Today was my last day off until New Years. Steve had to work so it was just me and Jo. We decided to do one of our favorite things: go for a hike. We had a great day. We hiked for about an hour through the forest to the beach, where the wikkiup from our summer hike was still standing. We started a campfire, had a warm lunch in our shelter from the cold rain, and then hiked back as the rain turned to the first real snowfall of the year.
By the time we got home, Steve was back and the snow was starting to collect on the ground. Jonas was eager to give his new sled a try so, after another warming bowl of turkey soup, he put on his snow pants and coat and headed out the door for some more outdoor fun, while I shot some pictures. He arrived home after the sun had set with a huge, wonderful smile on his face. It was a day neither of us will ever forget!
