We spent the last weekend in July celebrating 'Christmas' in a more Canadian way than we're accustomed to...with snow! Along with my sister and co. and some other friends, we visited Mount Donnabuang and toboggoned (not me! I was already big enough that I could've rolled down the hill equally as fast!), played in the snow, built snowmen and ate lots of pre-prepared goodies including Pizza Rossa from Apples for Jam; mmmmmmm...yum!
Initially, Elsa didn't quite know what to make of the snow or the slap-hazard snow outfit we conjured up for her (a combination of some borrowed snow gear and her wet-weather all-in-one!) but it didn't take long before she had her hands full of snow and was (cautiously) riding on the toboggan with her uncle. In true Dot form though, she really did prefer to sit back and watch...and giggle at her cousins as they sped down the toboggan run. Hopefully we'll do this day trip again next winter. It's good to get a little more Canadiana (even if Aussie in style) in Elsa's life, even if the snow wasn't quite the same as the type her Dada grew up with.
