“You’d think we were going to Disneyland,” I thought after T got super excited when I told him we were visiting a different park last Sunday.
Like everyone, we’re all feeling so restless about these “Which window am I going to look out of today?” days.
So a change of scenery, even if it was just a few steps further down the street was so welcomed.
There was a giant hill that T enjoyed running up and down over and over again.
We stood at the top and enjoyed the setting sun. It was such a nice relaxing end to our weekend.
This Saturday, we ventured out even further and spent a nice afternoon out in nature and sunshine at Darlington Provincial Park.
We could almost feel Spring in the air.
The park was only a 30 minute drive from home but felt like a nice escape from the City.
We enjoyed standing at the windy beach and listening to the calming sound of waves.
T did what T loved to do most; pick up rocks and throw them into the water.
He got lost in the moment at one point and stepped too close into the water. A wave splashed icy cold water into his rain boots. Oops.
We then did a short hike in a trail, which took us to an empty amphitheater.
T played around at the fire pit, pretending to build a fire, while I walked up and down the wooden benches, lost in the moment of the loud waves nearby.
As the sun set, we headed home, stopping by McDonald’s to pick up a Happy Meal for T – while the hubby and I had shawarma takeout.
Today was a very relaxing day and our family really needed this after the last two months.
It made me even more excited for more outdoor fun this summer!
