We have loved summer so far with a lot of simple backyard fun; we have been riding bikes and swimming in lake Ontario. Some days we even have been canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding on the lake. There is so much nature in the city of Toronto if you take the time to find it; it is great to live so close by a big a lake. We love to bike close to the water and even biked to Toronto Island (it is a 18 km round trip from the Beach).
I hope you are enjoying summer regardless if you are in the city or in the country.

One simple joy the seaside offers is collecting seashells. I used to have quite a collection of them as child. I guess I never grew up because I still enjoying collecting shells as an adult and have quite a collection in my home. There is something meditative in collecting shells by the shore. It amuses me to see that my daughter also likes it as much as I do.
I have to admit I did not grow up with lemonade stands. Lucky for me Lenore with Free Range Kids told me in a vlog how not to make a lemonade stand. When my daughter and her friend asked me to help them with making their lemonade for their stand I helped them find a recipe, they did most of the mixing and made the stand and sign themselves.

Today we both live in houses in a different area in the city and Debra has created quite a haven for both kids and adults. Debra also runs an outdoor playgroup in a neighborhood called The Beach.Add a comment
