Enjoying the Last Bits of Winter

Spring finally seems to be arriving, and the snow is disappearing rapidly from our backyard and the streets.  But a couple of weeks ago, when the weather was colder and the ground whiter, Matthew and I enjoyed an afternoon outside with friends, at our local environmental centre.  It was a terrific day, topped off with a hot drink at Starbucks at the end!

This was Matthew's first attempt at snowshoeing...he loved it...and I loved it, too, because it totally exhausted him!

Even wipe-outs were fun!






Of course, the toboggan run is always a hit with the boys....

I doubt we'll see any more of these days until next winter, but it's always a fun option while the colder weather hangs about...especially when the company is so enjoyable.
