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.

So it was an EXciting Excibition?! I had to make this joke…sorry… 😛
I love your pictures! What was Your ultimate favorite thing about this exhibition? The gluten free nachos? 😛
What is a "food unicorn" if you do not mind me asking?
I looked at all the pictures again so I can pick a favorite… It would be the one with the kids sitting in that light green car that says: Dollar General. I wanted to be specific. 🙂
Thank you, Eszter http://kukolina.wordpress.com

haha! Someone had to make it! 🙂 My favorite thing my far was watching the kids on the rides, soo amazing. I called it the food unicorn because a unicorn is mythical, unseen and bascally a legend. Healthy food at a fair? Also pretty mythical and unseen.

They are so happy with so little, so if you give this kind of highs is really great to see their faces. Here begin the festivities Sunday, fun fairs and am excited to see their happy faces. Kisses and happy last Wednesday morning Friday.

How right your are about the uniqueness of the health food… I did not think about it that way! 🙂
