Happy Family Day!


I saw plenty of families skiing and having fun at the Earl Bales Park ski run recently. There's only one hill here and it's pretty gentle, so it's a good place for the youngsters to learn.

Happy Family Day to all my Canadian friends! And to the rest, happy Monday!

As Family Day - I actually had to look it up, as I didn't know about it - is only marked in 3 Canadian provinces, a lot of your Canadian friends won't be celebrating. I appreciate the thought though! :D

Paul, you mean other provinces have this Family Day? I though it was only McGuinty's invention!
But, Happy Family Day back at you, Halcyon.

Looks like a great place to start! I went snowboarding for the first time last year and couldn't move the next day. haha :D

I just saw this "family fun day" on EG Wow's site. What a wonderful idea! Incidentally, I agree with you re word verification, and we're not the only ones. I've gone to the Google Help site and lodged my complaint along with many others!

What a great holiday. I could handle this hill as it has been too many years since I've skied.

EG Wow said...

It looks like my kind of hill. :))

Perhaps it would be a gentle enough hill for aged persons to learn, should I ever make it to Toronto in the winter?

Just love that city skyline backdrop, makes the photo special! The new word Verification is driving everyone nuts. I usually have 3-4 goes before I get one that I can read!

that's a pretty scene
a gentle hill is a good thing for little ones and clumsy ones like me

It looks like a gentle hill indeed. My skis are put away, probably forever, but even I could be lured out on this small hill if I had to.

Sounds like a fun day.

You wouldn't want to see «Louis» on skis! It would either be the most hysterically funny or the most appallingly horrible thing you've ever seen!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
