Mommy & Me Adventures: Rawson Lake June 11, 2017

Another weekend with my boy, another adventure to get going on! Originally we had planned to go to Ptarmigan Cirque, but the highway was not opened yet.

One of my FAVORITE  hikes so far this year with my beautiful boy! The rain was not going to stop, and we were not going to let it stop us either! I was on Facebook one day, and I came across this post about best hikes in the Kananaskis with kids, so I thought I…

The Canada Day, Long weekend ended up turning out a lot better than I thought it would, as the forecast called for rain and thundershowers for a chunk of it!  – but still managed to get a lot in and it was MUCH needed! I can’t believe how much I crave open space! Fresh air,…

Mommy and me adventures – to date

Last summer I was .. well – a new crazy paranoid mom! I was to afraid of bugs around my baby’s new, perfect sensitive skin! I refused to put sunscreen on him and I know how I react in the sun, and I could only imagine how much worse it would or could be for a…
