I am lucky. We live in a fantastic neighbourhood. Our house is on a great street with mature trees, beautiful houses and great neighbours and we are a block and a half from the lake. From our house we have a beautiful view of Lake Ontario. When the sun shines, it glistens off the water like diamonds.
Today I decided to take the kids to the beach. We loaded our stuff in the car and picked up a friend and were at the beach within minutes.
