I've lived in Michigan my entire life and I can honestly say I've always enjoyed winter...until I had two small children. It is very hard to be cooped up indoors for weeks and months with two little kids. Even going out to Bible study or the library doesn't really make me feel like we've "gotten out." It is also much harder to winter indoors with two kids than it is with one; there is a huge change in our mobility and "bundle-up-ability" between now and last year when there was only Liesl. So this weekend's (slightly) warmer weather and sunny skies were a welcome sight. We all bundled up--including Ava--and went out for a much-needed breath of fresh air both Saturday and Sunday.
Liesl just loves to bundle up and go outside.
My thumbs! They've stolen my thumbs!
