Hang in there – Spring is coming

Spring is coming soon which means the cold weather and the dreary days will soon be coming to an end and this momma is beyond ready!

The coldness is just horrible for me, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that it makes me feel like an iguana in Florida on the “cold” days there. Frozen on a tree branch and falling without being able to move because of being stunned by it. It is the closest thing to the “petrifying curse” in Harry Potter to come to life in the real world.

Springtime for me is good campfires, cookouts, and trail hiking with the family in new or known places. Last year I didn’t get to do much trail walking but this year I’m hoping to visit a few new places with the hubby.

However, I will have to replace my Hiking boots as they’re now busting at the seams and sadly, they’re no longer available online but I was able to find these, and I’m hoping they will be just fine for the trips.

Of course, being prepared for a Hiking trip is always a must. Even if it’s just a beginner’s trail, you never know what may come about which is why I always keep one of these backpacks in my car.

It can help if your car breaks down and you’re stuck as well; so, the many “uses” of one bag are just amazing which is a great thing to have when the “unexpected” happens.  

The kids enjoy the trails too but as most do they tend to get bored and want to just call it quits and turn back around, but we play games like “I-spy” and “who can find the prettiest rock”. The year before last I remember I had so many rocks in my backpack after our hike, but the kids enjoyed it and it kept them interested in enjoying the wonders and calmness of the trail.

This year we’re planning to take them all camping again and that is one of the many things I’m looking forward to with the warmer weather. This time though I think I’m going to just pass on the air mattress and sleep on the ground with my sleeping bag.

What are some of the things you’re looking forward to this Spring?

  1. Yay! Spring is the best season. Not hot, not cold, I just love it. Though where I’m the weather doesn’t change in extreme, I still love it.

  2. I can’t wait until the sun rolls in. It’s much to wet and rainy here, and the wing is horrible. But Ireland rarely gets the sun until April/May! But here’s praying.

  3. With spring, summer is also near! Enjoy your outdoor activities and have fun. It’s so exciting for the kids.

  4. I am so glad spring is here. It is one of my favorite seasons (minus the pollen) because it is actually perfect weather to get outdoors before temperatures skyrocket as we get closer to the summer months. I do wish we had places to go hiking but we don’t.
