Bye bye summer..


As the temperature starts to dip into the early early twenties and teens we have to face it, summer is almost gone! It is going to be sad farewell...but it is a cycle and we have to accept it....Fall is not a bad season...so we are not shedding any tears yet...autumn does have it own fun and spirit...


We did have a great summer with great memories...we did a lot with the kids...from trips to amusement parks in the area....walks to a local park with friends, bbquing at the park with friends and family, going to the many beaches in the area...


Summer in Ontario sure beats summer anywhere else(saskatoon uggh)....there are so many things we did not scratch off our list, we didn't even have time to get away...this is the first summer we do not go on a vacation out of the country or at least out of the province...but we manage to have a fun filled summer full of action...


My sister is on maternity leave so we got to take the kids places sans husbands....which was fun...


I took the kids to Toronto to see the CN tower...ziad is now obsessed with Toronto and the CN tower...we parked our car at the GO station and took to the bus to Toronto...we had walked around, had lunch and finally went to the tower...we had to wait for 1.5hr to get up! It was Monday for god's sake! I can not even imagine how it would have been if we went on the weekend...but we could not turn back, Ziad would not hear of it....thankfully in the line just in front of there were three Egyptian guys and they kept the kids entertained and chased after bilal when he decided it will be funny to run off...


The kids favourite place to go to was Niagara Falls and Marine Land...we got a seasons pass and we went few times with friend and other times just the four of us...I could not go on any of the rides...I did not want to risk harming the little guy inside of me....but the kids loved it there...they enjoyed the whales and dolphins shows...petting and feeding the deer ....it was great fun!


There are few things we wanted to do still before the weather gets colder...but with Ramadan hubby is useless....I feel bad about next summer, the kids will miss out on a lot of fun things to do! I wish Ramadan had a set month and that month was a winter month...but o well...we will manage to make it a fun summer inshallah....


So goodbye summer...you were a good summer this year..we will miss you...! Lets hope this winter will be not be a snow and storms filled winter....especially around the mid January...

my summer started off with tons of fun and travel and excitement and then.... left me stuck working 16 hour days in a lab for 2 months. I hate this summer, I'm glad it's over.
Winter is easier to deal with.. at least other people aren't outside having fun while I'm stuck in a windowless hell.

Ok, sorry...just had to let that out :) Glad you had a fun summer and hope your winter is not too cold!
