Last weekend we found a not-too-cold day in the midst of all this January weather and took a nice walk outside with the family. It rained a week or so before that and what was left of the snow was so frozen it was really easy to walk on – we didn’t even have to stay on the trail (which we didn’t because we rarely do). And it was just a few degrees below zero so ideal temps and no one was cold.
This is how we spent the afternoon of our ritual Superbowl/birthday day which, by the way, is probably my favorite day of the year. It was only made better by these couple of hours enjoying the outside.
We’re quite the crew!
Even Emery had an easy time getting around on this snow! Oliver loves being outside. Period. He loved being able to leave the trail and run wherever he wanted to. Sleepy Aaliyah… she was with us for most of the
King of the Castle with papa. Or King of the Mountain, as Oliver calls it. I’m not sure who has more fun horsing around… the boys or papa. It is days like these that remind me why I love winter. Funny how they come just when you’re getting tired of the bitter cold keeping you inside.
