The tornado rips through Main Street Mobile

 Have I told you before that my youngest is a tornado? He is the wild child that has no concept of personal space and doesn’t realize how loud his voice is. He has also managed to throw a wooden spoon down next to a little girl which nearly stabbed her like a javelin. A pure tornado.

Our day started off with a coffee date at Tim Hortons on Fourth Street. We like going there because of the variety of seating. We can choose from couches, bench seating or chairs. We love going IN to the coffee shop to take a moment to enjoy it and relax. We started the day off calm, but then the tornado was pumped full of sugar from his hot chocolate before we headed to our destination. Most of the time he stared at the people sitting behind us so my “date” ended up looking like this.

We arrived at the Estevan Leisure Centre around 10am. The forecourt was laid out with different stations that included different types of learning through play experiences. Our first stop was at the find a fish bin. Little jelly objects were hiding toy fish in a bucket and we had to use tongs to find them.

The tornado didn’t have a sugar rush yet but it was coming. Dust was collecting around him.

We met up with a friend and his mom and I tested our luck at carrying an egg along a track without dropping it.

Fishing was next, and that’s when the sugar kicked in. We rode horses, played cars, blew bubbles, climbed through tunnels, and then we then did it all over again.

He had so much fun and I loved watching him run from one station to another with so much excitement. Thanks to the Estevan Literacy Group for coordinating the Main Street on Mobile to come to Estevan. We had the best date, even if it ended up with me changing his pants in the bathroom. That’s what happens with 2 year olds right? 😉

Get out there and #ExperienceEstevan

  • This is our home

    We are so lucky to call Canada home and to have a City where a party is thrown in its honour. I was a die-hard celebrator this year; we made a whole day out of the event. We took the kids to the festivities in the afternoon and my husband and I were lucky enough to have a night out in the evening.

  • Michaella attemps a new sport … GOLF!

    Recently, I was lucky enough to step away from the Tourism Center for the morning and visited one of Estevan’s biggest attractions: The TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club. They are located just 3km south of Estevan along the Souris River.

    We are so happy to see so many people experiencing Estevan. We love hearing about what you love to do in our city and we look forward to sharing our experiences with you too. Each year Summer Students work out of the Visitor Information Centre. They help book Energy Tours and guide visitors that are coming into our community with a wealth of knowledge about everything there is to do in Estevan.
