#1 – Go camping

Our first day at Killbear, we were out on the rocks, and Adam said “how amazing is it to be here with Henry?”.  And it really was.  I grew up at Killbear, and it holds so many memories and is so familiar.  It was a really crazy mind warp having my baby there and though he isn’t old enough to have memories of it, it was so cool to start what is hopefully a long term family tradition.  To make it extra special, my brothers and Sam came up for the last few days.  My brothers and I haven’t been on vacation together for 15 years (the last time we were at Killbear as a family), so that was amazing to have them there with us.

That all being said, it was also a challenging week.  Henry cut teeth and went through a growth spurt and was really unsettled being out of his space and routine.  Renting the tent trailer was definitely key to getting through the week, and the little red wagon was our top piece of equipment.  He loved it, and he was happy to be strapped in with some toys to play with while we made meals, tidied around camp, etc.

Check out more photos of our sandcastle attempts, canoeing, and swimming in Georgian Bay.

#68 – Take Henry lake swimming

The swimming at Killbear is amazing; on Georgian Bay, the water is clear, always refreshing (but not too cold), and has a mix of sandy and rock bottoms.  Henry was a big fan of the water!

#22 – Build a sandcastle

I mean, I guess to be accurate this one is attempt to build a sandcastle before a speedy little destruct-o races across the sand to flatten the towers, but I think it still counts.

#91 – Play old school arcade games

Part of our weekend road trip was a stop at the Georgian Grill Restaurant and Arcade, which has been on Balm Beach since 1934.  Full of arcade games, mostly classics, it was a fun pit stop.
