Beat the cold!

It looks like we're going to have a slight reprieve from the cold tomorrow (and although warmer weather always means snow, I personally enjoy extra snow than I do bitter cold!)

Weather for Jan18

The Weather Network is predicting a high of 1, but I've heard it might be as high as 3 - yipee!

That means it's time for our first skate of the year on the canal! Skating with little ones can be tough - last year we turned around and went back home after only 20 minutes. With both girls crying their eyes out and freezing, it wasn't an overly pleasant trip.

But 1 degree is doable I think! And a bit of bribing with beaver tails and hot chocolate is not above me ;)

If skating is not your thing, check out my post on Capital Parent, where I talk about snowshoeing with kids!
