The Erie Canal and Lockport Cave

The Erie Canal and Lockport Cave

Located about forty minutes from Buffalo and twenty minutes from Niagara Falls U.S.A, lies the Lockport Cave and Erie Canal Cruises. With baby and toddler along, the hubs and […]

During our visit to Niagara U.S.A we took a bit of a turn and explored the Lewiston area of New York which is how we ended up eating out with baby at Carmelo’s. We were hosted by Niagara U.S.A so we had high expectations for our dinner here on a Saturday evening. As usual we arrived […]

Crawford Lake, Ontario with Baby

Crawford Lake, Ontario with Baby

Less than an hour from downtown Toronto lies a meromictic lake surrounded by a boardwalk and a 15th century reconstructed Iroquoian village. The Iroquoian Village was how we came upon the lake actually. We explored Ontario’s […]

Eating Out With Baby | Earth to Table Bread Bar

A couple weeks ago we dined out with our baby and toddler at Hamilton’s Earth to Table: Bread Bar. This was one of the spots we managed to squeeze in during our #MurphysDoON travels with Heart of Ontario. We swung by for lunch and wasn’t sure if the wait would be crazy given that they don’t accept […]

The Giacomo Hotel Niagara Falls, U.S.A

We spent last weekend at The Giacomo Hotel in Niagara Falls, U.S.A and one thing for sure… we’ll have to go back. Why? Because Little Monkey has already put in a request and it is now her favourite hotel. There’s no kiddy stuff here but she loved it! Watch the end of the video and […]

Highlights of a Cape Breton Drive with Kids

Highlights of a Cape Breton Drive with Kids

This summer we spent a couple weeks exploring Nova Scotia and one of the highlights was most definitely our Cape Breton drive with the kids. The Cabot Trail, named after John Cabbot who landed in Atlantic Canada in 1479, is a stunning drive with plenty to see, do and marvel at but it’s not the only […]
