If You Can't Beat 'Em--Adventures in Winter

I am growing weary of winter, like most of you.  I tend to hibernate and watch from inside as much as possible, but Saturday I had a change of heart.  You see, I had new snow pants to keep me warm, and temperatures in the 20s and not teens.  Also, there were activities to watch.  I bundled up, then bundled up the Little Nugget, and off we went.

She didn't seem to mind, especially with the plastic cover for the stroller.  Mom, really, I kept checking, and her hands were warm!  You know, Missourians, they think I'm torturing the child, but Mary-Claire is hearty Wisconsin stock.  She knows no better!

Our little village was celebrating Winterfest, because really, if you have no other choice, you might as well celebrate, eh?
There were sled dog demonstrations - maybe we will ride in a couple of years!

And yes, the idiotic Polar Bear Plunge (at least idiotic to me!)

We kept warm and had fun.  Mary-Claire actually had a couple of naps.  They do say you sleep better when it's cool, right?

Yes, it was fun, and I wasn't cold.  Maybe I will venture out again soon. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?

Just waiting for the next batch of snow!
