We went for our morning walk in the mall today because it was FREEZING outside. We had snow in our forecast but it never actually fell. The mall is such a great walking alternative for me for this winter. It is a circle and each lap is about a mile. I am a visual kind of person. I get so bored on a treadmill but walking around the mall seems better somehow. The only downfall is that I need to be careful not to spend money on my walks.
This morning after our walk we went to Chick-fil-a with our walking buddies. Lunch probably negated all our walking efforts but it sure was fun! Moriah usually doesn't like play grounds. She gets scared on them. I am not sure why, but I think it might have something to do with being able to see the ground under her but not being on the ground. She hates mulch because she hates being dirty, so that only leaves the swings for her to play on. She LOVES the swings. Today I found out that she loves indoor play places. I am thrilled! She has never played on one before, and contrary from the outdoor playgrounds, she actually left my side and went exploring. I was so proud at how brave she was. I think visiting play places will be a frequent thing for us this winter.
In the tree house above and just being happy to play below.
