  • rebecca: Bouncy pillows specifically ;)
  • rebecca: Day! My kiddos get spooked easily ;)
  • georgina: I'm a fraidy cat as well, so definitely during the daytime with my 2 boys on the hayride, corn maze and the play structure!
  • Gabrielle: the haunted hayride! i was never able to afford tickets so it'd be cool to finally go
  • briana harb: definitely camp slaughter!! the last time i went was years ago and they didn't have it, so it'd be fun to relive old memories and make new ones!!! :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

Created with flickr badge.

Click the photo for details: what it is, where I ate it (if it's worth a mention!) and how to cook it (if there happens to be a recipe). You can also read more about this project right here.
