  1. We have been doing some hiking as we have relatives that live in Canmore Alberta, right in the mountains! We also love going for bike rides and nature walks! Swimming as well!!

  2. We are liimited now to what we can do. We used to love riding bikes but no longer can as my son has too many seizures regularly and unexpected so now we go for nature walks as they are safer in case he seizes

    Flag Football – what a great idea – since it doesn’t feel like exercise – more apt to follow. Great family fun – exercise and family fitness doesn’t have to be a five letter word – SWEAT.

  4. We’ve been having so much fun with fall activities! Hiking, walking, playing backyard sports. I find it easier to lots of running around outdoors now that it is cooler!
