Most often that not it's the simple things in life that give the most pleasure- gin, ice cream, chocolate.  Sorry I mean simple things with the kids, the gin and ice cream are a whole different post. 

This weekend we packed up the supplies and headed off to Elk Island.  Here a few details from the Parks Canada Web Site;
Located less than an hour away from Edmonton, Elk Island National Park of Canada protects the wilderness of the aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. This beautiful oasis is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. Also boasting over 250 species of birds, the park is a bird watcher's paradise. Be it for wildlife viewing, hiking, cross-country skiing, picnicking or overnight camping, there is something for everyone at Elk Island National Park.

The scenery is fab and the place is quiet- until we rocked up!  We set fire to some wood and cooked our lunch.

Followed by a spot of toasted marshmallows. 

The kids loved it, as did we.
