Toronto parents

Josh [13 ]and I are flying over to Canada 25 July and will be staying in Toronto [ Western Battery Road ] with my elder son.
We will be there for the first weekend 26-27 July and then back again 7/8 August.

Just wondering if anyone wants to meet up for a coffee and chat? It would be good to put faces to names that are on here.

I know it's a few weeks away, but I like to be organised

Hi Supportivemom

My elder son moved to Canada 11 years ago when he married his Canadian wife. They first lived in Winnipeg where his wife is from, them moved to Toronto about 5 years ago. My son works for a Canadian bank and his wife for the University of Toronto.
Josh and I have been many times and love it there. We are really looking forward to being there this summer too.

Just to say we fly to Toronto tomorrow 25 July. I will be taking my tablet computer with me so will update days we would be able to meet up if anyone is interested.
We are off to the Blue Mountians for a week on Monday so it will be after that.

We are both really looking forward to having a good break, Josh is about the healthiest he has been in a long time, so no worries of being away this time

Let's try to do a meet up with all of us August 8! That would be great! Sorry I can't do today. I didn't know I was designated chauffeur for my oldest kid's group outing. Ugh

A meet up on the 8th sounds good. Let me know the best place to meet and I will try to find it. Probably afternoon will be better for us. We are heading out for a week tomorrow so won't be able to reply until next Sunday. Looking forward to seeing you x
