Aurora Farmers Market & Artisan Fair, Winter Get Away

-

Right after our breakfast almost every Saturday we are out of the house. Today we visited the indoor Aurora Farmers’ Market & Artisan Fair at the Aurora Cultural Centre. We had plans for public skating at the Town Park but there was a bit too much snow. It looked like people skating at the park brought their own shovels to move the snow out of their way.

Getting outside is a must on the weekends. If we don’t make a point to get out on the weekend, I tend to clean the house and everyone else never sees or smells the fresh air. We are pleased that there is always something to do locally in the Town of Aurora, just like the winter themed Aurora Farmers Market.

Definitely a snow day today! And here is something to think about – we can’t tell our children not to touch the snow.

I needed my six year old free of snow. All he needed to do is march from the doorsteps to the car door and hop into the car. I warned him, “you can’t touch the snow.” I must have said it a million times. My six year old followed the order very well and he even told me “I will just step on the snow for a bit. Just like that Mom,” and he showed me standing on a small patch of snow. “And possibly what could go wrong?” I thought. Okay a bit of snow on the boots will not hurt.

In less than a minute I packed everything in the trunk and when I turned around I saw him. Yes, his hands were plunged into the snowbank deep enough to almost touch his face. The “don’t touch the snow” warning never works. I curiously asked, “what was going through your mind, I asked you not to get snow on your gloves, they do get wet fast.”

I don’t know,” was his reply.
