pedalling around dows lake

pedal boats on dows lake

Today was a Civic Holiday in Ontario.

We met our good friends Mike, Julia and their two adorable little men, Zachy & Patrick for breakfast at Cora's. It was a fun morning and a delicious breakfast, yummy! We'll have to do that more often! Unfortunately I have no pictures to prove it, but they do! You can read all about it and enjoy Mike's very entertaining story on their family blog!

After breakfast we headed to Dows Lake. We promised Lilah some fun in the pedal boats this summer, especially since we didn't get around to it last year. It's crqzy where the time goes, but it's been almost two years since we were last out in them together! She was hyped about it, while in the line-up she was jumping up and down, hanging onto my legs singing: "I'm so excited, I'm so excited, I'm so excited...!" We had a really super time, ...ahem, chasing ducks, splashing our feet in the water and banging into buoys! What can I say, we aren't the best drivers in the world! Heh!

We finished off our day with supper in one of the restaurants on the Dows Lake Pavilion and Lilah got a few of her absolute favourite, garlic 'shrimpies'!


  1. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun out there. We'll have to try it out some time. :)

  2. Looks like such a fun day. Great photos, as always. Lilah looks so cute in her hat, and I love how excited she was to go in the paddle boats.

  3. I am stuck at the garlic shrimpies! Is that wrong?? Such great pictures of an awesome day! You guys always have the best fun!

  4. I love Ottawa... maybe I need to move there... so much to do!

    We have Cora's here too and it is a favourite breakfast spot for our family as well!

  5. awww so fun! Lilah looks adorable and the shrimp has me ready for lunch! yum!
