There are so many great things to do here in Ottawa for families – for young kids and old ones too. :) Family fun (not to mention FREE family fun!) is part of why I love Ottawa so much.

Is that Lime Kiln trail? I love that walk. We took a hike through Jack Pine a few weekends ago and Hubby was surprised at all the bird feeding, is this the norm now?

Oh, I’d like to know where that is, too. So lovely! I just had a meeting at the Old City Hall down on Sussex, and was thinking (a) we should go wandering down there more often and (b) there really are a lot of lovely places to wander in Ottawa.

Thanks for the link to the Flickr toys!! Had been there before and forgot all about it!!

My kids and I just fed the chickadees (not in Ottawa of course) a couple of weeks ago for the first time…I had no idea they would eat right from our hands and it was alot of fun. I showed Mouse (my 4 year old) the pictures of the girls with the birds and seed on their hats, now we are going back to try that!
