Making a camp kitchen, menu planning and food storage

You might think I’m going camping every weekend, I have to disappoint you, I’m outside every day but camping is not every weekend for my family, and me. I am more into backcountry cabin living than in a tent.

Don’t get my wrong, I love the wilderness and I’m not afraid of the backcountry but it is all the organizing involved with camping that drives me crazy. But I can’t take it any more. After spending a summer outdoor in the city, I have to have my nature fix.

Summer rain fun

summerrainToronto has been very hot lately with very little rain. We love hot summer days but we do not mind the summer rain. Our garden needs it and we need it. Next time it rains take advantage of the weather and embrace it. (Of course not when there is lighting or severe weather)

Camp food fun for kids

girl by the lake We had a wonderful camping trip at Pukaskwa National Park. It was everything I was longing for. It got us lots of wilderness and some great hiking opportunities. Though I love to be outside in the city, I love to get outdoors in the wilderness. (I live in the fourth largest city in North America) Add a comment

Teaching your kids a swimming culture: swim with your kids

Yesterday my toddler had a wonderful time in the pool. She loved to jump in the pool and even swim a little bit. I talked to another mom teaching her child to swim at the pool. She told she was a swimming instructor and she told me that she wished more parents were swimming with their children before they started swimming lessons, as playing in the water and being comfortable in the water is the first step in learning how to swim.
