She only had her snowshoes on since that corner you can see in the top right. Yet there was no way I was going to be able to stop her from running across the backyard with her pink (of course) snowshoes after me. Finally having her own pair to go out with has been the highlight of her winter. And a true sign that she is growing up much too fast.
One of the things we love about living where we do, out in "the sticks", is looking out into our woods. With just shy of three acres, we're often fortunate to see deer and fox tromping around in these woods. And it has become our daughter's wandering area as she grows. Breaking trail for her and our pup to explore is one of my (many) job titles in the winter. (Many thanks to the tree branch that held my camera for me as I ran off to beat the self timer.)
