You don't look like you're having much fun

It snowed, finally, enough for us to go snowshoeing. Yay, I thought. I love snowshoeing. And carrying Charlotte on my back will make this real exercise, I thought. Perfect.

Holy smokes, that was REAL exercise, alright. Can you see Matt up at the top there? Unless he stopped and waited for me, this was as close as we ever got. At one point, he turned around and said "you don't look like you're having much fun." I grunted my response. I was not having much fun, but I didn't want to admit that because it was my idea to go in the first place.

 It turned into a Gilligan's Island kind of activity, the kind where you're only planning on being out for 2 hours, and the next thing you know, it's been over 3 and you're still not back to the car. Charlotte got so annoyed that she somehow got her hat flipped inside out and upside down.

 Gus, however, loved it.

We went again the next day. This is the view I had:
Much easier! Also, isn't it funny how it looks like she's in upside down? We put wool socks over her hands (and arms) so that she can't lose her mittens.

The whole thing made me realize exactly how out of shape I have become. Now that the holiday's are over, I'm back to trying to eat healthy and move my body more often. Hopefully that will mean more outdoor adventures to post!
