It has felt like winter for more than a month so Emmy is very confused by today being the first day of winter.
We went to NCAR for a hike to celebrate the winter solstice. It was a bit cold and very windy, I was shocked that the kids didn’t complain at all.
We love this hike in the summer and winter time! You just need to be careful this time of year because ice can be hiding under the dirt in shady places.
Last year when we hiked here it was a struggle to get Emmy to hike more than a mile and now she is loving doing 3-4 miles.
We have lots of hiking/adventure trips planned this year and are going to work on getting up to 6 mile hikes.
We would have liked to go even further but we had to get ready for our upcoming storm and I had a doctor appointment in the afternoon.
we aren’t even getting that much snow but with windchill temperatures could drop to negative 50 and we just aren’t used that that. Cannon’s holiday school party and performance have been canceled and Emmy’s friend’s birthday party also had to be postponed due to the cold weather. We just aren’t used to it being THIS cold!
It was 50 degrees when I went into my appointment and when I left 50 minutes later it had dropped to 14 degrees!
Are you getting hit with frigid weather right now too?
Did you do anything to celebrate the solstice? We usually try to get out in so something to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Summer Solstice Hike
