Slice of Life Day 14

When I got out of school today it was 60°! The sun was shining, there was a light breeze, and a few clouds raced across the sky. It was the perfect day for a long hike with the dogs.

After changing quickly, I grabbed the dogs and headed to Monmouth Battlefield Park. Over the course of almost four miles the dogs and I traversed meadows, forests, and ponds. Vernal pools were popping up throughout the woods, so I kept my ears open for the chorus of wood frogs and spring peepers. I haven’t heard them yet, but I’m sure I will in the next few days!

The dogs enjoyed the long walk and the sunshine. The photo above was taken before we walked through a lot of mud! It’s clear Navan is enjoying the sunshine!

The hike took a little over an hour, and it felt glorious. I love snow, but today’s spring-like weather has me excited for the change in seasons!
