A Cozy Winter Camping Experience at Silent Lake Provincial Park

Silent Lake Provincial Park winter
We love camping at Ontario Parks in the summer, which allows us to enjoy the serene outdoors and all the wonderful things we can do in the warm weather - thinking of it makes me miss summer! We have also learned to embrace the beauty of winter; the fresh cool air, soft snow, the beauty of trees covered with white snow, and all the fun activities we can do in the winter from skiing, tobogganing to snowshoeing and more. 
Silent Lake Provincial Park winter
When we travel in winter to enjoy the festive season or to explore winter themed events and activities, we usually stay in hotels. We tried winter camping in one of the roofed accommodations at Ontario Parks, which is truly a lovely way to get close to nature, away from the everyday hustle and bustle.

Lacy Ripples Blanket

lacy ripples blanket
This lacy ripples blanket measures 122 x 131 cm using 4 ply medium wool and a 5.5 mm crochet hook. Our completed blanket measures about 150 cm by 140 cm, as it depends on the type of wool and the tension. We can use any combination of wool, I used 2 balls of each of these three colour. The wool I used was the Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo 14 oz 744 yards. This design is from Bernat yarn.

Cozy Up With Your Family to Watch These Fun Movies on Netflix

With many of us in our back to school routine finding the time to watch a show together as a family becomes even more special. Cozying up during a cool and rainy evening with warm snacks, popcorn, and a blanket is lots of fun. My family and I love talking about movies and shows after we watch them. We enjoy talking about the memorable parts, and what we think about certain parts of the show that were funny or sad.

Drive-In Movie Theatres

I have never watched a movie in a drive-in movie theatre, but have seen many movies where people go to drive-in theatres, which looks like a fun experience I would want to try. In the 1950s, Canada has had over 250 drive-in theatres and they were the hottest ticket in town. In recent years, more than 4,000 drive-ins have gone dark across North America. It’s not too late share the joy of the drive-in movies with your family and friends at one Canada’s 50 remaining outdoor screens. Grab a blanket and catch a movie under the stars before summer ends or, add a stop on your fall road trip.
