Not my ex, or Chris’ ex (we don’t really have those) – but The Ex. It’s probably like a fair if you live elsewhere, but when the Canadian National Exhibition hits Toronto, it’s called The Ex. It was our first time taking the kids, actually Chris and I haven’t been for about 8 years or so. It pretty much blew the kids minds, they were jumping-up-and-down stuttering their words, excited. And that was just from setting their eyes on the place, once they got to the rides? My goodness the happiness on their faces and the sequels of joy, Chris and I ate those moments right up – we pretty much live for their happiness. Instead of going early in the morning like we usually would, we risked it and went around our usual dinner time (think, seniors hours). We wanted the kids to have a chance to see the lights on all the rides as the sun went down – the nighttime is such an exciting time for them, because they rarely ever get to see the world by moonlight. I was even able to find the fair food unicorn, good healthy food at Wild Child’s Kitchen – vegan and mostly gluten free, I will be dreaming about their nachos for weeks to come (I have a post half written about this, what probably sounds like a new diet). It was a great (and perfectly overcast) day/evening, totally worth the crowds and all the blown dollars.
*I meant to post this yesterday, but Monday really took a toll on me – I was rendered almost totally useless under her spell. Also I wanted to take a quick moment to say a huge thank you and a big “wow you all made me feel so not alone,” for your words and comments on this post.
