Today I took Jacob and one of his school friends for a day of fun at Canada’s Wonderland. Most of the day was spent at the water park, but with Jacob measuring above 54 inches we had to make a stop at the DropZone a ride he’s wanted to go on all summer, but had never been quite tall enough.

Today we headed down to the Canadian National Exhibition. It’s a bitter-sweet tradition for our family. It’s sweet because we always have fun, and today was no exception. Even with the rainy weather we all had a blast. It’s better because it also means that summer is coming to an end. It of course was also a long day, so even though I took a ton of pictures, I thought this one of the lit up ferris wheel would be a great way to capture the day.
Last night we had a small water balloon fight, the kids loved it. So today before dinner we filled up another batch of water balloons and the water guns and had at it. The kids loved it and so did I. I had fotgoten how much fun water fights could be. I don’t think that will be our last water fight this summer.
Vacation is over. This morning we left the resort and headed to the airport to return to Toronto. I think these two pictures we took from the plan capture the differences perfectly. The left was taken as we left Mexico, the right as we arrived at Toronto. Even with all the snow and freezing temperatures I’m glad to be home with the kids. a week is a long time to be away from the little ones. Thanks Lynn and Dan for taking such good care of them while we recharged in Mexico.
