So what better way to spend a Monday than up on the mountaintop? Add some falling snow, some snowshoes, our favourite big buddies from Take a Hike and we’ve got lots of reasons to smile! Cypress Mountain felt like the top of the world!
It kind of went like this . . .
Put on the snowshoes and head up and up and up. Big buddies and little buddies were supposed to be sticking together. And that happened (mostly). There was some coaxing and some chasing. But we kept smiling!
Get some rosy cheeks and keep smiling!
Stop to celebrate along the way! We walked a long ways up!
If you took a little longer getting to the top, celebrate a little bigger!
Head back down – this time knowing where we are going!
Stop to smile! (and savour the view!)
Sometimes you need to go back up a few times so . . .
You can go down! Wheee!
Let your smile show how you felt about the day!
And remember, you are never too old to smile big! Take a Hike seniors were troopers! Thanks for all the help guys!
So sad I missed this adventure! What a beautiful, snowy, winter day you had.
We missed you too! And yes, an absolute winter wonderland 🙂
One of our classes just had a snowshoe trip, Carrie. What a grand adventure, looks so fun!
It was a fantastic trip! So much fun to get the kids outside and to be able to say, “Look how high you climbed!” Such pride!
These pictures make my heart sing! The looks on the children’s faces…the snow…the sheer happiness and delight…yipppeee!
We couldn’t have asked for a better day – snow everywhere we looked. And yes, the smiles . . .
