Well, less than two weeks to school starting here and I am on a mission. We’ve had a fabulous summer of fun activities like the excellent Great Wolf Lodge weekend on Canada Day. Many thanks to Lay’s Chip Trips and Mom Central Canada. As a Trip Advisor, I have seen a lot of fun Ontario sites and enjoyed a few deep discounts. All that for the price of a few bags of chips. If you still don’t know what I am talking about then visit http://tinycc/7hud0. Sign up for chip trips or cash some points in for vouchers to gain free admission or buy one get one free or whatever the deal may be. And now as the short summer days draw to a close, I feel the need to cram in as many excellent chip trips as I am able. So what’s left in Ontario? Well, there’s Plunge!, the amazing aquatic centre in Collingwood and there’s $5 off Ontario Place. There’s Wings of Paradise near Cambridge and African Lion Safari, also near Cambridge. There’s Laserquest too. There’s 50 per cent off one daily vehicle permit at various Ontario Parks and buy one get one free admission at Santa’s Village in Bracebridge. So stay tuned and see Mommy run for her life the last two weeks of having my family home with me before the end of summer. I am half joking and half serious here. I love having my dollies around, even when it is hard to keep such busy girls entertained and engaged and learning. I love being surrounded by my family, and while I am always happy for my kids to be going back to school and learning, growing, blossoming, socializing – summer is a happy time to reconnect, have fun, explore and kick back. That’s what we’ve been doing. The entire month of August has been devoted to having fun together here in London and out and about in Ontario. So for the next two weeks I will be telling you how we spend our chip trip points. I challenge you to leave me your comments and tell me how you will spend your chip trip points.. For today….Wings of Paradise here we come. BTW, remember the program is one until December 31st. Check individual offers and venues for details of expiry.
