This weather won't last all week, so we made for the Arboretum today while the gettin' was good.
Progress report: first four person hike without a stroller. (Although, the fact that I can actually bring a stroller on these trails makes me question, does it still count as a "hike"?) I did bring the Ergo, though, and Waylon was happy to ride on the way back, despite all photographic evidence to the contrary. Of course, seeing one person get a ride makes others whine that their legs and feet hurt, though, so maybe I should've just brought the stroller. Still - we had a great time. Pretty much the only benefit of a harsh winter as I see it is that it makes you REALLY appreciate signs of warmth and the change of seasons. Notice that despite temps eking into the low 60's, there was still significant snow lingering in the children's garden. I guess it's going to take a while.
(Maybe he didn't like Georgia taking our picture? I swear he was happy as a clam up there.)
