a warm january day

We went for a long walk through the prairie this afternoon.  I may have done the dumbest move in parenting history when my daughter asked to take a nap (asked I tell you!) and I said, "Nope, we're going for a walk!"   Now, she of course is wide awake singing the alphabet song instead of sleeping, but our walk was well worth it.  The sun was shining and we found a bear cave (the underground tunnel for the bike path) that we had to run through at least ten times.  We've been kind of stuck inside this weekend as Everdeen is recovering from a nice bout with pink eye.  I always feel that no matter what ailment you have you will always feel better with fresh air and warm sunshine. And it's always a good idea to soak up these rare, warm, January days before the next cold spell sweeps over us.
