We’re Going Camping…again

So the family and I have decided that we're going to try camping again this summer.  If the rain holds off this week, we'll be sleeping under the stars on Wednesday and Thursday night, at South Mountain Park...about 15 minutes from home. Our last trip was fun (ish) but I really thing we bit off more than we could chew.  See, we had to drive almost 2 hours to get there, we needed way too much stuff, and...well, it was cold and rainy.  I don't … [Read more...]

#NokiaUnfenced in the Canadian Rockies (Part 1)

Techies, show hosts, mom bloggers and photo bloggers.  Though we were all different, we all had a few things in common.  We use social … [Read more...]

Disney 2010/2011 Part 1

Last year, my Mom decided that she didn't want to buy us all stuff we didn't need for Christmas.  She was tired of the hustle and bustle, and the wasted money.  Though she always bought us awesome gifts, things break, get lost, and after a very short time, they lose their meaning.  So last year she announced that this year would be different. She's taking us to Disney World. And, here we are!  My family (DH, myself, and Ben and William … [Read more...]

Simply Balanced. The clue that we received after our Breakfast in the sky.  We all find our way back down to our awaiting Man EcoCabs and enjoy the drive through Downtown Toronto to the Yoga Lounge.
