knowing that the temperature is going to fall almost thirty degrees by the end of the week, we've tried to enjoy the outside as much as possible yesterday and today. yesterday i loaded everyone and the double stroller up and we went for a walk on a nearby trail. the perfect activity. everyone could be as loud as they wanted – at one point leighton was pretty much shouting her renditions of "jesus loves me" and the alphabet song – and they could run ahead of me without fear of getting hit by a car. because it was a weekday, there weren't many people out so there was little worry of them getting hit by a bicycle either. the two walkers we passed thought we were quite the sight, i'm sure.
today we went on a walk in our neighborhood and made a pitstop at the park. and then played outside with the neighbors when we got home. three happy kiddos and one happy mama. trying to soak in each and every last drop of sunshine before hibernation occurs.
did i mention our overnight low on saturday will be 25 degrees? apparently leighton is ready as she asked me when it was going to snow twice today.
