After the seemingly endless winter weather that we’ve had over here, I was elated this past weekend as spring finally came.
We took a walk to town through the woods and were having a grand time just looking at these leaf buds. The birds were also singing and the air smelled so fresh.
We then went to feed the ducks and the swans.
And of course the trip wouldn’t be complete without a quick stop at the playground.
Right now, a lot of visits and weekend trips are already planned. On top of that, we will have to put in a lot of work with our house landscaping too. With too many activities planned and with relatively short time, I am now beginning to understand why Czechs really love the outdoors.
My son is now sick. I think it’s my fault. I must’ve overindulged him in too much snow. I did get what I wished for. We had a good amount of snow these past few days.
After seeing this much snow from my son’s bedroom window, it was only natural for him to want to go outside and play.
So last Friday, I took him out for a long walk in the woods.
It was -4C that day, but the cold did not seem to bother us. We were having fun! We crossed the woods to get to the other part of town. Everytime we find a little inclined space, we take advantage in sliding downhill on his sled.
By the time we got home, he was literally spent. He didn’t even wait to get to his room. He just crashed on the sofa.
This past weekend, we went skating with some friends. Because he is still too young to skate, we placed my son on a sled so he can still enjoy the ice with us. It was very cool. Unfortunately, that didn’t do him well. He got cold. And because he was also tired, getting sick was inevitable.
Now I am nursing him back to health. Hopefully, we can cut the “down time” so we can enjoy the snow all over again.
