny. She has a great list for her fam, which is where I got the inspiration for mine.

Here's what I'm hoping to do:

  • spend time at the cottage
  • have friends up to the cottage
  • camp out in the backyard
  • run a race (Wee Ones and Big Strides is coming up!)
  • bring the kids to see J play baseball and me play baseball
  • go to the beach
  • swim at an outdoor pool
  • Valleyview Farm or the Agriculture Museum
  • Little Ray's
  • Calypso
  • Skyzone
  • Kids Kingdom
  • Puppet's Up
  • Shrine Circus
  • Marvel Universe Live (I won tickets - whoo!)
  • Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto
  • IKEA
  • autocross
  • motocross
Most of these things we've done before but there are some new ones. And as the kids get bigger and it gets easier to take them places, I find myself enjoying our outings a lot more.

Little K's last day of preschool is tomorrow and Little J is done school in a week. Bring on the awesome!


  1. I'm so curious about Marvel Live - can't wait to hear your review. Will it be fun? funny? cheesy? scary? It's the great unknown!

    Have you been to the Shrine Circus before? Was it worth it?

    1. I hope it's not too scary!

      We've been twice to the circus. It's pretty incredible actually.
