If you live in the north, I hope you’ve been able to experience some warmer weather! At the end of this past week, it was in the 50s, which for February, I will take any day! I honestly enjoy winter, but I have to admit, after having a child, and not being able to go outside because it’s below zero, I highly welcome weather in the 20s or 30s or even 50s! On the coldest of days, Mazy will ask to go “side” (outside) and it’s so hard to tell her no. This girl LOVES the outdoors and it’s hard to deny her of it! Thankfully we now have some warmer temps where we can enjoy the outdoors for longer than 5 minutes.
On Friday, we went to the Minnesota Zoo as a family. The forecast predicted near 50, and while we were there, it hit 54! Needless to say, it was the PERFECT day to be there…and someone else thought so too! We thought it would be dead, being the dead of winter, but surprisingly, it was busy! I suppose others has the same idea we did – nice weather=zoo!
Just like her mama, she loves cookie monster from Sesame Street. Her daddy even had cookie monster biking socks, which she now has to wear around the house!
Apparently Mazy once watched Dan hammer in the nails here because she got out the “golf club” Dan made for her and she used it as a hammer. It was so adorable, as she hammered back in, each nail!
Warmer weather means Dan practices fishing in the driveway! Really, it’s quite the sight!
Warmer weather also means lots of melting snow and PUDDLES!
Dan’s a genius! Mazy was begging to go down a slide, that we do not have. Well, he thought of the idea of wrapping up a piece of plywood with tarp, so she could slide down a “slide” in the house. This kept her busy for a good half hour! Now we are trying to think of a way to recreate this for the stairs going into our basement!
