New York City Travel Highlights

I am often asked what my favourite travel destination has been, and while I love the sunny south, and have had a wonderful time in many Canadian and American cities, my heart always goes back to NYC. My husband and I spent a fantastic few days there (we traveled one August) and I have incredibly […] Read more…

Family Fun in Boston, MA

Some of our trips are planned months in advance (Nashville, Vancouver, Las Vegas, New York City, Jamaica), other mere days. Our recent on-a-whim trip to Boston, Massachusetts fits in the latter category…and we had a blast! Here are the highlights. Porter Airlines I’m going to save some of the details for now, as I have […] Read more…

Meanwhile, On Kate’s Instagram…

While I still love to delve into topics here on the blog, I also do a lot of “microblogging” on social media. I have the most followers on Twitter, but I’m finding almost zero interaction there lately (is it just me?) so I post a lot to Facebook and Instagram, where my followers seem much […] Read more…

Family Fun in Ottawa, Ontario

Disclosure: This post was generously sponsored by IHG. Opinions are, as always, my own. I’ve always loved a good road trip, which is not surprising since I started travelling at such an early age. At only a few weeks old, my parents buckled me up (or, probably not – it was 1977!) and took me […] Read more…

Our Tour of Corus Entertainment (Plus My Girls’ Interviewing Debuts!)

While in the big city recently, the girls and I were invited to tour the Toronto waterfront headquarters of Corus Entertainment…and had so much fun! Since we arrived early (shocker, right?) we spent some time on Sugar Beach (adjacent to the Redpath Sugar Factory) right outside the building. No swimming allowed, but what fun to […] Read more…

Family Fun at Casa Loma, Toronto

“North America’s only full-sized castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction” – how could we resist the opportunity to take the girls to Casa Loma? Photo courtesy Casa Loma We started our self-guided tour on the lower level (full disclosure: because we were hungry and that’s where the cafe is!) and worked our way up. The […] Read more…

Vancouver Travel Guide and Trip Highlights

We’ve been east and we’ve been south, but until now my husband and I had never traveled to western Canada. (Yes, I realize I left out a cardinal direction, but unless I get invited to Santa’s actual workshop that one isn’t high on my list.) A few months ago, we decided that to celebrate our […] Read more…

Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons and Martyrs’ Shrine – Family Time in Midland

We had a fantastic family road trip to Midland, Ontario yesterday, visiting two important and meaningful tourist attractions: The Martyrs’ Shrine and Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons. Today I’m sharing the highlights with you! MARTYRS’ SHRINE The history in a nutshell: this beautiful church (surrounded by grounds that are just as lovely) was built to honour […] Read more…

Our Visit to the digiPlaySpace

A short time ago, we kicked off our March Break with a super fun visit to the digiPlaySpace at the TIFF Bell Lightbox where my girls had a blast! The digiPlaySpace is designed to stimulate imaginations and inspire a lifelong passion for creativity and invention – and they certainly hit the mark with my daughters! During […] Read more…
