203: killbear

You may or may not have noticed that I've been missing for a few days! Sam's been picking up the slack here at the blog & keeping you updated, while I've been away on a mini-vacation for 5 days!

I went camping up at Killbear Provincial Park here in Ontario with Matt & some friends from Stratford. Being from the most densely populated part of Canada, I love that Northern Ontario is SO beautiful and scenic. It's just awesome to get away from the bustle of the city to go enjoy nature for a little while... even if it means sleeping on an air mattress in a tent ;)

This was our 4th annual camping trip with these friends & I think our trips stand out just because we always cook amaaaaazing meals. We do the usual camping things, like taking hikes & checking out beaches, and the boys usually canoe around & fish.

Check out some of my photos from my weekend away!


the drive up through the Canadian Shield is so gorgeous because of the rock formations at the sides & dividing the highway. Not only that, but people have built hundreds of "inukshuks" from rocks that greet you on the way :)






mini mouse!


big breakfasts are my FAVE. mmmm.






there are awesome rocks up there. The cliffs that look grey & slate black just have stripes & sections of white & pink quartz crystals peeking out.




doe, a deer!


glamping ;)


the boys caught a ton of crayfish in their minnow traps to use as live bait!


marinated cajun chicken, prosciutto wrapped asparagus & potatoes with onions and garlic.




gorgeous clouds


matt & i during the sunset!

I basically took today off to sort through the photos to post on facebook & to send to friends, but back to the grind tomorrow! Missed you, internets ♥!

    hahah yeah, we carefully plan our menu so we have awesome 3 course dinners & giant breakfasts. I'm not built for "roughing it" so I try to make everything similar to the comforts at home ;) lol
