We did get out to the Saratoga Battlefield on Monday and ended up having the park mostly to ourselves making it an extra treat!
|One of our favorite spots. I wouldn't have wanted to be in this little farmhouse in the cold wind going on we had that day!|
|Maddie on the porch|
|Little Owl getting down for a shot!|
|Way over at the very top of the tree is a C130. I thought that was the best I could get but then....|
|they came back around in a big circle!|
|Right over our head! Unfortunately I got too excited to get a good shot especially with my big fuzzy mittens on.|
|We may have gone off the trail to get this shot...then we had to do an extra tick check.|
We did finally get some snow this week and that made a trip for snowpants necessary. Maddie outgrew the pair I bought this fall before she even wore them! On New Year's Eve Maddie and I decided to make new nature journals. We had learned to make some with a stick as the binding but we went back to our old method. It seems easier to write in because the pages lay flat. My journal is to go along with a knitting project I have going for the year! I am going to knit 2 rows in a color corresponding to the temperature every day and will have a rainbow scarf at the end!
|Brian would like to be home with us but at the same time was happy to miss the mod podge smell!|
|Momma's journal and knitting all ready to go!|
|Maddie's new journal and looking much more like her than the old one made when she was 8 or so.|
|The inside cover with some scrapbook paper and the backing to the new centennial pin we got at Saratoga.|
