    Today was the first time me and Levi got to have a boys day out so we decided to go "hiking" and have some lunch with a fire. We went to Fish Creek provincial Park which runs right through Calgary. Aside from hearing some vehicles you would never know you are in the middle of a million people

    no outing would be complete without ample time for throwing rocks

    I'm glad my boots hold off a lot of water, my smart wool took care of the rest

    Found myself a nice spot to sit

    Fantastic. I don't think there is any better family bonding than hitting the woods. Keep up the good work!

    Now he needs a pocket knife. :)

    No actually I'm kidding. He's still a little guy.

    Great post.
