Just because winter is on the way, it does not mean you should stop exploring. Winter road trips can be so much fun! Not only are many destinations more picturesque in winter, they often offer off-season rates, additional outdoor activities and an opportunity to explore by skiing, snowshoes, sleigh ride and more.
Taking time to connect as a family is something I really did not realize we needed, at least not until we did it.
Have you ever attended the Moncton Highland Games? We did this year, and will be back again next year for their 13th year!
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. We love day trips, weekend adventures and to explore Atlantic Canada.
We are sharing mainly our weekend wanderings, day trips within 2-3 hours of Moncton, NB (where we are from), and some longer adventures we have had in Atlantic Canada.
Any other travel will be shared in the appropriate categories.

In April, Doug, Clayton and I spent a night in Halifax and used our time exploring downtown. We have been to Halifax many times as a family, staying in Dartmouth, Bedford and Bayer's Lake areas. This trip we stayed at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront.
As part of our Halifax weekend getaway in April, we visited the Discovery Centre for the first time in it's new location. WOW!!
"The Discovery Centre is a not-for-profit registered charitable organization whose mission is to bring STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) to life through fun, interactive learning experiences." ~ thediscoverycentre.ca
Visiting the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax NS
The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is a regular stop for us when visiting Halifax, NS. I can't count how many times we have visited, and each time we all have a good time reading, watching, playing and exploring.

This past weekend my husband, Doug, and I managed to go out for a date. Other than work related night's out, I can not remember the last time the two of us actually went out without the children. In the past we have always relied on family to babysit, but our oldest is perfectly capable to babysit now, so we decided it was time to have an evening together, out of the house, and away from the kiddos!

Our Weekend Wanderings took us to Charlottetown, PEI, in late February. We packed up the car with our family of 4 and were on the road to the Jack Frost Children's Winterfest. Only a few hours from Moncton, this was the perfect weekend adventure. For this particular adventure, we left Moncton around noon on Friday and arrived back home Sunday at suppertime. Our VIP Package included hotel stay for 2 nights, welcome bag for the kids upon arrival, snacks each night (if you are at the hotel at the time), breakfast with various kids show characters and early access to the sites each day.
