We had a great time in the great outdoors many times over the holidays! I really want to help Carter and Jace develop a love for all things active and outdoors. (Ask my hubby....I loathe video games...more time in front of the TV is not what I want for my children.) I am a firm believer in getting outside...clearing the cobwebs from our brains, and getting some good old-fashioned exercise. We are blessed with living on an acreage with lots of farmland around us to use...this is how we spent the holidays!
Snowmobiling is a favourite of Carter’s!
We spent an afternoon making ice candles for our patio…definitely doing more of these!
Lots of snowshoeing!
Carter does great snowshoeing, but sometimes needs a little break…so Dad gives him a ride.
Yes…the donkey hats were a Christmas present!

We took Carter on his first big snowmobiling excursion…a whole day at Athabasca. He LOVED it!! After waking up at 5:30am to get treatments in before we left, then an hour drive….we arrived back at the truck from snowmobiling around 4pm. Carter was disappointed and said to his dad: “But daddddd, I thought we were snowmobiling ALL day!” What a trooper our little man is!
WE LOVED our holidays with so much time outside…in fact…we are going to keep it up all winter!
