I'm a bit limited these days as far as adventuring in the outdoors with Jonas is concerned, and both have a bad case of cabin fever. So, we decided to not let the fact that I'm nine months pregnant and it's cold and snowy outside stop us. We found a nice compromise this past weekend. A tiny "hike", a nice hill, and a good 'old tree let us combine tobogganing and camping to make for a darned great afternoon!
|We baked a little bannock at home to take with us.|
It's not as good baked in the oven as it is over a campfire but it was yummy!
|There was just enough fresh snow that it wasn't a slippy walk for this preggo.|
|Jonas got his fill of throwing himself down the hill on his new GT Sno Racer.|
|He practiced his snow ball making and throwing.|
|Climbed a tree.|
|We brought a backpack filled with Mr. Noodles, hot chocolate, |
a couple of army mess cups, spoons, a kettle, water and a little camp stove.
|And brewed up a little hillside snack, camping style.|
|Mr. Noodles, Jonas's current favourite, after good old KD, of course.|
It tasted pretty good with the bannock dipped in the broth.
|He ate on his GT Sno Racer.|
|I had a wool blanket and padded seat to keep my butt warm.|
|After he got his fill, it was time to head home.|
