Mosquito Hill on Nathan's Birthday

The sled dog team.
Coming at us.
Down we go.
Trying to eat ice cream when it's freezing outside.
      Nathan's request for his birthday was snowshoeing. Mosquito Hill Nature Center in New London was hosting a winter fest day with snowshoeing and there was actually snow on the ground so off we went. Most of the trails were closed for lack of snow but we were able to make one loop around the main trail before the kids picked the "winter olympic games" instead. We watched sled dog demonstrations, did a little sledding, and played silly games that involved rubber chickens, toilet seats, and eating cold ice cream. We finished the day with mugs of cocoa and homemade chicken noodle soup.

Happy Birthday Nathan. You are an amazing husband, father, and head of our family. We love you so very much.
