For our family playing outside is a huge part of our everyday. We live in the country on 4 beautiful acres and it would be a crime not to enjoy nature in our own backyard.
Here Is Our Favourite Way to Discover Nature EVERYWHERE!
I know the summer is the optimum time to enjoy your time outside but fall is my favourite time to take a road trip and hike. One of our favourite nature activities to do well hiking or in our own city and anywhere we end up on a road trip is Geocaching. It is a free treasure hunt that runs worldwide. Once you and your family start Geocaching I guarantee you, you will be itching to find your next treasure!
What Direction Is Our Future Heading?
I was surprised to read over on Takemeoutside.ca/rediscovernature that less than 10% of kids are spending time in nature. Those statistics shocked me and at the same time disappointed me. Canada is a beautiful place, each corner and conservation area are packed with new discoveries.
I know many don’t live in the country like me, but the parks in each city is your opportunity to let your children run and explore the beauty of nature. It is our job as parents to introduce the birds, bugs and talk about the wonders of the sky and the history of this great land we call home! Let your kids RUN!
Since it is obvious our relationship with nature is disappearing. Nature Valley talked to 3 generations and asked them one simple question: What did you like to do for fun as a kid?
Be prepared to be shocked and a little upset!
How did that video make you feel? Together we can stop this sad but true future for the generations to come!

Having been to Banff once on a business trip back in 2007, I have to say one family will be enjoying one of Canada’s most beautiful pieces of heaven. Banff and Lake Louise is absolutely breathtaking and holds a spot on my family’s bucket list. The picture below almost seems like I am standing in front of a tourist backdrop when it is in fact overlooking Banff.
