Hello Sunshine- an introduction to spring

Hello Sunshine- an introduction to spring

Well, like all good things winter has finally come to an end.

You're going to think I'm crazy for saying this, but I’ve enjoyed winter. It gets very, very cold (wait what?? Canada gets cold??? Surprising I know)! But once the thermometer gets to around -30*c, any temperature above that will feel like spring. Before you know it, you'll be walking around wearing flip-flops and short sleeves when at least a foot of snow is still on the ground!

(Yes, I speak from experience) 

Plus the cold weather means all of creepy crawlies are gone for about 7 months of the year and if you keep yourself bundled up properly for the weather conditions (aka not flip-flops), you won't get frostbit! 

We've had a busy beginning to our spring.

Since spring has sprung we've been able to cross visiting Elk Island National Park, getting belay certified and playing long distance Bananagrams off our unwritten bucket list :)

Almost every day you can find us outside soaking in as much sunshine as we possibly can (trying not to be the stereotypical paper white Canadians) and enjoying some beautiful Alberta views.

There are all sorts of animals to see outside, who are enjoying spring and the sunshine too! 

Of course with the beginning of spring it's also time to plant your garden. Even if it's grown on a balcony, there's just something about growing your own produce that makes it taste better! 

..and how would this be an introduction to spring post if there wasn't a bunch of camping trip pictures included?

Sometimes you just have to be outside 24/7 to 100% enjoy springtime to the fullest. 

 As always these happy campers are energized by: Kicking Horse Coffee. Shoutout to Linnea for being the best!

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.
