Another outing today...This time to the Centre de la nature in Laval which we've never gone to before. Went there with Chris and family. Wow, this is a pretty big spot. They've got a farm, a greenhouse, lake, areas to picnic, an awesome park for big and little kids, train ride etc. And since this was Family Day everything was free!
Good thing we arrived early as parking filled up fast. When we left at 1 pm, parking was on the side of any and all roads!
When Keira saw all the air-filled balloon structures, she went nuts! Couldn't decide which ones to go on first. Then she ran from one side of the park area to the other. Ai carumba! The only caveat: she's afraid of sliding. She can climb til there's no tomorrow but can't make it past the slide hump. The staff always have to slide down with her. Lol!
We brought our own picnic lunch (who wants to pay for hot dogs?!) and had a great time. We even got to go on the train ride! Geez, how corny but so much fun. Was it ever hard to get the kids off at the end.
I love watching these kids play together. Although, I must admit..Keira is an independant kid. She'll go where she wants to go and won't wait for anyone. Including us! If she catches a glimpse of us somewhere, she's fine. Sadly, we will have to teach her to pay attention and not trust every single adult/kid out there.
This was a great day to get her pooped out for bed! Well, 2 episodes of the Wiggles, 1 episode of Thomas the Train and then bed!
