Adventures in the snow

It is WARM today!!! 

If you consider 30 degrees warm, I guess it is all relative when the past week has been in the single digits! 

Our youngest farm boys had cabin fever and
 so did I.  

So I left the pile of laundry on the couch and the hundred other things I need to do today. 

Instead bundled up to go exploring with the boys. 

First we checked out the pond and dock.

My sweet Farmer and Kids built it this fall. 
I can just picture warm summer afternoons fishing and swimming in the pond!

Next we went out in the berry field.  
Rows and Rows of dormant Raspberry and Blackberry plants.  

It is hard to believe that a few short months ago these were lush green bushes full of blackberries and raspberries.

While in the field we found tracks.  

Oh how exciting this was for the boys!

We followed the tracks all over the field. 

They guessed that it might be a skunk, bear, coyote, mole, mouse, rat or rabbit.

I think might be possum tracks.  
I am not an expert, but I did see a possum the other day.

They needed a closer look. 
It was so cute to see them try and figure out what animal it might be.

This was a much needed break. 
We all need to make time to play and enjoy the world around us. 

I love exploring the farm with my little farmer boys.  
 Don't they look sweet?  

What you can't see are the snowballs they threw at me right after I took this picture.  

Sure love these little guys!
