We had a small taste of winter this afternoon, and my 5 year old was thrilled to see some snowflakes. She is getting impatient waiting for “good snowperson making snow”. We are heading to WI for the weekend to visit family so hopefully her wihes will come true there! If you are hanging around here though, here are some of the best things to check out!
