July : what you might have missed

There's a lot going on in our fabulous city and Kids in the Capital has been hopping! In case you missed any of our fabulous posts this past month, here's a recap! Summer of Awesome

Lynn is having an amazing summer and telling us all about it.  She's been to Cosmic Adventures, Papanack Zoo, AMC Movie Tuesdays and Ray's Reptiles already and has been sharing everything she's learned! We can't wait to hear where she's going next!

Summer posts

Has this not been the nicest summer you can remember in eons?  So many fun summer things to do!  Vicky went to the cottage and brought back some great tips on cottaging with kids, told us about the ice cream truck and strawberry picking.  Sara told us about her backyard garden , did a great Canada day craft, and checked out some Dragonboats.   We  also touched some trucks , found out about some of the great summer camp options at Dovercourt and heard about summer park programs.

On a more serious note, we also covered some water safety tips. Please please be safe near water this summer.


If you're heading out of town, think about taking a ferry, checking out Smiths Falls or spending the day at Storyland.


Liisa told us about a very sometimes treat - poutine! And Vicky gave us some breakfasting with kids tips and some information on Gabriel's in Orleans. We also checked out Kid Kaf which is a cafe but also a great place to let your kids run around and burn off energy, in a safe environment.


We made butter, lemonade and tofu cookies with Brie (my you've been busy in the kitchen this summer ;)


Kari told us about a smorgasbord of festivals, several of which have now passed but are worth keeping an eye open for next year.  And we found out all about the Lumiere Festival which is coming up this September but has lots of mini activities in August leading up to it.


The ABC Challenge ended this month, but some are continuing on with new challenges in the flickr group - come join in! We also featured our ABC photos at Blog Out Loud, which was an amazing amazing event put together by one of our wonderful contributors - Lynn.

Getting together

We have been having weekly weekday playdates all summer long and we'd love if you could join us in the future.  We also have monthly (or so) evening adult meetups - keep your eyes open for the next one!

Not to mention

And we can't forget the review of a great stroller, the fabulous benefits of yoga for kids, and our wonderful new sponsor Nayla Natural Care (please go visit her and tell her we sent ya ;).

Have a great August, and in case you never filled it out, it's not too late to complete our survey.  And we're always looking for guest posts on the things you love to do with kids - drop us a line! kidsinthecapital@gmail.com
