  • Monica

    I've waited all winter to put on a dress, flip flops, sunglasses, lots of sunscreen and wander around the city just watching people and listening to them enjoying this wonderful weather. I absolutely love seeing how full of life everything is during summer time. The city has a completely new set of colors, sounds and smells (except for BO haha).

  • Vicky Turnbull

    I have been waiting all winter to play outside with my crawling baby so he can feel the wind in his hair, grass under his toes and hear the birds chirp. Also for him to play in dirt and get all messy like boys do! I think Wayne would like to go on summer adventures with my little Jacob.

    I have been waiting all winter for the seagulls to come back and nest so I can get some pictures of the chicks when they hatch!… unless I miss them again this year, but we have a breeding pair nesting on the roof opposite us so even if i miss them at the nesting site I should catch them from my kitchen window

    Yeah I know I'm crazy!

    Y…..yelling “you're it!!!”
    N…..nature walks with the kids (you'd be surprised at what we find)
    E…..enjoying every momment

    We don't need a lot of gadgets to have fun, we just need eachother. We spend our summers in the sprinkler, in the woods, fishing at the lake, and playing in the mud after a nice summer rain. All the while, the cellphones stay in the house!!!

    I've been waiting all winter to be able to rollerblade, skydive and use outhouses. But not all at once. I'm also very excited to be able to drop things on the ground and still be able to eat them after wiping the dirt off. Things falling in snow usually doesn't go as well.

  • ecee

    really? I would think fresh snow is cleaner than dirt lol

  • Lilycups

    I've been waiting for this wedding that I've been planning for ALL winter! But once this one day fun-summer-tivity is done, I can finally: play the guitar in my balcony, read philosophy books under a tree, go for a walk to the park pulling my niece in her wagon, celebrate the last days of pre-teacher's college with a friend, go catch crayfish in the pond and plant Wayne in the bushes to freak out some kids! wahahaha! Can't wait!

    being able to re-live my childhood and the innocent lives that children live was one of the reasons I am getting into a teaching career :)

This is going down next next Fri-Sun father's day weekend. Loaded Smoke's Poutine with a side of edible crayons..am I in heaven? I LOVE VIDAFINE!!!

  • http://twitter.com/phileasc Phileas Cheng

    lol…awesome shameless plug Eunice ;)
    but in all seriousness that sounds really good. i've been waiting the longest time for bbq outdoors and a healthy dose of smoke's poutine sounds amazing as well

  • julia

    My fun-summer-tivity is to appropriate all the chalk drawn hopscotch boards I find as my own. I will jump them, regardless of what I am wearing or whom I am with, or the fact that I am in my thirties and look completely ridiculous.

  • andrea

    i've been waiting all summer to bike around the city and post stickers of random objects. last summer was carrots, maybe this year can be wayne.

  • Renee

    I have waited all winter for Christmas in July! We wanted to start a new/fun tradition with our kids, so this year we are doing a christmas in july! Complete with tree, milk and cookies, and stockings filled with fun summertime activities (sidewalk chalk, bubbles, new soccer ball etc).

  • Lindsey

    My fun summer-tivity is riding my unicycle! I haven't learned a new hobby in years, so I asked for a unicycle for my birthday on a whim, now I can't wait to master it!

    I've been waiting to use the garden hose to fill up my minifridge and put my cat in it. Unplugged and sitting open on the front lawn of course. She seems to like it, so I don't stop her.

    I've also been waiting to go pirate-spotting. They always seem to be away at sea during the winter.

  • Trudel

    I've waited all winter to visit family in Toronto, and lazily wander downtown Toronto…and stare at the giant fencing protecting the G20. :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/eugene.loo Eugene Loo

    The Great Wall of Toronto is something for tourists and residents alike.

    Weighing in at an estimated $5.5 million dollars and towering in at over 10 feet high, it is not only a spectacle in itself but essentially a work of art.

    Okay, no it's not. It's more just like an ugly wall.

  • http://www.facebook.com/eugene.loo Eugene Loo

    Bonus points if you post up a pic of you and your unicycle! That sounds awesome! What colour is it?

    My FUN-SUMMER-TIVITY I’ve waited all winter to do?
