Family Fun - Week 14

Our New Year's resolution was to do at least one family activity or outing, just the five of us, every week this year. This is week 14 of family fun.

Spring is very slow coming to Ontario this year. The grass, trees, and plants still seem really lifeless. This makes for a great time for gathering cool sticks - clearly an eight year old's point of view. So we did a hike for this week's family fun. We have often walked along the mill race trail in St. Jacob's but always starting in St. Jacob's and going in a single direction. This time we started in St. Jacob's and went the opposite way. The kids loved being beside the river and spent a long time throwing in rocks and sticks and walking out on logs and generally getting wet and muddy. The trail is wide and would be perfect for biking, that's now on the list of future family fun activities.

We checked the temperature before we left, 12ºC, but we didn't account for the wind. It was so windy. Fiacra and Ailbhe seemed oblivious, Finian didn't mind too much, but Connell was freezing. Perhaps he shouldn't have listened to his wife making fun of him for thinking about wearing his winter coat in 12º.
