Canada Day In Fernie Without Fireworks

That’s only a few days away! How did that happen?! School’s almost out, my strawberries are turning red, Fernie is looking lush…so of course it’s almost Canada Day.

Here’s the festival Facebook page with a Farmer’s market and everything. What it doesn’t tell you is that Naena Robinson is playing at 4:30. Not to be missed.

This is what it says, though:

“Get ready for some serious Canada Day fun in Fernie, BC. This is one of the biggest farmers market events of the year.

The City of Fernie is excited to once again be hosting the Canada Day celebration from 12pm-9pm on July 1!

The event will be held on the Fernie Aquatic Centre grounds and include a full lineup of live music, children’s activities, the Mountain Market, free swimming, beer gardens and much more.

The Mountain Market will runs from noon to 5pm.

The City of Fernie would also like to let the community know that due to the recurring high seasonal fire risk, we have decided not to include a fireworks display at the 2019 Canada Day festivities.

In lieu of actual fireworks, I’ll leave you with this:

Fernie On Instagram – Private Art Lessons

I get a little nervous before I do something I haven’t done before. Even when it involves teaching a 5 year old! You just don’t know what to expect. But I was pleasantly surprised during my first private art lesson how keen my little student was. He wasn’t even phased by my kids plan for watching tv. He tried so hard to understand some fairly complex ideas and we are both looking forward to the next lesson. This makes me so happy! I took a little page from my husband’s book on teaching kids how to mountain bike – show them how to bike by biking with them and making it fun.

Confessions Of A Lazy Person : Riding With Kids

At the moment I’m so glad I have kids who love riding their bikes. Their pace is exactly mine, when it comes to mountain biking. They want to stop and eat snacks every 10 minutes. They take their time climbing uphill. My husband chooses the easier trails. The adults want the kids to enjoy biking so they do silly things to make them want more. I want more! It’s a million times more enjoyable than just powering up a mountain to get maximum fitness.

I don’t feel like an unfit slob when I ride with the kids and I love it!

Fernie On Instagram : Lazy Lizard With The Family

We took the kids and an extra friend on a Lazy Lizard bike ride yesterday and I really enjoyed a few things about it. I love the trail, the flow of climbs and descends make the trail manageable, it’s busy (which some people won’t like but I do because I feel like there’s enough noise around to keep the wildlife away) and the kids can do it. It’s my kind of bike ride!
