We have nine more weeks of Winter and that has not stopped us from going on country walks around our area of Bath, England. However the shorts, sleeveless shirts, and trainers of our summer attire have had to be replaced by our winter wardrobe. When you are in England I always recommend double checking the weather right before you head out. Check the temperature, the wind, and if rain or snow might be a factor. Next, it is always good to plan your route before hand to give yourself a good time reference for how long you will be out. With your information gathered you can than gauge how to dress appropriately for your country walk. Remember just because you are going for a country walk, does not mean you have to dress frumpy. There are so many fashionable looks from Peter Hahn you can put together for your country walks from practical footwear to appropriate coats.
After going to bed knowing there would be much more snow on the ground, we were all quite excited to wake up and play in it. The boys and I got dressed for the snow and then headed out to get breakfast on the way and a sledge (a sled in the US). We went to the football park nestled in the middle of the town where there were quite a bit of inclines perfect for sledging. We had fun also making snowman, throwing snowballs, and making snow angels. Ryan came and met us after work and by the time we went back home we had been in the snow for three hours! I love being in the snow and I was pleasantly surprised to find the snow was so perfect for so many snowy activities. The boys were very eager to get some hot cocoa back on the way home and talk about all the fun they had in the snow. It was a great way to finish up the weekend.
