With the snowy weather we decided to stick a little closer to home for a walk this last weekend. We found ourselves at the Nature Center and Riverwalk in town. But there was still plenty to see...
It was cold and our blood has not quick thickened yet (honestly, I really just wanted to stay home and snuggle next to the fire). But we really needed to get out, so I kept my feelings to myself, and put on an extra layer to head out.
I am so happy I did. It was a beautiful walk filled with new discovries. Now that the leaves are all off the trees we spotted a new wasp nest, which was a neat find. Along with the usual water fowl we also saw a western blue bird, which was very fun to see in flight with all of it's blue and orange feathers putting on a show.
It did start to get pretty cold toward the end of the walk, but that was nothing a little game of "Chase and Capture the Dad" could not cure. It seems to do the trick every time!
Perfect snowflakes came down as we headed back to the car. A beautiful ending to a really lovely walk along the river.
