One way to make the best out of winter in Canada, is to go tobogganing. Get the kids bundled up, call the dog, and head to the nearest big hill. I live on a deep, gently sloping coulee and when my son was young, I could watch him & his buddies from the kitchen window. Nothing like hot chocolate & cookies after an afternoon of sliding down and trudging back up a big hill in several feet of snow!
A sweet painting! I love the body language of the little one in front. Totally worth trudging through the snow for the thrill of the slide!!
