🌲If you go out to the woods today 🎢 You better wear some of this magical outdoor spray! @lesproduitsdemaya's all natural olive oil based insect repellent works to keep away mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies, ticks, and more! Plus it moisturizes AND stays on the skin a little longer through sweat, rain and tears!

6 down 5 to go! πŸ‘£ Today we completed our fifth and sixth hikes of the Frontenac Challenge and they were a lovely change of pace on account of the heat wave!

MY FIRST GIANT PUFFBALL MUSHROOM! Which obviously merits a wee gallery instead of just one photo. Check it out! Swipe to see my hand for size comparison, Huckleberry and I getting up close, and my first ever mushroom selfie! Haha, I was just a tad excited about it. And I regret not dressing it up with a hat and some glasses, lol. What creative name can YOU come up with for this fun-guy or fun-gal? Name all of my other mushrooms, too!

On account of the extreme heat warning, we're swapping our planned 17km hike for a 4.5km hike instead, with some seriously lakeside hanging in the shade. How are you getting outside in this weather? 🌲 Ps. Grab one of these beautiful, soft, lightweight hammocks from @madera_outdoor / @hammocksneedtrees and plant two trees with your purchase! Use the code MMLL40 for 40% off.

F o l l o w 🌿 F r i d a y Here we go again for another Follow Friday – I love finding new accounts to follow and love when they come to me on #followfriday. So it's time again to jump in and tell you who I love to follow. First of all, I've been loving all of the photos on @raiseheroutdoors' feed. So today you'll find some beautiful girls being raised outdoors. These four outdoorsy mamas (and their kiddos) inspire me daily with their big and small adventures. They fill my feed with happy, funny, honest accounts of getting outdoors with kids. And all of their photos are set against stunning backdrops that make me itch to explore more of this beautiful planet! Show them some love and you won't regret it!

He loves his new Giesswein indoor/outdoor wool slippers/shoes so much that he insisted on wearing them to bed! And they stayed on all night long, working with his merino wool jammies to keep him a comfortable temperature in this heat wave. Wool for the win! πŸ‘ Check out @_wooliscool_ for more on these avocado-coloured Oberstaufen slippers/shoes, made in Austria. They are easy for toddlers to put on themselves, and they have a waterproof rubber outsole for tearing around outside.
