You may recall the last time we chatted I was really excited that we had some new fresh snow. Since then we’ve had even more of that fluffy white stuff and so we’ve spent a good chunk of every day out playing in the snow.
No, we haven’t built any snow men, not even a snow fort, but we have been out for a good long walk in the woods, in the snow, every day.
Why are we so excited with snow you ask? You need to remember we started our life together in Edmonton, Alberta. I’m sure you’ll agree that that’s the perfect spot to learn to enjoy outdoor winter activities. In fact, in northern Alberta you learn a lot about enjoying long, long winters.
And for most of the last 10 years our winters have been all about travels to escape Canadian winters. This year it’s kind of a treat to drag out the toque and warm mittens.
Angel loves playing in the snow. She says it reminds her of sandy beaches.
The dirty, grimy brown of late fall is now covered with a fresh clean blanket of white snow.
All that changes tomorrow though, as temperatures are to rise well above the freezing mark and stay there for a few days. Later in the week we may well be faced with lots of ice on all the trails.
