|Skating on the Ottawa Canal|
I cannot believe it is February already!!! The only thought I have is.....SPRING is only 3 months away!!! YAY! Not that I don't enjoy winter....I just get really done with the snow and cold after January. But this year, we seem to have embraced all that a Canadian winter has to offer...kids help you to have fun in the cold and snow!
When I see snow, the first thought I have is to stay inside, sit by the fire, read a great book and drink some 'warm my insides up' kind of tea......but my kids want to sled, skate, build snowmen, play house, eat snow, make snow angels, throw snow, shovel snow and after their toes can't be felt, drink a steaming cup of hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows (I am all about that last one!).

So, off we go to Winterlude in Ottawa.....

Our frozen toes didn't allow us to visit every attraction at Winterlude, but they had a giant snow maze, sledding, igloo's with a fire inside, outdoor playground, more ice/snow slides, yummy maple snow toffee and lots more.......
