We decided to visit Marineland with both Ava and Iona – our last outing of the summer. The last time we went we only had Ava. Nothing has changed. The rides are perfect for Iona, and there are a few bigger rides to keep Ava happy.
It has been two years since our first visit to African Lion Safari so we thought it was time to return, since Iona was too young to remember it. Also, given the heat (approximately 35C), the water park they have was sure to be popular with Ava and Iona.
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.
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.
Ava’s highlight of the day at the Ontario Science Centre was when she had the opportunity to walk a tightrope. She was very brave, and had a lot of fun doing it.
