Semlor and Fastelavns boller and Mardi Gras

Different foods are served all over the world, but this pre-lent treat have something in common as they are both very rich with cream and sweet buns like king cake in New Orleans with icing and different colors. Funny enough my husband is going to New Orleans and I’m going to ask him to bring some King cake home so I can taste how it taste compares to semlor and fastelavnbun.

If you haven't made reservations yet but know you want to grab the kids and get outside, take heed of the following six places to go and adventuresome things to do with the entire family:

Camp in Arizona. Budget is a big concern for many these days, so if hotels and airfare aren't practical this year, pack up the family, the tent, camping gear and hit the road. The warm, sunny state of Arizona is not only packed with tons of hiking and exploring opportunities, there's a camp site to fit every style and budget, from full-hookup RV sites to family tent camping areas.

Caught in the rain

Have you ever been caught in the rain? I don't mean a light sprinkle of rain...a sunshower. I mean a downpour - cats and dogs type storm. My daughters and I were caught in a storm last spring...and it was marvelous.

When Childhood Dreams Come True

When I was little, I used to dream about what kind of Mom I would some day like to be. I used to dream about building forts, climbing trees, scrambling up riverbeds and inventing make-believe worlds. I would someday invite my child(ren) to participate in my "worlds," scamper over rocks, balance on logs, and get good and muddy--of course. In the meantime, my younger siblings were all too willing to play roles in the "world of Bronwyn" and to be accomplices in the production of much dirty laundry. (Sorry, Mom.)

Make a Valentine snow cave

heartsnowcavefrontThis weekend Toronto has been a winter wonderland. Though I live in Canada, we have not been very lucky when it comes to fun winter weather. It was fantastic to have so much snow this weekend and watch people have so much fun skiing, skating, sledding and I even saw quite a few smiling faces shoveling driveways.

Valentine Picnic ideas

Dress the youngster s warmly; grab the summer picnic blanket, your favorite Valentine picnic treats and head out to have an afternoon of winter fun. It is no snow at Toronto at the moment so I think it safe to say that we will be skating for our outdoor valentine picnic this year in our community ice rink close to our house if the winter will stay in Toronto.
