This Easter weekend was so great. I didn't have much time to paint or create art because we were outrageously busy having fun with the kids, going out for sight seeing drives, and stopping for adventures along the way.
This is one of my favourite scenic lookout spots. Especially watching the sun go down. You can see for miles. Hampton and Nauwigewauk have the most beautiful breath taking terrain. I consider myself extremely lucky to be so close to such wonders. This day and actually, the entire weekend, was incredibly beautiful and sunny.
It's spring in Canada right now, so the water is super high. It covers all the land that sits in the middle of the rivers. I like to think of it as nature's way of cleansing the earth and ridding the toxins of the year before.
As we set sail on our journey, we, of course, had to stop for a little Tim Hortons treat. I'm pretty addicted to ice capps in the summer, and that addiction usually starts mid to late April, so I'm right on schedule! I know they aren't the healthiest or cheapest, but hey. If I didn't indulge in Tim Hortons deliciousness once a while, what kind of Canadian would I be?
The day had the fluffiest clouds and the bluest sky. The end of winter really is the most uplifting time of year. April is one of my favourite months! And no, not just because this is my birth month.. *cough..the 26th..cough..*
We also visited the local garden center/petting zoo. My daughter loves to feed the ducks and this was our second visit this week. The piglets had just arrived so I also had to get my fix of pure-oinking-sweetness. I desperately want livestock of my own someday, so until then, I will just have to visit them here. 🐽
These little guys (or girls) were a tad timid at first and wouldn't let us pet them. But they eventually warmed up to us once we got the apples out and let them sniff our hands.
There were also several baby goats. Their little furry lips were so soft! I think I must have been a farmer in a past life. I could garden and hang out with farm animals all day.
The more I think about it, the more it amazes me how trees produce air for us to breathe. Science is cool!
The next day, we went on another adventure to a newish thrift shop in the area. It was loaded with all kinds of goodies and I found a bunch of new summer clothes for a steal of a deal. Definitely going back there again soon!
Emma sporting my shades. She is such a kool kat.
Finally, Easter Sunday. The kids were so excited to look for all the hidden eggs from the Easter Bunny. He also brought them a bubble machine! I have never seen so many bubbles in one area in my life. The box says instant bubble storm, and they weren't kidding! My backyard looked like a bubble party. I should host a dance party and bust out this bad boy.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! I'll be finishing up a couple works in progress and starting some new stuff now that the holiday is over that will hopefully be uploaded later in the week. Happy Tuesday! 💗
