strange tracks in the snow... they must be troll tracks!
is this a troll home in this tree? We investigated
While here in Ottawa:
~ we had the chance to see lots of family (some from far away - PEI+NWT)
~ we had a nasty head cold and then an even nastier stomach flu
~ we've been to museums, swimming pools, giant indoor playgrounds, sugar shacks, nature walks at the bog, and the movies (well at least Noah went to the movies).
~ and we've eaten our fair share of yummy food!
Our time here has given me the chance to reflect on some pretty serious issues that pertain to life. Things like happiness and where do I see our family after we leave Beaver Creek, friendships and relationships and marriage.
And while I have enjoyed the cafes and yummy eats, the seeing of family and the easiness of popping over to friend's houses, I really do miss home and feel ready to head back to the North, where we have a slower and more simple life.
Here are a few pictures of us at Mer Bleue Bog. A favourite spot we frequent when we are in Ottawa but need a quick and easy dose of the outdoors. We had a beautiful sunny warm day, where we ate our lunch outdoors, looked for trolls and troll houses and saw a real porcupine. I love that this "city girl gone country" feels more at ease in the outdoors... and so do the kids!
