Lately we had been going through a January thaw and have lost a majority of our snow. There was a hint of Spring in the air and it was wonderful. And then...back it came which of course we expected. Snow squall watches and warnings and slippery roads. Thursday morning was gorgeous as we had heavy, wet snow and all the trees were coated. It was beautiful. Unfortunately, I didn't have time for photos.
Today, snow has been falling quietly and steadily throughout the day, there wasn't even a hint of a breeze in the air. I had been wanting to get Lily and Katie out for a walk so I thought what better time to go than when it's a winter wonderland.
Katie loves her walks so she ran ahead then waited patiently for us to catch up. Once we were close, she took off running again.
Lily always has to climb up on the picnic table whenever we go for a stroll. I didn't expect her to do this in the winter but you know how insistent a 3 year old can be. So up she went.
The pond hasn't completely frozen over since the thaw.
This is the mini marsh (the frog pond), behind the main pond.
And here comes Katie. Running...
And running...she's having a great time.

As we were heading back, Katie decided to take a much needed rest.
I hope you enjoyed your winter walk with us. It wasn't that cold out today which was nice but I looked like the abominable snow monster by the time we went back into the house.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you come again. I always love reading your comments.
