Hanging out in the woods

Friends of ours bought some land in Pakenham (Ontario) last spring to build a small camp on, and Chris and I have been heading out there over the past year to hike/snowshoe and help set up – but mostly just to fart around. It is so much fun to go exploring and build forts and stuff. As a kid, my sisters and I were always outside climbing things and playing games. Now as an adult it’s so refreshing get outside and just have fun poking around. Still have yet to find any deer antlers or other treasures, but I’m not giving up hope!

I also shot my first gun last fall, and again this past weekend, completely annihilated a gatorade bottle. Not gonna lie, shooting at targets is pretty fun. Here are some photos from this past weekend, we went to help put in some bridges over a swampy part of the land.

Time flies when you’re having fun!

Wow, I just realized we haven’t written anything in about a month — crazy! So much has been going on it’s been hard to keep up with everything, let alone write about it, but we do apologize.

To sum up our lives for the past month in one post: two of our bestest friends are getting married this Saturday, we had our annual Bon Echo camping trip, and not to mention bachelor and bachelorette parties and showers in abundance, dragon boat practices, and I started running. Although we have been super busy, it has all been so much fun and totally worth it!

The following photos are all from this past month’s activities, enjoy!
