As the weather has been really bad here this weekend we decided to cancel our planned trip. It has been raining non stop for the last 48 hours or so. You could not go out the door without getting wet to the skin. The temperature hovered around 0C, so it was not an ideal time to go outside. We have stayed at home wearing pajamas, playing boardgames, and fired in the furnace. Quite cosy actually. We could have gone on a trip, but I know from experience that nothing kills the love of going out in the forest is being wet even before you have arrived in it. For an adult going out in the rain and bad weather can be a nice change, to see the beauty of nature in all its different aspects. Its not that easy when you’re a kid, its so fun rolling in the snow and jumping in puddles, and when it has been so wet as it has been here the last few days, a day out soon turns wet and cold.Then the kids will not enjoy being outside without the possibility to go inside and get dry. So then we hope for a better opportunity later.
And we did have some fun, since it was mothers day, the boys and I got to bake brownies for breakfast, and with some ice cream, that was a real winner for the boys. Lets hope that the next weekend will give us better weather, it is no problem with -20C, if it is dry we will have a blast.
