There are a lot of scams going around out there.. bad people taking money from kind, innocent people.

Well, I just come to the realization that I was duped out of some cash last night.

Here's what happened:

I went to Costco last night (Wednesday Sept 12) to get some quick items. I had baby Evan with me and I had a short amount of time to get in and out before I had to get on the road to pick up Ericka at daycare.
As I was pulling into the parking lot and looking for a spot, I noticed a man talking to a lady in the middle of the lane way in her car. I didn't think anything of it. I pulled into my spot (mommy parking spot for the win!) and got out of the car to the other side of the car to get Evan.  As I open the door, the man who was talking to the lady in her car was magically behind me. He says, "Hi miss. Do you have any spare cash to spare. My car needs a tow and I'm trying to bum money off people here to get a tow truck. I've got about $35 dollars and I've been stuck here for 3 hours."

Western Fair!!!

It has been ages.. probably 2 decades since I've last visited London's Western Fair.
You know, I don't really remember much about my past visits... Maybe I've never been at all? Lol No, I have been. Maybe the lack of sleep (mommy brain) is preventing me from remembering the last time I was at the fair, but I do know for a fact that it's "been awhile".

So when the opportunity to check out the fair this year came around, it was hard to pass it up.
Now that Ericka is older, the idea of maneuvering her and Evan in strollers through the crowds made it worth the visit because at least she is old enough to understand what she is seeing and enjoy some of the displays.

Good-bye Summer 2012

Well, it's been one heck of a summer to remember!

From continuous hot & humid days to our first family getaway...this summer has been an absolute blast! I picked a good summer to take a mat leave eh?

This past Labour Day weekend capped summer off with more beautiful weather and a great time spending it with the family, that I'm pretty sad summer is coming to an end. Soon, my hubby will be hard at work as this is a pretty busy time of the year with sports locally and nationally that he covers. That'll mean no more vacation weeks off and no weekend fun as he's commited a few of them for work events. Ho-hum.

So, this past weekend, we made sure to make the most out of this long weekend together as we took a trip to the beach again.. This time Ipperwash Beach along Lake Huron. What a beauty of a place. We had the ultimate blast. The drive was worth it!
Beautiful Ipperwash Beach
No pics of Evan in the water, but he loves playing in it.. just like his sister
