Walking Does Us Good

This week's springlike weather has been much needed.  We were tired of the cold.  The snow.  The wet.  Taking a walk as a family was a great way to get out and enjoy the weather, to unwind, to get excited about the thought of spring.

The four year old wanted to "explore the forest" so we went out to the farm and into the woods.

They had to see what they could find.  

Daddy, what's inside?

They found "hiking sticks" and went down into the woods.

 While they explored, I stayed up with the baby in the stroller.

We played peek-a-boo and chattered baby talk for awhile.  Then we turned around and headed back up the hill, out of the woods, and back into the sunshine where it was warmer.  I talked to Elliott via walkie talkie. 

We waited for the boys to return, before heading home.  

Momma, look what we found!

Just a peaceful afternoon.  Walking.  Nature Study.  Enjoying our time together.  Making memories.

  1. We're still buried under snow and ice, but it's getting warmer and wetter out there every day with the beautiful weather we have been having lately! The kids are outside right now, and will come inside completely soaked :) You've inspired me to go out and enjoy the sunshine too! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Sometimes we just have to get out in the snow too! Hope you thaw out soon. ;)

  2. This is the best way to spend a peaceful afternoon. Looks like it was a great for being outside.

    1. It was a lovely day, and such a wonderful family activity!
