In winter, Carla and Renan enjoy playing outside in the snow. We usually go to a small hill close to our house. It’s a great place for sledding/tobogganing, and we just have to walk for around ten minutes to get there. Oh, there’s also a “natural slide”, an icy path on the hill that the kids love.

It’s already almost end of the year, time is really flying! In around one month, Carla and Renan are going to have their winter holiday. Seems like only yesterday we had our summer holiday. Summer holiday was a lot of fun, especially since Oma, Opa and Tia Sita came here to visit us in August.
We did a lot of fun things while they were here.
It’s almost end of October, winter is coming soon… Only one or two more weeks left to enjoy the beautiful autumn season, before everything turns white with snow.
The best way to really enjoy autumn is going for a walk through the forest, of course! It feels amazing to walk on a path covered in fallen leaves, surrounded by trees and plants with vibrantly coloured leaves.
Last week I had to go to Calgary for an appointment at US consulate. We decided to use this opportunity to explore the city with the kids.
It was a hot sunny day last Saturday, so we wanted to spend the day at the park. We decided to go to Hawrelak Park, since it was not too far.
Yesterday we went to Muttart Conservatory, an indoor botanical garden in the heart of Edmonton. We actually didn’t really have a plan to go there….
Having spent almost ten years in Singapore, we really had no idea about winter. We knew though, that Canadian winter could be very harsh, so one of the first things we did when we came here was to find out about how to dress properly for winter. As it turned out, dressing for winter is not simply about putting on some sweaters or coats….
