Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!  I hope you all have a nice weekend full of eating turkey and potatoes and pie, oh my!!

On Friday the kiddies had a P.A.Day so we grabbed our passports and headed south of the border for some geocaching and sightseeing.  This was the first time our kids have been to the USA so they were pretty excited to see how things are different or the same as Canada.  One thing we all noticed was the amount of American flags there were, on every house, every building, every guard rail post, and even right out in the middle of nowhere.  Americans sure are patriotic, something Canadians only practice when it comes to the Stanley Cup playoffs or the olympics.  We headed over to Letchworth State Park, I got the idea from an old friend of mine from highschool.  She is very much an adventuress, there is nothing she won’t do and no place she won’t go,  she inspires me to get outside and see what the world has to offer.  April, if you’re reading this…thank you for inspiring me to be more adventurous!

So off we went, driving down country roads through quaint little towns clad with American flags and faded swags hanging over the porch railings, I’m guessing left over from Independence Day.  The country side was absolutely breathtaking, rolling hills and valleys with all the warm beautiful colours autumn has to offer.

The picture above is of one of the many waterfalls that Letchworth State Park has to offer.  I can’t wait to make another trip there, the park is so big that there is no way we could have done it all in a day.  We’ve had an awesome weekend and I hope all of you have too.

I am sure I have mentioned it before but I think it’s worth mentioning again; my other hobby is geocaching, it’s fun, adventurous, good exercise and gets your family working on something together, and best of all it’s CHEAP!   If you would like to know more about it go to http://www.geocaching.com …all you need is a GPS (not the kind that you suction to the windshield of your car, the other kind), a computer so you can search for the geocaches in the area you’d like to go to, and believe me you’ll be surprised at how many caches there are all over the world, don’t forget to pack a snack and some water because you get hungry fast when your out in the wilderness.

Until next Sunday…
