“Winter”

We got brave and went on a family hike on November 11th. The hike wasn't long, just over a mile, but sometimes those little legs give out! That morning was foggy and so the trees were gorgeous with frost. I was so happy to get outside and enjoy a trail I haven't been on in a while. I so appreciate where we live, there are quite a few beautiful hikes close by.

I took the littles tobogganing one afternoon and goodness, they could've gone all afternoon! They did so great at taking turns pulling the sled up the hill and sitting in the front. I had to walk Maeve up the hill each time so I got my workout in. Afterwards, hot chocolate with marshmallows.

The first snow of the year is always magical (even if it did rudely ruin fall). I think my very favorite thing about the first snow is how much time the kiddos spend playing in it! It's a major Mom win! The snow stuck around for quite some time too allowing for all sorts of fun!

One of my favorite things we've done this winter is skate on a local pond. It was so fun and easy. Under the ice we could see a frozen turtle and a frozen frog. Maeve really loves to be outdoors, so even though she was chilly in the stroller, she had a lovely time! I love getting on skates and having a childhood of memories come flooding in!

I was so happy when it finally snowed! And now it's pretty much all gone. But, we got out there and enjoyed it. I wish it was still a winter wonderland. We only have just over a month left to enjoy winter before we travel to an eternal spring time in Ecuador! So bring on the snow!
