Sesame Street has been a popular TV show in our house for a long time! My 3-year-old daughter, Ava, is such a big fan she even had a Sesame Street party when she turned two! Like most young children, she LOVES Elmo and his popular ‘Elmo Musical’ segment, which features new adventures in the monster’s pretend world.

The winters in Montreal are some of the coldest and after months of harsh weather you come to take full advantage of the warm months in the city. This summer my family spent lots of time doing outside activities like playing in the park, visiting our local neighborhood wading pool and taking a two-week vacation to a beautiful cottage.
