Road Tripping with Canadian Tire

Ah, summer in Toronto.
When the warm weather finally came, we began furiously making our way through our Summer Bucket List.
Well, Ava's Summer Bucket List...
At quick glance, you can probably guess which ones I may or may not have added.
I have a funny feeling that we may just get to hers first -
A few weekends ago, we crossed a long-awaited road trip adventure off our list! 
I have forever wanted to walk through a lavender field in Provence; sadly, France is just not in the cards this year.
So, instead, we decided to pack up the car and head north west of the city to a local lavender field.
Terre Bleu really is like a little piece of heaven close to home.
And there also may or may not be a new outlet mall nearby. ahem.

In preparation for the event, we had yet another to-do list to cross off - this time, a prep list of sorts to ensure we were ready to go:
1. Decide on outfits that will look cute in instagram photos
2. Pack a light lunch + snacks
3. Charge the "good" camera
4. Change the oil in the car which may or may not be very slightly overdue
5. Buy new books + small toys for car ride
Our one-stop shop for all things auto is, and has always been, Canadian Tire.
A true Canadian institution.
From coolers {another item to add to my list!} to bug spray to snacks, they've got us covered.
Since I'm planning on doing a lot of driving during the rest of the summer, I purchased the Quaker State® Ultimate Durability™ Full Synthetic Motor Oil for my oil change - it is my usual brand AND the one recommended by the kind folks at Canadian Tire. (the number one oil in Mexico and South America - who knew?)
Priced super competitively and one of the best on the markets - it helps my truck perform well regardless of how many miles we drive. And drive. And drive.
With a fuel-saving additive that helps promote durability and keep the oil fresh as well as a heat-activated viscosity improver AND anti-wear additive - all of which kick in to maintain the oil's thickness and extend your engine life.
Quaker State oil gives you more durability and more honesty at a price that won't break the bank.
Canadian Tire makes road tripping easy.
And we still managed to look pretty darn good doing it.
If I do say so myself.


Did you road trip anywhere this summer?

  1. Dearest Susan,
    Wow, you really got that off your bucket list!
    That Lavender field looks spectacular and yes, why wanting to go to the Provence?!
    Ava is in love with it too, and of course with all the fringe benefits that came with this road trip.
    We've been wanting to go all summer to Hilton Head Island for a 2-night stay for biking the lovely bicycle lanes under the huge live oak trees, in the shade. Checking the weather and seeing a 60% chance of thunderstorms almost every day was not attractive for making the 3-hour trip! But one day we will manage...
    Enjoy the end of summer and sending you hugs,


I love reading every last one. Thanks so much for stopping by our little blog. xo.
