Winter here in South Texas can be unpredictable but my kids have a tendancy to overdress just because they can. Check out EMN's fancy crown in addition to her snazzy hat. Temperatures eventually climbed into the 60s but the hats and gloves were never far away. At that point I think it's safe to say they are more of a fashion statement than a necessity.
Today was a Daddy/Daughter and Mother/Son day in our family. The first half went on an ice-skating outing at a local rink. Those photos are trapped on a camera phone but suffice it to say that EMN's giggles provided lots of smiles for Daddy and she was beyond thrilled to be on the ice for the first time. We hope to go as a family soon. Since the camera is never far from my side, it went on the train trip with MTN and me. However, my son is a bit camera shy these days and prefers that I keep it in my bag. The train we rode is down by the San Antonio zoo and we had a great time. It's about a 20 minute ride and we followed that with a leisurely stroll around the parks enjoying the great weather. It was nice spending an afternoon with him with out errands to run and schedules to keep. Next month we switch and I look forward to a girls day!
