A beautiful mess...

The picture doesn't quite capture it, but i'm just glad they were playing outside!! this winter i want to encourage at least 2 hours of outdoor play each day, some in the morning and in the afternoon. i think it would do us all a lot of good, and my house won't get as trashed :)

of course that amount of time isn't hard when it's nice out, but in the winter unless there's snow on the ground, they don't want to go out much. i want them to learn that once you get bundled up and get out there, you get used to the cold and you can have just as much fun as when it's warm. Plus it really feels good once you come back in.

and if mommy pretends she likes to be outside in the winter, that might help too!
