We live in a small Northern Michigan town with short beautiful Lake Michigan summers and LONG cold winters!  Thankfully, we have raised our boys to love the outdoors and embrace the cold snowy winters!

Food allergies aside, it is very important as a parent to teach your children about living a healthy lifestyle which includes exercise and admiring the beauty of nature.  Most importantly, combining the two with fun outdoor activities as a family!

We are a downhill ski family and love to ski together frequently. However, it’s great to mix up the winter outdoor activities with our boys and enjoy a fun experience snowshoeing from time to time. Our boys not only love snowshoeing in the outdoors, but it’s good quality time well spent with our boys, and our dog Scout gets to run freely and it keeps him in shape also.

So if you live in a winter wonderland like we do, don’t forget to include your children in your fun outdoor activities this winter! Enjoy the snow and have a great weekend!
