For now, I can practice my blogging skills since I am on reading week break from school! It's Family Day in Ontario which means my whole family had the day off from work and we had some fun planned. The weather was calling for cold but sunny so we didn't shy away from outdoorsy activities! Seeing as this winter has been brutally cold for the months of December until now, -20 degrees Celsius with the windchill didn't even phase us. All it takes is some thermal pants underneath the jeans and I am happy!
To start off the morning, I layered-up and went for a 6-mile run.
It was cold! But something about running around my old stomping ground while I'm back at home for the week was really exciting so I felt like I could have kept on going.
As soon as I got back, a warm shower was a must. Body temperature back to normal. My brother, his girlfriend Jodie, my mom, and I were then ready to head to Fulton's Sugar Bush for some of the best pancakes and real maple syrup around :)
It's a fair drive into the country to get there but it is worth every kilometer. It opened at 9am and since it is Family Day, we knew to go right for opening or else we'd be waiting a very long time for pancakes and waffles.
|First Batch... yum!|
Now to warm up at home watching the Olympics!!
Have you ever been to an old-fashioned pancake house?
Are you from a small town?
What did you do today?
