Angie, Elizabeth and I went to Billings Estate for Family Day activities this year. We were a little sad that the house was closed due to renovations, but Angie got to buy some authentic Billings tea.
I got to snowshoe for the very first time, which was very exciting! Elizabeth didn't want to try "self" so I carried her instead "ike a baby". Luckily the snow was pretty packed down so it wasn't too challenging, although I did keep forgetting which foot I needed to move first in order to turn (the outside one).
After snowshoeing around the house, we roasted marshmallows and went on a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Elizabeth was so charmed by the "horsey walking" that she forgot all about pretending to be a baby for a bit.

Billings Estate is one of those places that I can't believe I've never explored. I SO need to do that. Do they do that stuff all winter long? (would it make a good kidsinthecapital.ca post maybe? :)

The snowshoeing looks great! I have never been to Billings Estate. I will have to visit.

I've never been snowshoeing, but I've heard it's a good workout. And you got double the workout because you were carrying a toddler! :)
