Easter Weekend.

I am always a fan of holiday weekends. 
Especially when they involve lots of family time!

This past weekend was full of family, and I loved every minute of it. 

Below are some pictures from my family's Saturday in the park. 
We were able to walk around the dog park and then visit the high park zoo.
After our afternoon in the park, we had BBQ on our deck!
{this weather has been ridiculously amazing}

It was fantastic spending time with everyone and seeing how much 
Madeline has changed in the past month!!

Sadly - in the Rob Ford era, the funding for the High Park Zoo has been pulled. 
(current it is a free zoo, with free parking - which is fantastic for families)
It is set to close June 1st. There are many efforts to try to keep this free zoo open. 
Check out here for more details - it is such a great place for families to go. 
I hope something can be done to save it!

It's a{nother} four day week for me!
oh - and I finally read the Hunger Games today. 
Gotta go see the movie soon!



  1. It's nice to read that you had such a great Easter weekend with your family. And your hair in the picture with your mamma is gorgeous! Did you use curlers? Curling iron? Have your own stylist? You're beautiful! xoxo

    1. Thanks Jess! I did my hair with the wonderful Wand that I got for Christmas - I love it! Takes about 20 minutes and stays all day (my hair rarely holds curl). It's become part of my regular rotation!

  2. cute pics allison! jose and i have wanted to go to that zoo...i didn't realize it was closing :( guess we better hustle and get over there!

    1. Thanks Jess! You and Jose should definitely go! It's small, but cute. It was announced that a family will match donations up to $50,000 so we are one step closer to keeping it open, at least for 2012! Hope you had a lovely Easter :)
