We're from BC. We're ocean kayakers, rainforest hikers, mountain trekkers, and we know how to camp in the rain.
We moved to Ontario last February, and were horrified to see the summer nearly escape without a family wilderness adventure. Afraid of having our "outdoorsy" status revoked and of being demoted to "frauds with a basement full of gear," we scrambled to plan a trip for the last weekend in September.
It is fall and some rainy days, as you know rainy days do not stop us for getting out the door. In fact some of the most fun happen on rainy days.
But, you know it is not fun to get wet, that’s why rainy days call for proper clothing. Our favorites for kids raingear is Puddlegear, base in Vancouver the only place in North America who sells European style raingear. PVC free and functional raingear. With this gear you little will be set for many puddle-jumping contests .
Psst: Tell them you read it here and you will get 10% off
Our sisters in Copenhagen have known this for a long time; you got to look stylish when walking in the rain. Ilse Jacobsen offers fabulous raingear. You can buy them at Gumdrops online. Base in Vancouver
I have fetish like all women; shoes, but my is not normal shoes mine is rubber boots.
My favorite right now for adults is Ilse Jacobsen and Hunter.
For kids no doubt it got to be Hunter

We had some friends over today in our yard, kind of a rescheduling of events because it was raining last Thursday. We still got outside on Thursday, but we were unable to do this craft. We gathered leaves and then the kids assembled them, along with sticks and whatever else they wanted, on t-shirts.Add a comment

My daughter, Alexis, has always had a hard time trying new things. Even having her taste a new breakfast cereal has been a tricky task in the past, so you can imagine how much trouble it was to get her to try out a new sport! And this isn’t simply swimming or hockey we’re talking about; oh no, something a little more extreme: skiing.
Remember getting in some outdoor time doesn't have to be hard. Walking to school or to other activities also counts. Being visible this time of year is important for both kids and adults and can prevent accidents. So please wear a safety reflector heart and be safe on the road.
