Home again

Posted by andrea in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Misc. life

Edited to add:

I was going to make up a game of car bingo before we left but I ran out of time. I think the girls are still too little for it anyway. Instead, I created a list of things to look out for. (This was hard enough!)

The first thing they found? The dead skunk. But we never did find a red barn.


… more to share later. :)

We were camping! I am exhausted.

But first…

A big thank you to Marla and Dani for holding down the fort while I was gone.

*gives enthusiastic noogies all around*

I still have to read through all your posts. I tried reading them earlier, in fact, it was the first thing I wanted to do upon arrival, but Mark kept on saying things like “there are PERISHABLES in the COOLER!” and “THIS STUFF IS HEAVY.” So I had to make haste.

I hope to get back here after I shower and de-spider my dirty clothing. I need to do some serious catching up. :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. 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.
