Time for a little “Cosmic Adventure”…

This morning we met up with Jenn’s Mom, Andrea, who is staying in Ottawa for a few days, and we decided to take the kids over to catch a little “Cosmic Adventure” in Ottawa.  Shawn and Jenn both had to work today, so the Grand Parents were in charge… that is a good thing if you are a kid!

Cosmic Adventure is an overgrown playground for kids… What a setup!  It is three storey high, and as you can see, full of ladders, ropes, swings, slides, just about anything you can think of…

Little Paige just loves climbing up all the things, and sliding back down… she could do this all day!

There are space tubes, and everything…

This big old slide was a hit below…


There was quite a few kids out today, but the place is BIG!



Andrea is covering Emmie in balls below… kids loves this stuff…


Emmie was caught playing in the tree house… We spent a few hours playing, and enjoyed a nice lunch right on the premises.  They never had anything like this when I was a kid.


Of course, this evening was Halloween, so first to get on a costume was Super Dexter!  Somehow our camera developed a big black spot 1/2 way through the day today… go figure… I tried and tried to get it off… turned out to be some kind of dirt on the inside of the camera I think????  It is gone now, but messed up a bunch of our pictures…


Paige was dressed up as Tinker Bell…


Emmie was dressed up as Snow White… they were all set to go!


Here is the whole Hollinger Gang.   It was a perfect night here for trick or treating.  A good time was had by all.  We even had the nerve to enter some haunted houses along the way.  Some people went a little over board with the decorations, it was great!


It was hard to say goodbye to everyone at the end of the night.  We hit the road tomorrow morning bright and early for the South West U.S.A. 

Should be good weather tomorrow for driving. 

Not sure where we will end up tomorrow, however,

Till tomorrow…


  1. That play area is just fantastic. What a hoot! Don't you just love seeing the little kids all dressed up and having a ball? The little girls, and the furkid, look adorable. Travel safe tomorrow.

  2. the ball area reminds of the Big Bang Theory and Sheldon playing in the balls..BAZINGZA!! funny!!
    happy halloween to you and your family!..the kids look cute!!!

  3. That Super Dexter costume made me laugh out loud! Love it!

  4. What a nice way to spend your last day with the Grandkids before your trip south. Cosmic Adventure looks exciting for the little ones. Some happy looking trick or treaters along with Super Dexter. Hope you and Judy have safe travels south.
