    Hi, my favorite family day activity is to tack up horses, and go for a ride outside, in the crisp winter air. It’s absolutely beautiful when it snows with the horses, then we make horse treats, and hand them out. My daughter loves this part the most, we then groom and then go for a walk, mudslide is her favorite pony. After a day with the horses we come home and make a nice soup and grilled cheese for dinner to warm us up, then cuddle in with popcorn and a great movie.

    The best way to spend Family Day is having fun with my grandchildren – ideally outside sledding, having a bonfire, roasting hot dogs, making S’mores, and sipping hot chocolate!

    Spending time with my family is the best way to spend family day. Doing a puzzle with my granddaughter, taking the dogs for a walk and then having a big family dinner.

    Playing with my grandkids (and their parents!), going for a walk and then doing a craft with them while sipping hot chocolate!
