BC Is Back!

...And not a moment too soon.

It was so great to get outside again after feeling like this short season of blustery, snow-filled days was more like a year of ongoing white.

I'll take rain any day.

Yes, you can quote me on that.

Today was about puddle walks and fresh air. It was about walking to camp for lunch and home again.

It was about the youngest holding the puppy's leash and walking him down our quiet road to the park. It was about holding hands while we chanted "We're Going On A Bear Hunt", as we strolled down the Guest House driveway.

And it included hangin' out on our park bench while watching the dog run as though he's not been let out in weeks...oh wait, he hasn't.

Yes, I love grey overcast weather...if it means we can get out of the house and breathe in that fresh, damp, non-freezing BC ocean air.

Today was a perfect day to be a Mama.

I miss that! It's -15 to -25 here with 2.5 feet of snow on the ground. I have to admit we're having some extreme temperatures but I do miss the rainy BC weather :)
