This month Kiera shares how she's discovering some new local places to go right in her own neighbourhood, and how getting outdoors with baby Hayden helps her manage with the latest lockdown.
Getting Hayden ready for outside has become such a chore! He's starting to walk now and is such a wiggly worm. I feel like I'm wrestling an alligator into a snowsuit every time we head outside. But I know it's worth it so I dive head first into battle hoping to come out the victor.
Once we do get going he is quite content to hang out in his stroller and take in the sights. He's dressed snug as a bug in his January Baby gear (hat, neckwarmer and smittens) as well as his snowsuit so I don't have to worry about the cold winter weather. We've been lucky with the milder temperatures the past couple of weeks, although some more snow would be magical.
Since we are deep into Lock down part two, we've been sticking very close to home with our outdoor explorations, mostly walking the neighbourhood or exploring our excellent local trails. I often take for granted how many amazing places are right in my own community.
This past weekend we checked out a conservation area just a 10 minute drive from our house that I've never been to before, or even heard about. It was a beautiful little trail in a wooded forest area, not exactly stroller friendly but we managed. Best thing though was the beautiful horses across the road. Hayden's Oma thought he needed to meet them. Hayden was less than impressed.
Exploring local trails has given Hayden and I something to do during lock down. It helps us not feel so trapped. How are you getting outside these days? Have you discovered any new local places?
