I wanted to take the boys to the Muskoka Wildlife Centre today but the weather wasn’t cooperating.  It’s been rain, rain and more rain lately.  Plan B was a drive out to Bracebridge to learn about candlemaking at the Rich Hill Candle and Gift shop.  A kind employee gave us a quick tour of the facility and showed us how they make candles there.  Another employee gave D and P the rundown on how to dip tapers and shaped candles.  The guys had a lot of fun doing this and the results were some very colourful candles that we hope to light over dinner tonight.  We were almost the only people there so the boys could dip and experiment at their leisure.  They certainly found that a more enjoyable way to spend the afternoon than continuing in the books.  I did too.
