Day 8 Goes Downhill

You could say that today’s activity went straight down hill but the engineer would argue that we also went up hill.

For today’s activity was to enjoy an outdoor activity. So we bundled up because at -21 (-29 windchill) that was necessary but it’s a lot of work with a little one!

Grampa got the GT slider out and sat on it with her. Instant tears that didn’t stop until the end. So then I took her for a shorter ride with the same results. She declined a third ride in favour of going to see the kitties.

A lovely little visit with the cats where Little A made appropriate sounds and tried to hug them. Then we decided we would do a quick walk to at least feel like all the clothes were worth the effort.She heard the cows but they were too far away to see. We played on the big rock for a few seconds and then we tromped back inside. It wasn’t a stellar win but we got some fresh air.

I’m know that once Little A is back home there will be a walk or a snow shoe around the big pond and around the trees and fences. The sunshine, blue skies and remaining frost make it so enticing that the temp doesn’t matter much to me.

The strange thing is I’m talking about a Continue reading
