It is not often that the temp goes above 45 degrees in January in Wisconsin. So, with the temps in the 50s and high 40s the last two days we have been out exploring!
We went to check out a new park.
They just put in the play structure at a park that already had a splash pad and a great trail around a fishing pond. It is a great combination of different type of outdoor play! We can't wait to have picnics there, water play, fishing and exploring!
We have also been doing some hiking.
Avery is loving walking with her hands in her pockets and I think it makes her look like such a big girl! We went and checked out Lake Mendota. The ice is not safe to walk on anymore (someone's fishing shanty and ATV went through this weekend, luckily they weren't hurt!) but it is fun to throw rocks and see if you can get them to break through.
It looks like it is going to be pretty warm for the next few days as well. All of our snow will probably be gone by the end of the week. Sam is super sad that her snow fort is disappearing. I keep telling her that winter isn't over yet and more snow will be here soon...but I am starting to doubt that! Where is out Wisconsin winter?
