Today was my husband’s first Father’s Day in Toronto.
Given that Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, this city speaks to us.
So we mixed and matched what Toronto has to offer, to bring Chris a Father’s Day that he and his tummy will never forget.
1. Since 5/6 of our family is breakfast obsessed, Father’s Day has to begin at this little Greek diner downtown complete with Greek potatoes and the friendliest staff.
2. Then, to walk off the food coma, we wandered until we found free ice cream from Prince Edward Island (our former home). Ice cream is a food group in our family!
3. Bookstores (well.. the travel section) often call our names and before we knew it, we were the proud owners of these. Cambodia, Turkey and Arabic lessons were on this year’s Father’s Day menu.
4. Then, tired and needing sugar, we found churros from Mexico.
5. The 1/6 of our family who is not breakfast obsessed required some falafel from Israel and Chris, being the sweet husband and dad that he is, participated as well.
6. Tired from our previous night at the drive-in, where we “travelled” to Costa Rica to laugh at the corny movie Jurassic World, we headed home.
7. Nothing speaks Canada more than mowing the lawn (well… shoveling snow maybe). So happy dad taught willing girls how to mow the lawn with his new super duper old-fashioned quiet lawnmower.
A perfect Father’s Day for the perfect father. Happy Father’s Day to all of you as well!
