Cake, Nay and I finally sat down and wrote up our 2011 summer list. I haven’t done a list with the kids in awhile but I was feeling in the mood and we had all those tourism brochures lying around so we started flipping through them all with pen in hand. Not surprisingly Cake wanted to do everything and Nay said no to almost everything.
Since it’s almost impossible to read this from the photo
seemed like a good idea at the time to use his painting I made for Cake I’ll just go ahead and type it out here for you!
Walk to Baskin Robbins for ice cream
Picnic at Mooney’s Bay
Go to the beach

Gatineau hot air balloon festival Sept 2-5 (btw I would NEVER go in one of these or allow my children to go in one, and I strongly discourage S. Geek from going in one too)
Lights show on Parliament Hill
Caravaggio @ National Gallery (this one might be a girl date for Robynn and I since kids may not appreciate art enough)
Eco-Odyssee (this is a new one for us, it’s apparently a 6km paddleboat ride to explore plants and wildlife. Cake saw the pictures and wanted to go buuuuut I’m not so sure Nay will sit in a boat for six kilometers)
Train museum in Smith’s Falls
Upper Canada Village
1000 Island Boat Tour

Have I missed anything? Let me know in the comments if you’ve got anything to add or if you’ve been to storytime and it’s ass-tastical.
