Family Day 2014

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Ottawa

Our day included an outing into the Gatineau Hills. It was pure gorgeousness; warm sun, white snow, blue skies. Heavenly serenity.

This was my view on the way back to the car, along the Parkway:

Cross country ski trail Gatineau Hills

We followed an easy trail, marked no.5. It was good, although I was mildly annoyed at the overall lack of signage and wayfinding. (I do like to know where I’m going and how long it will take me to get there.)

Also: I only wiped out once, and the only thing that was damaged was my pride.

How was your Family Day?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
