It’s back to being cold here of course, and when we make that first foray to Central Park and then realize that we are freezing – it’s always great to pop into The Met Museum (again) for warmth and an afternoon of sketching sculpture.

While we went to Target to get Zoe her prize for sleeping in her own bed, a snow storm hit and we needed to stop somewhere warm and cozy to eat.

We found a frozen bog while hiking through the woods, and did a little unconventional skating over mossy bits and frozen leaves. It was bumpy, but offered a way to enjoy the cold! The grandparents will be relieved to see that this time we were skating on very shallow water.
