Crock A Doodle!

Travel can be hectic.  My SweetGirl and I recently had the opportunity to spend three fun nights at the Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood while she competed in a Dance Competition, and I was determined to make the very most of it!  We had hot chocolate dates, spent obscene amounts of money at the candy store, took long walks through the village, stayed up too late watching TV, and perhaps best of all spent more than two solid hours creating some masterpieces at Crock A Doodle.  A place to pick a piece of pottery and let your creative energy flow.  Or for me, more a place to relax, chat and just have fun.


I loved every single minute of it.  There is something kind of magical about a couple of uninterrupted hours of one on one quality time with you daughter.  I hope she knows how much joy she brings me.  I treasure the opportunities to make these memories, and can’t wait to see what adventure we tackle next!

Please feel free to add you Wordless Wednesday, our almost Wordless Wednesday post to my linky and leave me a comment to let me know you were here!

  3. I have seen a few bloggers having friend/daughter dates recently at their local pottery (? is that what I would call it?) locations..

    I am in love with the idea of doing the same with a few girlfriends of mine! YEARS back I went with a few gals and we had a blast – it would be fun to do it again!

    Glad to hear you had a great time with your daughter!

  4. I still have the mugs I did with my children years ago at our equivalent, here in London…they hold lovely memories of quality time spent with my little ones – when they were little !!

  5. This sounds and looks like it was a fun time 🙂

  6. I have been wanting to take my daughter to one of these pottery making things. I think it would be a lot of fun.

    This is such a great activity for bonding, and I’m glad you two had a good time! I recently went with my partner, and it would definitely be fun family activity.

  30. I think Lolo and I could go paint pottery weekly and never tire of it. So much fun and you have something to hold in your hands to remember the sweet time together.

    When my daughter was young we use to paint all the time,i have done a few paintings over the years but due to MS painting is too difficult now…but those were the fun day !


  1. […] needed gravy and fries on a cold April day.  The highlight for me we spent a couple of hours at Crock A Doodle.  I am by no means an artist, but it was such a gift to spend a couple of hours with my Sweet girl […]
