The rest of our Canada Adventure...

we went to an amazing indoor market... so many things to do inside this huge market... girls rode along on the wagon... petting zoo.. mini golf.. food... vegetable stands... all in a huge greenhouse! smart!

makes me so happy to see spring bulbs... the scents are amazing... how something that fragrant could be living under ground for the year... the magic is probably just that.... it saves up all year to explode in the spring time... sweet bulbs!

Pappa Mattias was floored when this adorable deer walked right up to him for a nice pat...

then we went for a sledding adventure... in -18degrees... we were so bundled I could barely walk... can you imagine the littles... they hardly noticed... well our oldest enjoyed every minute! youngest... a little tricky to walk that small... :-)

the beauty of winter... the sounds of silence... it's quite lovely actually. everything is so quiet when the snow has fallen... the birds are hiding... the winds are still... it's fantastic... and something wonderful for the girls to experience!

nope we're not back in Florida... but at our hotel we stayed at for my cousin's wedding... gorgeous atrium pool... 80 degrees!

the initial reason for a winter vacation to Canada was my cousin's wedding (I photographed their amazing day!)... but we love a big adventure so why not make a family vacation out of it...

here is the most amazing shot I may have ever photographed... I love the snow and sun.... ahhh takes my breath away!
