When daddy is off work...

What do we do when daddy is on vacations?

.....Well, having V_ home was nice, the boys and I enjoyed him 100%. We were planning to go camping for a few days, but I hurt my finger and we were worried it was going to get infected with the sand and dirt from the campsite. Instead, we decided to do day trips to different places.

FIRST, We visited Omega Park:

Then, we went to a canoe trip and fishing:

Then to a beach and a beautiful hike!!:

Then we went to the zoo and a water park:

An other day we stayed home , we went to Ottawa. And last but not least, we closed our holidays with Arbraska.... the zip lines and tree top hike.

Our big adventure!

40 feet high and a bit more than 2 football fields long. That is how big was the zip line we went on!. At first I was really scared, until I did it a couple of times before I knew how to do it and get the courage to jump. The hardest thing was seeing my two kids doing it !!! They had to hook themselves to the zip line, jump and unhook and hook again to the next tree. VERY SCARY!!. They were not as scared as we were for them. M_ would go first, V_ was second to ensure son M was hooked properly and receive son S_. I was last so I could help son S_ to hook properly before jumping, then I would go for the next jump.
I am glad I tried.. even though I thought I was not going to be able to do it after the first try, I really wanted to get down.. but I decided to try just once more... the bridges were no as scary as the zip lines.. and it was because I had to jump and trust that the pulley was going to be strong enough to hold my weight.
It was fun... I will do this again!!.

This happened to our cricket

The boys caught some crickets to feed their gecko, and what a surprise, we found a new cricket in the container!!. It shed its skin!!! This video shows how it happens :


Where did we go on Saturday?... yes. The Nascar races!!!. Even I felt some testosterone running through my veins!!. The noise was incredible, the smell of gasoline and the place was very cool. and... we were sitting in the first row!!. Not something I would do every weekend, but it was worth the experience.

The weather did not cooperate too much, it was raining half way through the races (a lot), thankfully, we did not pay for the tickets. They were a gift from V's work, so when we decided to leave because of the rain it was not as painful as if we had payed for them.

The kids LOVED IT!!. Even with the ear plugs, they were covering their ears. And to my American friends... sorry, but two Canadians won first and second place ;-)
