I’m not gonna lie, it’s hard for me to motivate to take the kids on long walks when it’s cold out. I live in the middle of the mountains in Colorado at about 7,000′ elevation, and usually when it snows here, it really snows. Getting that bundled up to struggle to push a double stroller through the mountains of snow… meh. No thanks.
Luckily for me and my exercise plan, the snow we’ve gotten thus far all decided to melt away, and we were able to take a gorgeous family walk together on Sunday that we timed around the kids’ midday nap. We did a 5 mile loop that took us by the local park (where Jaime’s memorial bench is located – decorated for Christmas by my MIL) and around the edge of town and back home. Not too shabby of a day for December 7th in the mountains!
