Fernie’s Skate & Bike Parks

I do wonder what the rules are, even if they’re just street rules, about biking in the skate park. Please forgive us, as Phoenix was having a great time. We’re so blessed to have such amazing parks in our town.

A Bike Trip To A Beach In James White Park

Our children are still at the age where a bike ride to the beach to throw rocks and explore the shoreline is still a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. I, also, think they’re so blessed to be growing up in Fernie where afternoons like this are typical. Just some fresh air, a few snacks packed away, a nice bike ride along the river and lots of rocks that need a good toss. I’m going to enjoy this while we can.

Summer Programs, Camps & Classes For Kids

eco garden fernie bc - kids camp summer 2015Fernie is unbelievable when it comes to available kid’s programs and camps. I’m so glad we’re in Fernie at a time when the population is so young and booming. I found a few options for this summer and I’ll try and add to it as I find them.

For instance, there is:
EcoGarden Kids Camp: The EcoGarden Kids Camp will be offered for one session for summer 2015 on July 5th thru 12th. Space is limited, register immediately to secure your spot. A week at the EcoGarden Kids Camp costs $250 (incl. tax). The kids (age 5-10) will have their days filled with gardening, science, art, music, games and a whole lot of fun. Register at the upcoming Spring Registration Fair on April 1st and 2nd.

Fernie Adventure Camp: Fernie Adventure Camp is a 5 day camp that takes place in the Elk Valley.  Throughout the week participants will  discover whitewater canoeing, hiking and outdoor living skills.  The camp is for youth ages 13-18.  No previous experience is necessary!  By the end of the week participants will camp out over night as we embark on a two day culminating moving water canoe trip. Organized by Fernie Connections Foundation.

Preschool Pottery: Kids aged 3-6 can join Jenn Woods on Tuesday afternoons this summer. I’m so excited to get my little girl’s hands all full of clay. She’ll love it. More information here: theartsstation.com

Why Didn’t You Tell Me Making A Gingerbread House Is This Hard?!

making a gingerbread house with the kids
I’m quite sure not a single side of my gingerbread house will match up to another nor will it taste good. But we are having fun making it! I think. I do wish someone had told me it’s not as easy as sitting your 3 and 1 year old down to make a gingerbread house together and have it turn out exactly like all those beautiful gingerbread homes you see online. To be honest, without the kids around I would find it hard and I am now seeing the appeal of those gingerbread house sets you buy in a box at the grocery store.

Alas, I do enjoy a challenge.

I’ll let you know how it ends.
