Growing Out On A Limb

March Break in NB

Leave a comment

March break was a combination of work and play – a few days at work then a couple of days off to spend with the kids.

The week started off with a turkey hunt.  Yup, a turkey hunt.  After being told that turkeys are spotted regularly at the old homestead, we set off for a walk to see if we could find any.  We saw lots of tracks (those suckers are big!) but no turkeys, though it was a really nice day for a walk just the same.

We found this old carriage at someone’s old camp.

Lots of hanging around… the feet tell a better story of the energy level than the stillness of their faces.  IMG_20160313_171917

Papa took Thursday off of work and we headed for the camp.  We drove about halfway in, then walked the rest of the way.  It was a beautiful day – mild and lightly falling snow.  IMG_20160317_102216IMG_20160317_104349

We had a lovely lunch of hotdog buns (inside joke) and then headed back outside.  We had a little hike to the falls… IMG_20160317_130500… and did a bit of sliding.  Eleanor liked the sliding but the boys weren’t all that interested.

IMG_20160317_132606I think the kids were all tired and I know that I was overtired from sharing a room with Eleanor for several days, so we were all on edge and the whole day was… well, edgy. But despite the not-so-pretty feelings I had during that day, the beauty of this place and this scene and the company we were with are what is important and what I hope I will remember when looking at this picture.  IMG_20160317_134504

The week wasn’t very vacation-y for me but it ended with a really fun curling game and time with friends so it ended off on a high note.  It’s always good to be home.
