Summertime in Ontario

Ahhh summer.  I’ve just returned from a family vacation to my hometown of Kanata, Ontario (just outside Ottawa).  While my wonderful husband slaved away in North Vancouver putting down some shiny new wood floors in 30 degree heat, I got to give our kids a taste of summer in Ontario.  We went strawberry picking with cousins, spent mornings splashing in my oldest friend’s backyard pool, ate all our meals on my parent’s back deck, and even got to spend an amazing weekend at a cottage in Muskoka.

Everywhere we went, we were surrounded by fields.  Gorgeous fields full of wildflowers, farmers’ crops, aging barns, and sometimes cows & horses (much to my urban kids’ excitement)!  I have to wonder if Ontario photographers know how good they have it?  Us North Vancouver photographers search high and low for a field, ANY field, and here I was surrounded.  I was reeeeeally hoping to take my kids out one night so I could play!  Sunset is late this time of year, but one night near the end of our trip they were too hopped-up on ice-cream sandwiches to even consider a normal bedtime, so  off we went.

Sass was much more interested in the flowers than Benny, so she and I ran around while he found a fun spot to play with my brother’s old (vintage? ha!) Tonka truck.  Would you believe these were taken in a field next to one of those huge shopping areas full of big-box stores?  Yep, right beside the car dealership!  I can’t end this post without mentioning that yes, the mosquitos ate us alive, BUT it was totally worth it.  So, some pics of Ontario, keepin’ it beautful 😉
