Today was a free for all in the forest, and it was great! Puddle hopping, watching for bear, grouse-spotting and rock clambering! Somebody didn't miss one single puddle-cracking! It was so cold that the puddles were frozen again on the hike back out. This momma should've stretched before such a long hike in the cold, but it was worth it sore muscles and all, now that I have a hot cup of coffee in my hands, it's reading time and listening to the voices of all the littles is pure happiness.
