A Winter Walk - January 17, 2011

Last year, we had snow.
This year we don't.
So last year we went for walks in the snow.
This year we can't... Not that I'm really complaining about it!
So these pictures are from last year... when we did have snow!

This is our friend, and former farm worker, Dougie... Last year he and his family went for walks with us in the snow, but this year he can't. IMG_1836-2 copy 2

Dougie has since moved on to bigger and better pastures. He joined the Navy and is now in Texas going to school... there's no snow in Texas either. That is Dougies sister Estelle... she goes for walks too.

Dougie had snow shoes on... Webster was coveting his snow shoes.

So Dougie, not being stingy, let Webster use them.

Dougie helps Webster put them on.

Dougie and Estelles Mother is the walking ring leader. She is in the middle... sorta like Monkey in the middle, but not quite.

Hmmm...What is that speck on the path behind us?

Uh-oh... I think we have a soldier down

Really though... Webster needed to soldier down.
You see, he wasn't happy that we weren't feeling sorry for his young little legs being tired and we kept walking, leaving him in the dust... or... snow.

But we did wait for him to catch up... which was very motherly of me don't you think?

I don't seem to think wearing snow shoes makes walking any easier?

I think Dougie is checking the map to see where we are... and he is saying we are lost.

Just kidding, we weren't lost.

It is really awesome that our town has it's own forest with walking trails... I think all towns should have their own forests.
Wouldn't that be cool?

I like this picture of Webster that I took... he looks like he is sleeping... and he is so calm and quiet when he is sleeping.

That's why I really do like this picture.
