What's the best family vacation destination in Canada?

My in-laws cottage up north, just south of North Bay. It's so beautiful up there. I love the fact that life is at a slower pace. The only reason we woke up in the morning was to go to the beach and the only reason we come back to the cottage was because the bugs were coming out. I miss it! http://theexperimentalcupcake.blogspot.com/2011/11/whats-best-family-vacation-destination.html

What's your favorite activity to do in the winter with your family?

Lat Leger

Making snowmen, and snowangels! Everyone, including my moody teenager, loves going outside after a heavy snowfall. We start with making snowmen, then move on to snowangels, then Kat starts a snowball fight. Alyssa and Logan just likes to try catching snowflakes with their tongues. I think the best activity is enjoying a Hot Chocolate topped with tons of whipped cream and marshmallows after spending time in the snow!! :) Mmmm...

What's a great indoor activity for kids that doesn't make a huge mess?

Lat Leger

It's really hard to have an indoor activity that doesn't make a huge mess, but my little ones do love Ring-Around-the-Rosie and Hide-n-Seek. I love Hide-n-Seek because they love to hide, which means mommy has time to throw together dinner or a load of laundry in the machine!. :)

What's your go-to snack for your kids?

Lat Leger

My go-to snack would have to be apple slices. They can eat apples morning, noon and night! They also love raisins, cransins, any kind of cheese and Taste of Nature Bars. Oh, if they see the jars, Alyssa and Logan will ask for pickles. It's pretty funny watching them watching TV with pickles in their hands. For Alyssa, she would also have a bowl of mixed olives. Weird, I know, but hey, I figure anything is better then candy and chocolate!! :)
