That is the kind of insight you’re going to get around here at Bike, Banjo and Baby. Challenges are challenging and water is wet; that sort of thing.
I’ve realized that although I’m a reasonably outdoorsy person who likes hiking and canoeing and camping and such, it’s actually quite difficult to get outside for half an hour every single day of a month when you have a little person with you at all times. Even when the weather that month is unusually warm and dry, you still encounter days with torrential rain or gale-force winds. Babies do not like being outside in torrential rain or gale-force winds. Other days you just get busy with errands and baby art classes (that is messy, messy business, by the way) and laundry and cooking and you just run out of day.
For the most part, I’ve managed to keep up with the David Suzuki Foundation’s 30/30 Challenge. I’ve taken photos (whenever I’ve remembered to pack the camera) to document our outdoor time . Here are some highlights.
Unfortunately, I did forget the camera when C and I went to an outdoor baby yoga class, and again on Father’s Day when the three of us went for a hike on the Bruce Trail. I’ll try to be more diligent for the second half of June.
In the meantime, check out David Suzuki’s Flickr group and all the gorgeous photos these outdoorsy Canadians have been posting.
