We haven’t been anywhere fun in a long time. There are a number of reasons for this, and most have to do with the weather. We’re accustomed to long winters here in Minnesota, but for some reason, this year has been particularly trying. After our Good Friday snow, I thought it was safe to finally wash the kids’ snowpants and put them away. I was wrong. On Monday morning, it started snowing again, and this is what we woke up to on April 1.
I am really looking forward to spring. Having room in the trunk again after removing the winter survival gear. Getting the kids buckled into their carseats without the concern of winter coats. Places that were closed for the winter opening up again. Being able to go to parks and other outdoor areas. Outings in the warmer months are just a lot more fun and easier on the mom, it seems.
Some people who’ve read about our adventures have sent me additional suggestions, and I’m eager to get out and see some new places.
If it ever stops snowing, that is.
