Finally, we got a break from the winter madness of chill and cold and germs. The temperature was balmy and the kids healthy and so we headed out for a Saturday stroll at a local nature center. There were still some patches of snow and ice and some treacherous travels with a toddling child and a bit of a drop off the walkway into the marshes, should one happen to stumble...as toddlers are want to do. But, we made it out without injury or the need for a change of clothes, though more than one child looked in need of a nap. Hoping to return when there is more color in the landscape.
