A Main Street Christmas

Another successful Main Street Christmas in Schomberg. Ava and Iona always enjoy the day. The two parades are fun.



Time again for our somewhat annual trip to Centreville on Centre Island.  It was nice this year that both Ava and Iona got to go on the rides together.  No need for Mom or Dad to ride the Teacups anymore. Yeah!

It was a perfect day – not too hot, or too cool.  Crowds were very light, so there were hardly any lines to wait in.  We went to Amsterdam Brewhouse for dinner afterwards, where Ava lost her first upper-middle tooth.  She was a bit upset about it.

Ontario Science Centre

Since we had a day off, and Iona was going to be at preschool I thought I would take Ava to the Ontario Science Centre for the day.  I can’t remember when I was last there – I don’t have many memories of it.  The good news is that Ava had a blast, and I had a lot of fun as well.  Will definitely go back when Iona is a bit older.

Ava really enjoyed both the tightrope walking and Van de Graaff generator.  She also really liked the fossils and mammoth display.
