Below are some pics from our day trip to Center Ville on Center Island in Toronto a couple of weeks ago. I haven't been to Center Island since I was little and love all that it has to offer, especially for our girls at their age. I lived downtown Toronto for a year, many years ago and loved taking the ferry to the islands on the weekends in the spring, summer and fall months to escape the concreteness of our city. It was so nice to have that little oasis so close to the city. We loved it so much, we plan to go again next week, while it is still open.
We were greeted by beautiful gardens that attracted gorgeous monarch butterflies, a sure sign that fall is close by.
Both girls really enjoyed a rest by the water while daddy waited in line for tickets to the rides.

This brave little goose towered over Madison and was getting quite aggressive with her that I had to have some words with it to persuade it to leave her alone.

What a gorgeous city view!
