How I Spent My Summer Vacation

When my 15-year-old cousin Jaymee asked if he could come for a visit from Wales this summer, we said absolutely…and began planning our activities weeks in advance! Purely for his enjoyment, of course. :) I felt such a responsibility to show him everything I could during his first trip to Canada!

We took it easy on him as he adjusted to his jet lag, doing some shopping at the Eaton Centre, visiting with friends, and walking the dogs.  The dogs are always game for a day in the off-leash park at Cherry Beach, where they like to get as dirty as possible!

Knowing that we wanted to see a few of the local major attractions, we bought the Toronto City Pass and headed down to Ripley’s Aquarium. I hadn’t been there before, and it surpassed all my expectations! Jaymee’s too, I think.
