So this past weekend we decided that we would try our feet at snowshoeing. I think in our minds we had this awesome idea that it would be easy, maybe not easy.... but doable. And it was, for a short, short time. Thankfully we ended up renting the snowshoes. Finn did great walking, the problem was that all he wanted to do was make snow angels and eat the snow. As soon as we persuaded forced him into the pack, Owen decided he was done snowshoeing. When O has decided enough is enough there is no talking him back into it. We tried and I ended up just getting frustrated.... 'what?! didnt my boys love being cold and snow blown....???' After re-thinking my expectations and realizing that this was a lot to ask of them, B and I decided we were done and headed back to the car. We did end up getting to Brainard Lake, our destination.... we only saw it for a split second before turning around.
