Note to self

If I ever visit the Ontario Science Center again and it is packed out with school groups in the entryway, I will immediately turn around and leave.  It will not improve.

This is not to say that I did not enjoy my time with my sister, nephews and brother in law, but it might have been more fun and a lot easier on the nerves and ears if we had gone to High Park and the Adventure playground instead. 

We did indeed go to High Park after a quick trip to Timmy's, lay in the sunshine, drank mocha, coffee and icecaps respectively alongside a few timbits and it was WONDERFUL....walked home in the beautiful fall weather.

Lovely lovely lovely.  Kids got on brilliantly, and a beautiful day....though my ears felt pressurised, like I'd been flying by the time we left.  Oh the noise.

It was great... although I wish they would apply the corridor of silence technology to the entire building!

on one of your trips to Paris, have you ever been to the Cité des Sciences in La Villette? National preference aside, I think I found it even more interesting than the Ontario Science Center ;)

This beautiful and unusual November weather has been a godsend for your time here. And what’s a visit to Toronto without indulging in all Tim Horton’s has to offer? :)

I have fallen so dreadfully behind on commenting, I'm not even going to try to catch up. We have had an amazingly warm fall, how delightful you got to soak some up. Oh yes, the school buses should have been your first tip off. I barely survived the grade three class I volunteered to go with to our Science Center. I think my ears were bleeding by the time I got home. Timbits - we had a small box this weekend too - the cherry flecked and strawberry filled. Oh my.

Agreed completely, that corridor of silence was the BEST

ElP, on the list for the next trip...hopefully in the Spring.

Beth, it was wonderful weather...and we knew we were lucky!

Kim, Timbits are great aren't they.....the only way this could have been worse is if I had been responsible for one of the school groups.
