3 Year Old Boy Fishing for the First Time – Video {Wordless Wednesday}

My husband and I invited my Dad to come with us to take our boys fishing. We tried fishing off of a dock on a lake but we were not getting any bites even after a couple hours so we decided to take them to a fish hatchery where there were stocked ponds to fish in. You could see the trout swarming in the ponds. It was a lot of fun and both of my boys caught 5 each. We ate them for supper and the boys ate a whole one each! My just-turned-3-year-old had soooo much fun and was… » Continue Reading

Fit Family Feature #44 (Melanie)

Fit Family Feature #44 (Melanie)

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day. Working out is usually the last thing on our to-do lists. I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.     In this week’s Fit Family Feature, I am interviewing… » Continue Reading

Hiking Au Diable Vert, Sutton Quebec

I am on a mission to try out all of the hiking trails where I live here in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

Last week, my best friend Jessie and her baby joined us and we drove 1.5 hours to try hiking Au Diable Vert, Sutton Quebec. Green Devil, is such a cool name for a nature park. Au Diable Vert offers sustainable tourism in… » Continue Reading

I took my two little boys strawberry picking this week. They really enjoyed it and had a blast snacking as they picked. We picked a box full and they are the sweetest strawberries I have ever eaten.     Have you ever gone strawberry picking? Do you bake with them or eat them all fresh?
