This Little Robin

It snowed during the night. Not enough to qualify as snowfall but just enough to coat the ground and then freeze over. Despite having poorly boys, we wrapped everyone up and headed out.

Every time we head to Shipley Park this little robin comes to say hello. We stood watching him for a while as he ate berries from the trees.

The boys climb in the play area, then hunt for rocks (we find 4 today and re-hide some previous finds). They push their wellies through the thin sheets of ice atop the puddles. They enthusiastically attempt the exercise machines dotted around the park.

But mostly, we just enjoy the cold and the grass crunching underfoot.
