Hiking in the Columbia Valley

Hiking in the Columbia Valley

Winter is coming.

I know because we’ve already had two blasts of snow .. in the summer! In Calgary, you never know when it is all going to go sideways. We could have 20 degrees one day, -2 the next. It really does change overnight.

So that means when you get a wonderful golden stretch of autumn weather on the prairies, you bathe in it.

The past month, we have. Over Thanksgiving we wandered the Columbia Valley with friends (above).

When the first blast of cold weather was forecast in mid-September, we planned an impromptu family picnic at a new park. The boys climbed and ran, we relaxed and basked in the dying sun’s glow, and waited for the cold.

It wasn’t quite Tai Chi, but we still got out on the back deck and pretended to be ninjas as we got ready for a friend’s Tae Kwan Do birthday party.

Even after the snow and cold arrives, we still have a winter of indoor rock climbing,

many hours of fighting Lord Business with our LEGO sets,

and visiting dad at work ahead.

Whatever the weather, the importance is play. Indoors or outdoors the boys celebrate creativity comfortably, thanks to Peekaboo Beans.
