Vacation - and a Heat Wave!

I've been on vacation with the kids this week - perfect time for a crazy heatwave to show up!

For our non-metric friends, that's 99F and feels like 120F. OMG.
So - how are we beating the heat?

We headed to the movies twice:

Hit the Science Centre:
Goofing around at the reptile exhibit
 Went to my mom's for a couple of days, where we soaked up some history at Saint-Marie Among the Hurons:

...met a ton of animals at a wildlife rehabilitation centre - bear, cougar, wolves, moose, ravens, owls, bald eagles and more:

Clover the Groundhog
Creeping up on a chipmunk
...and went to the beach a couple of times. Oh boy did we go to the beach!

 And the splashpad:

And the park - where a really cool new dizzy-go-round has been installed:

Oh yes - and I managed to hit the gym two times - only two - I ended up with the flu one day :-(

Lesson learned - don't chug a full bottle of water after a workout and then go out in weather this hot. It will give you a stomach ache and make you look like this:

My daughter, on the other hand, is smart enough to SIP her water
