Going Home

Well I am driving the boys home today -  after 3 days of museums, parks and adventures.

But I must be getting old - by the time we got home yesterday - after 3 museums and a trip to Lake Ontario Park - I was exhausted!!  Kids never seem to run out of energy!!  But I like to think it was a good 3 days - the weather cooperated and we went from one busy day to the next.  My favourite word this week - "awesome".

We did the fort in the heat of the summer sun where the boys got to try out the school room ....................... 



We did Murney Tower where the boys got to dress up like soldiers from the 1800's ............



We did the Pump House Museum where the boys got to see how machines work, learned how to make a water purifier and  silly putty.............



 and we went to the Penitentiary Museum where they got to see things like punishments that were used on prisoners in the 1800's right up to a replica of a current day cell ........

 

then we finished up at Lake Ontario Park where the ducks were so tame they walked over to say "hello" and the boys had good fun skipping stones into the lake............ 


All in all it was a fun week!!
