Christmas Holiday in Canada

After the frantic year of HK, New Zealand and now California it was time for a break. We were fortunately able to head over to Ontario in Canada for a family Christmas with my Uncle Bruce and his family. It had been ten years since Veronica and I had been in London, Ontario so it was good to be back, this time in the winter.

Snow games in London

After flying into Toronto on Saturday evening we picked up a rental car and drove down to London ahead of a big snow storm. Snowed all night and we had a nice foot of fresh snow the next morning. Kids loved it and spent hours outside building forts, sledding and making snow men. Dad also had a lot of fun as well 😉 Joy and Matt were also around for a few days so kept the kids occupied. Topped the snow experience off with sleigh ride through a farm out in the country side.

Hadley number 3 Birthday


Birthdays around Christmas are always tough but Curious George made an appearance and we had a fondu party. Thanks to everyone for the great gifts for Hadley. Combined witht eh snowy outdoor fun it was a great third birthday for Hadley.

Christmas Celebrations


Rose and Justin came back from Toronto for Christmas so the kids had more playmates. Stockings all round and the gift exchange worked out really well with a real bias towards a Canadian theme. The food and drink way great and really just like being back in NZ with our own families. Bruce and Barb went all out to make it a great day and fun couple of weeks. Didn’t miss the rest of the family at all 😉

Toronto with Joy and Matt


Spent the last four days of our holiday back in Toronto at Joy and Matt’s flat. Great relaxing time with good food and company. Great to be in a big city, gave us a good reminder of London living. Activities included cleaning out the Roots store, eating breakfast, going past the museum, eating sushi, drinking wine, talking late and eating bagels to name a few things.
