Our weekend was one for the books! With 4 kids, being spontaneous can sometimes blow up in our faces but at the very last minute we decided to rent a cottage and get out of Ottawa for a few nights.
Aside from the challenges of travelling with a 2 year old who is at the crux of his potty-training and terrified he's going to fall into the (enormous) public toilets - things really couldn't have worked out better!
We found a great little cottage near Rice Lake that fit us all very comfortably and had the nicest hosts. We got to hang out with family we haven't seen in a while, try some new local brews and finally have the chance to roast some marshmallows!
