Summer Day Adventure - Dundurn castle.

I wanted to finally update our blog with a little adventure we took to Dundurn castle last week. Now that Lisa lives closer we are able to take advantage of little day trips to local places. I'm making of list of places we can visit this summer. More adventures to come!

Simplicity in a baseball diamond

Yesterday I asked Norah if she wanted to go on a hike. We have a trail near our house that's great to let little ones run around and discover wildlife. Right beside the trail are a few baseball diamonds. Something about the sand and the big surrounding field makes the perfect setting for a two-year-old. A place I wouldn't normally think to bring her to, but boy did she love it there because I couldn't drag her away. Apparently baseball diamonds are the bees knees. We never did make it for our hike, by the time she was done running around it was time to head home.  

Our time at the baseball diamond reminded me that the simplest places can be fun for a child. Children have this way of showing us that there is beauty and adventure everywhere.

Happy May!

May is one of my favourite months of the year. The weather getting warmer, flowers blossoming and the promise of a full summer on the way. This winter was long and drawn out and summer feels a little like a new beginning to me.  I can't wait. I thought I would share a few of my favourite instagram photos from April.  From mine & Karen's account.
