Hi, lovelies! Well, we ended up going with an indoor option today as there were severe thunderstorm warnings in the region all day. Read on to see where we went!
These beauty’s had a a packet of Amazing Grass Green Super Food blended into them as well as some chopped up strawberries. I spread each pancake with some Crofter’s super fruit jam and then sprinkled them with walnut pieces….
Here’s a close up of the jam I used which was awesome, by the way!
After packing up some lunches and taking a much needed shower, we were off to our destination; Casa Loma. Casa Loma is in T.O. (most everything is in T.O.!) and I’d never been before. We weren’t sure if the kid’s would enjoy it as it’s mainly a tour of the caslte, but we had tickets that came with our Toronto City Pass and, most importantly, the bulk of stuff to see was inside. It turned out to be a way cool joint! Here are some shots of the place…
If you look to the top of the next photo, you can just make out the CN Tower. I would imagine that it would be a very clear view on a bright day.
The one of the kids at the top was taken in one of the horse stables. Pretty nice, eh? I did end up pouring so we didn’t get to see as much of the grounds as we would’ve liked, but as we were leaving the kids told us that they thought the castle was very cool and they were glad we went. Mission accomplished!
Traffic going in to the city was great, but coming home was a snails pace again. A 1hr ride turned into 2. Blah. By the time we got back to town it was after 6 and the kids were apparently dying of starvation even though we ate our snacks upon leaving. I tried out a Kashi Pumpkin Pie bar;
This bar was just meh. I felt like I was straining to taste the pumpkin pie flavour. It won’t kill me to finish the box but I won’t buy this flavour again.
Back to how I starve my kids…DS had his player of the game get a free kids meal coupon from soccer so we hit up the specified for some grub. The place is called Shoeless Joe’s and it turned out to be pretty darn good! We started with some “feta bruschetta”
It was actually much bigger than the pictures lets on! My hubby helped out with the fries and I didn’t eat all the foccacia, but I came darn close. Although some of the desserts looked extremely tempting, I was just too full and decided to wait until later on for some froyo at home.
And that’s where I’m at now, folks! I have a phone call to make when I’m done here and then I’ll be settling in with some maple walnut goodness. The rain has long stopped, but the air is still pretty heavy so I think this will be a great cooling treat! Tomorrow is suppose to be gorgeous so we have plans to head to T.O. once again. Check back in 24 to see where we ended up!
Bye for now!!
