...and the Yukon Built t-shirts we got on our road trip this summer.
Our two new favourite outdoor activities: Ice skating and bike riding. These were both new skills for our kids this year and we took advantage of that!
Our favourite place to go: We LOVED our road trip to the Yukon (to visit friends) and Alaska. It was so much fun to drive through northern Canada and see our friends.
Our favourite at home moments: We loved hanging out in our backyard, especially with our new table. We spent a lot of time reading, visiting, playing games, colouring, and eating at this table.
My and Dave's favourite kid milestone of the year: The kids have been mostly making their own lunches since the start of school in September. This is HUGE!!! (Even if I have no pictures of it.)
Sam's absolute favourite moment: My dad taught Sam to drive his truck this summer. Sam keeps, optimistically, asking us when he can drive again. PS. He's only 10 so this is a bit unusual :)
Our favourite more "local" things we did: We enjoyed a whole day at the Blue Jays' WinterFest, where Dave got to experience a "bucket list" moment. You can read more about WinterFest here and here. We also spent a day exploring the Distillery District and other unique spots in Toronto. You can read about that day here and here.
Our new favourite thing to do in our city: We love taking the ION, our new light rail transit. We try to take it as much as we can.
Our favourite pool thing to do: The pool we belong to introduced an "Aqua Fun" hour right after lunch. This was a HUGE hit, especially with Rachel, and especially when they did swim team.
Our favourite Canadian Moment: The Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship!!! We are not normally huge basketball fans but this was such a fun time! There is an area outside the Raptors' arena where fans gather to watch the game on a big screen. It's called Jurassic Park. When the Raptors' were in the finals, many cities across Canada set up local Jurassic Parks so we even watched one of the games at the Jurassic Park in our public square.
I think this captures some of our favourite things from 2019. It was a good year!
Once again, I'm linking up with Kim and Tanya at GirlXOXO (link here) and T of Traveling With T (link here) for #AMonthofFaves.
