Christmas and Boxing Day were so mild this year that, on Boxing Day, we took a break from toys and games and got outside for some fresh air. It was wet after days of rain so, rather than venture into the woods, we walked the trail around the Frog pond.
Oliver was all about the pictures – “Mommy! Take a picture of me between these trees!” (and “on this rock” and etc, etc, etc). Eleanor was all about … well, being Eleanor. Sweet as usual. Emery was all about climbing trees! He was having a ball until a slight misjudge turned into a scrape on his back. And of course what’s good for one is probably good for all three kids… err, I mean the boys and papa.
It was a lovely walk and good for everyone to get some fresh air and take a break from Christmas. Last year we took a walk in Point Pleasant Park on Boxing Day so perhaps we have started a tradition!
