Wow... on the road at 8:00 a.m. this morning, heading up to Orillia, with Gwenny and Kristina in tow! Everyone was all charged up to make the trip. We also had a blast!
Of course we had our, "Welcome back to Ontario" trip across the top of Toronto on the 401... yikes, some things never change. Took us about 4 hours for the average 3 hour trip this morning... more on this later.
While Gwenny and my Mom both look like they just lost their best friends... that was not the case at all. Gwenny didn't want to sit on knees and pose for pictures today, so the best I could get was above... She was still in a great mood though... even after the long Jeep ride. Yes, my Mom turns 90 this August! She is doing very well!
We headed down to the Swiss Chalet in Orillia for lunch. This is by far my Mom's favourite Restaurant to go to... great chicken dinners here all the time. Gwenny was right into the crayons and colouring papers they gave her as we came in the door.
Gwenny spends a lot of time people watching in Restaurants! EVERYBODY in the Restaurant loves Gwenny of course, and most come by just to say "Hello"...
After lunch Gwenny had to blow off some stored up energy, so we stopped by the Park in Orillia... right beside Lake Couchiching. Say that three times quickly! The City of Orillia has done a fantastic job on this Park, and it is well used.
There is no slide Gwenny does not like!
Now here is 4 Generations of Family for you! Mom lives in the apartments right behind.
Had a great day!
Made it back to Woodstock in 2 hours... how did we do that! We did not fly... instead, we used the Highway 407 which is a toll highway... probably about $20.00 for a 16 minute drive on this highway... however it saved maybe 1 1/2 hours of travel time on the way home! You decide!
