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.
