Sharing some Fall Traditions

If you’ve never seen an Ottawa Fall, you’re missing out! It’s definetely such a great time to live in Canada! Though I hate that the cold is coming, the Fall colours are absolutely magical! As a rule, we try to go for a special outing to look at the Fall colours with the kids and this year- we checked out Gatineau Hills for the Fall Rhapsody Festival. There are tons of walking trails, beautiful Look-Outs and our favourite Mackenzie King Estates. We took tons of photo’s of the kids playing in the leaves and posing by the ruins. I thought I’d share a few of our Thankgiving photo’s with you!

Here’s a photo overlooking the water at Mackenzie King Estates near the boat house. Aren’t the colours pretty?!

Here’s me and my darlings posing for Dad:

The next day was TURKEY DAY!!! Yummy! We decided to start a new Tradition of giving this year…my oldest daughter and I made homemade Candy Apples and packaged them, made a cute stamped tag and then delivered the apples to 8 of our neighbours. It was really fun to stop by and catch up with people we hadn’t necessarily seen in a while. My kids would ring the door bell and say: "Happy Thankgiving" and then give them the Candy Apple. Some of the people thought we were selling them. My kids and I called it "reverse-Halloween". Here’s a cute photo of my daughter after we got them all made:


Thanks for reading! Just thought I’d share some of our fun this week! 🙂


We Love to Hear From You
