Hidden Gems

I love discovering new treasures in my own backyard, and today was one of those very days.  Our nature group visited the Garfield Park Conservatory, located relatively close to home- less than 10 minutes away.  It houses a huge collection of indoor plants and offers a warm location with plenty of room for exploring on two feet.  For a young walker with cabin fever, the place was heavenly. 

Tye wore herself out and is finishing up a long, well-deserved nap.  Activities like this make winter much more bearable.  Plus, I just read on meteorologist Tom Skilling's Facebook page that we're past the halfway point of winter- "Typically 55% of the season's snow has occurred by this date."  We'll be back to our nature walks in no time.

What are your favorite winter activities?
