During our Christmas and New Year break, we had some fun with family and friends.
The girls had a visit from their Aunt Laurena and also took a trip to Resurgo Place, a museum in Moncton, where we all met with friends and cousins Karen and Kelly. The museum has neat learning play stations, where you can try out experiments and inventions, plus the usual exhibits.
New Years was a great time for the kids. They were invited to their first New Years party and got psyched up with New Years movies and music before going. The midnight fireworks were a big hit — for some more than others!
We also took a trip to Cape Breton between the snow storms after New Years. It was a short trip, but we were able to catch up with the grand parents, spending a few family days packed with activity. The big hit was The snowstorm day where we spend time playing games, watching movies, sledding, ‘belated Christmas dinner’, snow wrestling and more silly games!
Of course the beach combing in winter was our outdoor highlight.
I took a 11 kilometre snowshoe hike on my birthday as part of my 40 at 40 challenge this year. Sheena gave a gift of hikes to me, and I just have to do them! I’ll post more details on each one as I knock them down. The first was in Wagmatook, Cape Breton. I hiked in 3-4 feet of snow to the Humes River, in search of Humes Falls. I did lose the trail near the end and without map or GPS, decided to turn around as it was getting late in the day. Poor Willow was tired , not to mention her owner too. A retry will be necessary.
