The drive to Toronto took so much longer than we were expecting, but when we got to the hotel the staff had everything for our package ready for us and the girls immediately hit the pools. They even got us a life jacket for DD2 since we didn't think to bring one and the big pool was too deep for her to swim in with her sister.
We saw that there was an Ikea just down the street from the hotel so we took a trip there after supper and a second dip in the pool. Unfortunately everything we were looking at buying was sold out.
Anyway, we got up the next morning and headed for the zoo, the girls loved it! We went to the pandas first so there was very little line up and then started on the paths. We walked every single path and saw every animal there. By the end of the day and over 7 hours of walking later my feet were so sore! We had the sit stand with us for DS and DD2, but DD1 was amazing walking the whole time and never complaining once. We did leave earlier than we expected though, our plan was to spend the whole day there from open to close. A little after 4pm we had been to every exhibit there and the crowds were insane so we decided to call it a day and head home.
The drive home was even longer than the drive there, 3 times the 401 came to a complete standstill and the rest of the time we were driving at like 20km/hour. The kids were great though, we turned on a movie for them and they didn't complain at all.
So, long post, but we had a great trip!
