JANUARY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (January 13- 14, 2018)

JANUARY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (January 13- 14, 2018)

I hope everyone had a nice winter break, surviving the cold!

We had a pretty low key  holiday break. We visited Santa at Bass Pro Mills at Vaughan Mills Mall, had my awesome New Years Party at The WreckRoom, and took the kids to the spa!

The last three nights of the Holiday Break, we headed over to Deerhurst Resort. This is our 4th Winter Break heading to Deerhurst. It has become a tradition and my kids really look forward to it.

Here is a VIDEO of our week 🙂
