Solstice 2016: Together
No, we don't have snow. This picture was taken at least a couple years ago at the park up the hill from our house. But this weekend did afford the opportunity to pick up some used Nordic skis and boots for Wy so that all three of us will have gear to do some playing in the snow soon. Now that he's almost six, he says he wants to give it a try. So next week, we'll be heading to the snow for some cross-country skiing.
And speaking of new things and our local park, today we spent some time helping Wy practice bike riding. He has kind of ignored his bike for the past year, so we're hoping with a little encouragement that he'll get interested again and develop into a good little rider.
After riding at the park for a bit, the bike was put aside and the three of us played an epic round of hide and seek. We took turns finding hiding spots and trying to discover each other. We played until it started getting dark. Giggling and running and counting to 15 over and over.
We have played at this park with our kiddo for years now. Our games have changed over time, but the simple fun of being together and being silly has not. We're hoping for some silliness together in the snow next week too.
