Sometimes little moments mean the most...

  • Go to Chapters, read a book and have a fun drink from Starbucks
  • Go to the pet store and look at all the animals then research how to care for them
  • Go to the Humane Society, soup kitchen, salvation army to find out about volunteer opportunities
  • Go to a Travel Agency and get travel books to plan a dream vacation
  • Go to the mall and pick out an outfit for each other to try on
  • Go to the library and research a country, then make plans to create a dinner from that country during your next outing, complete with music and table settings (you can borrow DVD's and CD's from the library for free!)
  • Stop by Tourism London on Wellington Road near Southdale for some really great ideas and coupons

*Free Friday nights at the Children's Museum
