May Two-Four

This weekend was Victoria Day in Canada – the unofficial start to summer – celebrated in honour of Queen Victoria’s and the reigning monarch’s birthday. Celebrated the Monday before May 24th (hence the name), it’s traditionally the weekend that everyone disappears from the cities and opens their summer cottages.

When living with food allergies, rest and relaxation is more than needed … without it, we would lose our minds! While there are getaway destinations that cater to food allergies, it’s much more relaxing to have a place where you know that your child will be safe.

Our extended family has a trailer near Huntsville, 2 hours north of our house in Uxbridge. In the summer Krystyne and the boys practically live there. We share weeks with her sister and parents to allow everyone a chance to get away from it all in the quiet woods – well, quiet until we arrive. :)

The campground has a central restaurant – called the hub – where everyone is welcome to come and eat, but they’re not peanut-free. However, our trailer has a little kitchenette and we have a barbeque just outside the door, so we can still enjoy the holiday.

One of the funny parts of driving to the trailer is watching for the sign welcoming us to Port Sydney – the nearby town. The town council was certainly creative …

So welcome to summer, everyone! Stay safe!
