Every once in a long while, we take the kids bowling.

This week (the kids’ March Break), with temperatures that dropped below -40 celcius with wind chill, was a good week for indoor activities.

So we bowled. Terribly, most of the time. But we had fun.

Apple Picking

On our trip to Ontario, we took the kids apple picking.

Endless rows of apple trees lined the fields; each tree bursting with ripe fruit. Thousands of apples for the taking.

The kids took turns climbing onto their father’s shoulders, reaching for the highest, reddest apples they could find. We filled a barrel to bring home: apple pie, apple crisp, apple muffins…

And we savoured the sweet, crisp taste of apples straight from the tree.
