Morning at the ROM

Monday, April 28, 2014

This weekend Mark and I took the kids to the ROM. Even though it will be 18 years this year that I've lived in Toronto, I've never actually been there, so I was looking forward to the visit. I mostly wanted to take the kids to see the dinosaurs and check out the Crystal (funny enough just as I was writing this, this popped up from BlogTO on my FB feed....I don't think it's that ugly ;)).

The really funny thing is that half way through the visit I turned to Mark and said: "Where is all the wood? You know the curvy wood structure I wanted to see?" He says: "Are you talking about the AGO??" Oops. So it turns out that's where I really wanted to go but oh well. It was a fun day regardless.

We took the subway there too of course which was even more exciting for the kids. On the way out of the train at one point, Mila's little boot fell off between the platform and the train and Mark decided to get down on his stomach and use our golf umbrella to get it. It was quite the little spectacle! I was stressing, but also thankful because I really like those boots ;).

I always forget how pretty certain parts of the city are until I visit them again. On our way back to the subway I took a couple shots of One Bedford and The Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music. I loved what One Bedford has done to its main entrance and the Conservatory is just breathtaking.

I really need to go on more adventures around the city!

What were you up to this weekend?


  1. I love the ROM and I love the Crystal! We went a few weeks ago and kids loved it.

    1. Honestly I do really like the juxtaposition of the two buildings - it's interesting to look at!

  2. I am a little bit jealous about your adventure… except for the subway part :) So glad you had a wonderful day trip with your kids. You will never regret taking the time and effort to do those sorts of things with them.

  3. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I haven't been there myself since I was a kid, but now I'm curious to check it out again.

  4. Say yes to new adventures! Looks like you had a nice time too!

  5. Funny about the AGO mixup - that's the kind of thing I would do! Sounds like a fun outing, I'm sure the kids loved it.

  6. It's funny isn't it when we live somewhere we don't actually explore it like we would as say a tourist would. I'm glad to see you are taking the time to see things (and share) anew. That Conservatory, swoon!!!!
