The Canadian Canoe Museum and Beavermead Park

 Yesterday we made a little trip into Peterborough to the Canadian Canoe Museum. There was a free Maker's event going on, so we thought it would be worth the half hour drive. I love this museum. It is very well curated- interesting and well set up! Definitely recommended! After a few hours at the museum we went to Beavermead Park. It's a beautiful park on the Trent-Severn with the Trans-Canada Trail running right through it. We are thankful there are so many great places to be outside close to us. With no yard we are constantly looking for places to hang out- and we are happy we found another great spot!

Loved the display on "Canoedling". Especially the part where
 the man paddles and the woman sits with a parasol

Make your own HBC blanket pouches!

After a quick dip in the splash pad. She didn't like it one bit! 
Caught this picture just before a spit-up disaster (literally- check out Brynn's mouth!)
James tried to dip Brynn's feet in the lake- she started screaming before she even got close to the water.
Hopefully she'll grow out of hating the water?
Beautiful fields whizzing by on the way home. We love summer!
