Well, the blog has been very quiet over the past couple of weeks… I’ve been busy working on a few projects and enjoying my “slow” month of the year! Lots of great things coming up, with lots of posts to come!
Before spring truly decides to stay, I thought I’d share an adventure we went on with my family a couple of weeks ago for my mom’s 60th birthday. Birthdays are often so challenging to find just the right gift, so my siblings and I decided to do an “experiential gift” with the whole family… DOGSLEDDING!!! And it was an absolute blast!!
We went through a company up in Canmore called Snowy Owl Tours and really, can’t say enough about them! We met in town at their office and were then shuttled up into the mountains about 40 mins away. There, we were greeted by the most friendly guides, who obviously are so passionate about what they do and their dogs! We were so impressed with the treatment and affection they had towards theses beautiful animals and the dogs so clearly loved them too! We were given a crash course on how to drive a sled and then got to meet our team. Once settled into the sleds, we were off for an hour-long trail ride through the beautiful mountains!
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day… the sun was shining, it was above zero, and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking! The kids found the whole experience so exciting – Levi was overheard later that day telling my mom that this was the best day of his life! And the dogs themselves were amazing… so friendly, so beautiful!
All in all, it was such a memorable experience! A check off the bucket list!
