Skating on a frozen mountain lake! Thank you to @mountainmomyyc & @lsouchotte for the inspiration to get out and do it! ❤️
Have you ever skated on a frozen mountain lake? With the lake frozen and no snow, it’s pretty incredible! You can see clearly to the bottom! Such a fun experience!
Just what I needed... a weekend full of long talks (about every topic under the sun), hikes, sunshine and so many laughs! How did the weekend end, with the very best question: “When are we doing this again?”
(Check our stories for a recap of the weekend)
This was my very first girls trip since having my kids and it was the best. thing. ever.
I have my reasons for not doing it sooner but I’m so glad I finally did and these ladies where the best to travel with. Do you go on trips with friends? Where is your favourite place to go (need all the ideas for the next one we are planning)!
Three year olds are the best! They are so full of questions and want to know how everything works. We are fully into the “why” stage and get asked that all day long. The other day as he and my husband were walking jn the house, I overheard this conversation:
“Daddy, why is Copper no longer with us”
“She’s in heaven, buddy”
“No! She died”
“Yes, that’s true and now she’s in heaven”
“And that’s where kids go? And adults? And toys?”
It’s so fun to see him try to understand concepts and this is not an easy one to explain. But it’s the same with traveling too, we get to talk through so many things with them as we have new experiences together. Are there any things that your kids are hooked on and constantly asking questions about?
We do our best to get outside as much as possible despite the weather... but what does stop us is being sick and it’s hit us hard this month. After weeks of it passing from one to another we are all feeling pretty fed up. We finally all felt good enough for a short hike on Sunday then I (Celine) ended up in bed all day yesterday... all I can say is that a girls trip I have coming up this weekend can’t be here soon enough! Full disclosure: this will be the first time I’m away from my kids 😱 that’s right, the only nights I’ve been away were when I had a c-section with our little guy and was in the hospital for two nights!
Do you plan regular getaways with friends?
