Nature Connection


Some of the best times I have with Reece are outside, in nature, hiking, exploring, making homes for the forest fairies and connecting with nature and each other. I am so happy he loves joining me for my little moments in nature; it brings so much joy and happiness to both of us.

On the weekend, we hit Bowmanville Valley for a little hike, exploration, rock throwing and creek wading. 














We had a great time together and can’t wait to do it again.

  7. I feel bad for not wanting to get outside with my kid more often. There is so much magic to be found! I hatehatehate hot weather, which is already here in my neighborhood. But I resolve to make it outside more often this summer! This looks like a perfectly wonderful way to spend the time.

    1. I hear you! I have such a hard time getting out once it gets hot...and we are already in the 90s this week. Ugh! But here we at least have cool mornings so we try to get out first thing.

    3. It is, I highly recommend a spot by the water - usually cooler, and it is so soothing. I hope you can make it outsider more, it is a magical place for kids and adults :)

  8. I love this. We too spent the weekend outside, but we spend most days outside. I am so happy my littles feel more comfortable outside than in. I totally agree that it is a chance to reconnect, both with nature and the earth and with each other.
    Looks like you had a beautiful time and he is just too cute in the hat.
